Author:
Akkadian Royal Letters in Later Mespotamian Tradition reconsiders the question of the authenticity of the letters attributed to earlier royal correspondents that were studied in Assyrian and Babylonian scribal centres ca. 700–100 BCE. By scrutinizing the letters’ contents, language, possible transmission histories ca. 1400–100 BCE and the epistemic limitations of authenticity criticism, the book grounds scepticism about the letters’ authenticity in previously undiscussed features of the texts. It also provides a new foundation for research into the related questions of when and why these beguiling texts were composed in the first place.
The Dynamics of Mediation in the Biblical World and Old Babylonian Mari
Author:
In Prophet, Intermediary, King: The Dynamics of Mediation in the Biblical World and Old Babylonian Mari, Julie B. Deluty investigates the mediation of prophecy for kings in biblical narratives and the Old Babylonian corpus from Mari. In many cases, the prophet’s message is delivered through a third party—sometimes a royal official or family member—who may exercise a degree of autonomy in the transmission of the words. Drawing on social network theory, the book highlights the importance of third-party intermediaries in the process of communication that lies at the core of biblical and ancient Near Eastern prophecy. Recognition of the place of non-prophetic intermediaries in a monarchic system offers a new dimension to the study of prophecy in antiquity.

Textiles are among the oldest artifacts produced by Man. Even during prehistoric times the production of cloth involved large groups of people, and textiles were an important object of international trade, often over distances spanning over thousands of miles.Textiles and costume have throughout history expressed social function and status and inspired the highest forms of artistic expression. It was the development of dyes that constituted the beginnings of modern chemistry.
The Studies in Textile and Costume History are concerned with every aspect of textile and costume, no matter what age or geographical location. Subjects include: raw materials; dyes; nonwoven materials such as leather and felt; production techniques, from the raw material to weaving, sewing et cetera; design, fashion, art historical aspects;the uses of textiles and their rôle in society; trade;archaeology, and social and economic history of the craft; terminology.
