Book Information

   

Title: Divine Epithets in the Ugaritic Alphabetic Texts
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=18&pid=27735
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 1: The Near and Middle East, 93
Description:

This volume comprises an analysis of 112 divine epithets occurring in the
alphabetic cuneiform texts from Ras Shamra and Ras Ibn Hani. It is intended
to encompass all the epithets of the individual Ugaritic deities,
semi-divine, and demonic beings, both good and evil, attested in the
published texts. The epithets are profound expressions of the religious
views of the ancient Ugaritians and their comprehension is essential for
understanding the role, character, and status of the various deities in the
Ugaritic pantheon. Particular attention has been paid to parallel divine
epithets in Akkadian, biblical Hebrew, and classical Arabic.

Readership:

All those interested in Semitic philology and linguistics, Ancient Near
Eastern religion and literature, biblical studies, and history of religion.
