This volume, edited by Tzvi Zbusch and Karel van der Toorn,
contains the papers delivered at the first international conference
on Mesopotamian magic held under the auspices of the Netherlands
Institute for Advanced Studies (NIAS) in June 1995. It is the first
collective volume dedicated to the study of this topic. It aims at
serving as a bench-mark and provides analytic and innovative but
also sythetic and programmatic essays. Magical texts, forms, and
traditions from the Mesopotamian cultural worlds of the third
millennium BCE through the first millennium CE, in the Sumerian,
Akkadian and Aramaic languages as well as in art, are examined.
