    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This book brings together ancient manuscripts of the large compendium of Mesopotamian exorcistic incantations known as Udug.hul (Utukku Lemnutu), directed against evil demons, ghosts, gods, and other demonic malefactors within the Mesopotamian view of the world.It allows for a more accurate appraisal of variants arising from a text tradition spread over more than two millennia and from many ancient libraries.

    Reviews

    "For anyone seriously interested in investigating the impact of the incantation literature (Udug-hul in particular) on the history and practice of Mesopotamian medicine, this volume is, for all intents and purposes, irreplaceable."
    Michael S. Moore in: RBL 12/2016
