A Common Set of Trial Terms (Article)
Title: A Common Set of Trial Terms
Author: Shalom Holtz
Abstract: The purpose of this article is to draw on the formulation of Neo-Babylonian trial records in order to identify a linguistically and conceptually parallel set of trial terms in Dtn 17:4, Jer 8:6 and Job 5:27. The Hebrew and Akkadian texts provide evidence for a common convention of trial description. According to this convention, trials begin with a spoken report, followed by “hearing”, all of which result in “established” facts.

The Career of a Neo-Babylonian Court Scribe (Article)
Title: The Career of a Neo-Babylonian Court Scribe
Author: Shalom Holtz
Abstract: This article traces the career of a scribe who began work in the vicinity of Babylon as a member of a limited group of court scribes who recorded legal proceedings overseen by the Neo-Babylonian royal judges. Later in life he moved from the Babylon region to Uruk, where he advanced beyond his original position as scribe. His career sheds light on the administration of justice outside of Babylon proper, and provides an example of how a career as a scribe was the first step towards a more advanced legal vocation in Neo-Babylonian Mesopotamia.
