Overview

This volume covers the views held by the Babylonians and the Assyrians regarding magic and oracles, their relation to minor and major gods, their prayers and hymns, their myths and legends, and their views on life after death. Jastrow also examines the religious architecture that has been found and the history of Babylonian and Assyrian temples.
