Mesopotamian Goddess Nanaja
Warszawa, Wydawnictwo Agade. 2008. (ISBN: 9788387111410). Hardcover, 24x17 cm. Book, ISBN: 978-83-87111-41-0 Description: hardback, XXI+192 pp. (17x24cm) Condition: very good Weight: 470g. The objective of the present study 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, Babylonians 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 cities 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 venerated. PREFACE ABBREVIATIONS INTRODUCTION Chapter I: NANAJA'S PLACE ON THE GOD LISTS I.1 Nanaja's Family According to the God Lists I.2 Nanaja's Family after Other Documents Chapter II: THE CULT OF NANAJA II.1 Offerings II.2 Votive Gifts Statues and Statuettes Year Formulas Texts Concerning Robes and Ornaments II.3 Places of Worship of Nanaja Names of Territories Connected with Nanaja II.4 The Priesthood of Nanaja II.5 The Image of Nanaja Based on Rituals II.6 Personal Names with the Name of Nanaja Chapter III: THE IMAGE OF NANAJA BASED ON MAGIC AND DIVINATION TEXTS III.1 The Role Played by Nanaja in Magic Spells III.2 The Omens of Nanaja III.3 Nanaja in Oath Formulas Chapter IV: HYMNS AND PRAYERS TO THE GODDESS NANAJA Chapter V: LOVE LYRICS CONNECTED WITH THE GODDESS NANAJA Chapter VI: NANAJA IN TEXTS OF LAMENTS Chapter VII: THE GODDESS NANAJA IN KUDURRU DOCUMENTS Chapter VIII: THE IMAGE OF NANAJA BASED ON LETTERS SUMMARY Appendix: THE PERIPHERIES BIBLIOGRAPHY.
