La Mésopotamie antique fait l’objet de passionnantes découvertes depuis le xixe siècle. Berceau de notre civilisation, elle a vu naître l’écriture vers la fin du IVe millénaire av. J.-C. Les centaines de milliers de textes qui nous sont parvenus de ces époques lointaines, alliés aux témoignages archéologiques, nous font connaître un monde enchanté où tout, à divers degrés, est sacré. Chaque activité humaine implique l’intervention d’un dieu. Dans ce contexte, les temples consacrés aux divinités ont de quoi nous surprendre. Loin d’être simplement des lieux de culte, où le clergé prenait soin des divinités présentes dans des statues, ils étaient le cadre d’activités de la vie quotidienne : les temples de Shamash, dieu de la justice, fonctionnaient comme des tribunaux ; ceux de Gula, déesse de la santé, comme des centres de cure ; ceux de Nabu, dieu de l’écriture, comme des bibliothèques ; ceux d’Ishtar, déesse de l’amour, comme des maisons de plaisir. En un mot, retracer la vie méconnue de ces temples, c’est tenter de recouvrer celle de ces hommes d’un autre temps. Tel est l’objet de ce livre issu de l’enseignement de Dominique Charpin au Collège de France.

This book uses insights from religious studies, literary theory, and the history of science for understanding the Sumerian composition "Nanse and the Birds" in the context of the Old Babylonian scribal school. The discussions of Babylonian religion, literature, and scholarship focus on the usefulness and relevance of these modern concepts for categorizing the ancient text. The volume presents the first critical edition of "Nanse and the Birds," as well as editions of the hymn Nanse B and all third millennium and Old Babylonian lexical lists of birds. It includes 37 plates with photographs and line drawings, including many previously unpublished tablets. The final chapter discusses the identity and orthography of all Sumerian bird names in literary, administrative and lexical texts.

The Kasidah Of Haji Abdu El Yesdi

According to Wikipedia: The Kasidah of Haji Abdu El-Yezdi is a long poem written by Haji Abdu El-Yezdi, who is widely considered an invention by the true author, Sir Richard Francis Burton. In a note to the reader, Burton claims to be the translator of the poem, to which he gives the English title Lay of the Higher Law. In notes following the poem, Burton claims to have received the manuscript from his friend Haji Abdu, a native of Darabghird in the Yezd Province of Persia. Describing Haji Abdu, Burton writes that he spoke an array of languages and notes that his memory was well-stored; and he had every talent save that of using his talents. The Sufi writer Idries Shah, in his book The Sufis, states that The Kasidah was a distillation of Sufi thought, and that there seems little doubt that Burton was trying to project Sufi teaching in the West... In Sufism he finds a system of application to misguided faiths 'which will prove them all right, and all wrong; which will reconcile their differences; will unite past creeds; will account for the present and will anticipate the future with a continuous and uninterrupted development.'

In any definition of terms, Dutch literature must be taken to mean all literature written in Dutch, thus excluding literature in Frisian, even though Friesland is part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, in the same way as literature in Welsh would be excluded from a history of English literature. Simi larly, literature in Afrikaans (South African Dutch) falls outside the scope of this book, as Afrikaans from the moment of its birth out of seventeenth-century Dutch grew up independently and must be regarded as a language in its own right. . Dutc:h literature, then, is the literature written in Dutch as spoken in the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the so-called Flemish part of the Kingdom of Belgium, that is the area north of the linguistic frontier which runs east-west through Belgium passing slightly south of Brussels. For the modern period this definition is clear anough, but for former times it needs some explanation. What do we mean, for example, when we use the term 'Dutch' for the medieval period? In the Middle Ages there was no standard Dutch language, and when the term 'Dutch' is used in a medieval context it is a kind of collective word indicating a number of different but closely related Frankish dialects. The most important of those were the dialects of the duchies of Limburg and Brabant, and of the counties of Flanders and Holland.
