Cuneiform Commentaries Project: Editing History's Earliest Hermeneutic Texts, Online and in Print

Preparation for online publication of an edition and translation of 878 extant Mesopotamian cuneiform tablets, together with a print translation of selected commentaries on scientific texts. (36 months)

The Cuneiform Commentaries Project seeks to make Mesopotamian commentaries available to Assyriologists and other scholars by providing annotated editions and translations of all of them in digital form. This will allow maximum accessibility and searchability. In addition, editions of selected commentaries will be published in print, to offer a convenient introduction to the genre for a more general audience. The project is linked to other digital initiatives in Assyriology, collaborations that provide synergies and ensure the sustainability of the data generated.
