AUTHOR

Pritchard, James B.

SUMMARY

This anthology brought together the most important historical, legal, mythological, liturgical, and secular texts of the ancient Near East, with the purpose of providing a rich contextual base for understanding the people, cultures, and literature of the Old Testament. A scholar of religious thought and biblical archaeology, James Pritchard recruited the foremost linguists, historians, and archaeologists to select and translate the texts. The goal, in his words, was "a better understanding of the likenesses and differences which existed between Israel and the surrounding cultures." Before the publication of these volumes, students of the Old Testament found themselves having to search out scattered books and journals in various languages. This anthology brought these invaluable documents together, in one place and in one language, thereby expanding the meaning and significance of the Bible for generations of students and readers. As one reviewer put it, "This great volume is one of the most notable to have appeared in the field of Old Testament scholarship this century." Princeton published a follow-up companion volume,The Ancient Near East in Pictures Relating to the Old Testament(1954), and later a one-volume abridgment of the two,The Ancient Near East: An Anthology of Texts and Pictures(1958). The continued popularity of this work in its various forms demonstrates that anthologies have a very important role to play in education--and in the mission of a university press.Pritchard, James B. is the author of 'Ancient Near Eastern Texts Relating to the Old Testament With Supplement', published 1969 under ISBN 9780691035031 and ISBN 0691035032.
