After the reign of Hammurabi, the Babylonians were attacked and weakened by the Hittites, a group of people from Asia Minor. The capital city of Babylon was sacked.
Eventually, the Assyrians would conquer Babylon and Mesopotamia, but the lasting achievements of Babylon included advances in mathematics, astronomy and trade. The language is Akkadian.
Sennacherb, king of Assyria from BC, had this made. The Taylor Prism is now in the British Museum. Assyria is an area located in Upper Mesopotamia, and named after the Assyrians. For many years the Assyrians were overshadowed by the Sumerians and Akkadians.
Assyria and Babylonia
Ashur was the chief god of the Assyrians. Most of their cities were located along the Tigris River. The Assyrians built large palaces made of stone, which was available to them in Upper Mesopotamia.
Nineveh had become an old worn-down city with much erosion from the river, but Sennacherib rebuilt the city, abandoning his father's brand new city that was almost complete when Sennacherib took the throne. Notice Asia Minor, the land of the Hittites. Which empire was larger, the Babylonian or Assyrian Empire? Here the Assyrian king stored much of the writing of ancient Mesopotamia, including the Epic of Gilgamesh.
After Assyria, Babylon had one more time of greatness, but it was short-lived. We will learn about the Neo-Babylonian Empire in the next chapter.
The siege of Lachish: The courts of Iranian c. New genres came into being; others were adapted or survived relatively unchanged; still others disappeared completely. Temples were the last bastions of cuneiform scholarship until at least the final centuries BCE.
A diachronic analysis of four scholarly libraries While many hundreds of individual scholarly works have been edited and published from cuneiform libraries, there have been almost no in-depth studies of the libraries in their entirety.
Previous analyses have often decontextualised and fragmented Assyro-Babylonian scholarship into modern disciplinary categories such as 'science', 'magic', and 'religion'. This project aims to restore context and coherence to that scholarship by studying it holistically. To that end we are undertaking a comparative study of four scholarly libraries for which adequate archaeological data exist: Later in the project, we will make quantitative analyses of the manuscripts' linguistic and orthographic features to look for small-scale and large-scale geographical and diachronic change.
We will use methodology from the history of science to explain those continuities, changes, and idiosyncracies in relation to the social, intellectual, and political contexts in which the scholars were working. This freely available, online corpus of material from the four libraries is being critically edited according to Assyriological best practice, based on collation of the original tablets wherever possible.
It contains searchable transliterations of both manuscripts tablets and compositions composite texts as well as English translations and full bibliographies. One of the advantages of web-based edition is that revisions and improvements are easy to implement. The project thus has a policy of publishing its editorial work promptly, returning later to revise transliterations and translations as necessary.
