Description

The objective of the present book is to give a comprehensive discussion of representations of the goddess Nanaja. An analysis of the role of this goddess and the perception that the ancient inhabitants of Mesopotamia had of her will aid in a better understanding of the entire pantheon of the Sumerians, Babyloanians and Assyrians. Following the example set by authors of other monographs of deities, I have analyzed cuneiform sources, which contain mentions of Nanaja, coming from many ancient citites of Mesopotamia and representing very different literary genres. To achieve a clearer picture I have refrained from chronologically dividing the material into millennia or geographically into centers where the goddess was worshipped. Instead, I have grouped together texts either of the same genre or which close thematically, reflecting specific aspects under which Nanaja was vernated.show more
