REVISED AND CORRECTED TEXTS OF WALKER AND DICK’S INDUCTION OF THE CULT IMAGE IN MESOPOTAMIA (2001)



Updated Critical Edition of Mīs
by Michael B. Dick





What follows are thoroughly updated files based on the Walker & Dick 2001 Critical Edition. These are temporarily available on this Siena College Web Page; eventually they will be part of the University of Pennsylvania’s Oracc collection. The files here are in PDF format. Some editing on them continues, e.g. I am continuing to place the English translation side by side with the Akkadian/ Sumerian rather than following as in the Book.Though these texts show page numbers, they do not correspond to those of the 2001 book.

  • Use of these texts in scholarship should follow the Budapest Convention of November 2001.
  • I ask you to send me corrections, new readings, new bibliography, and new texts for incorporation (with due credit to you): dick@siena.edu
  • For incantation Tablet V, I have also included the Word 2010© file so that somebody familiar with Oracc’s *.ATF file format might help me in my gradual converting the text to that standard. If some kind soul could please send me several files or parts of that file showing the various steps in that conversion so I can use that as a template n all the files.
