Description

Exploring Hittite archives controlled by the same dynasty for almost five centuries, AT describes what happened to Mesopotamian texts in Akkadian when adopted for Hittite use and adapted for Hittite sensibilities. Since multiple copies of translated texts were found in these archives, AT is able to illustrate how scribes managed different types of texts as they translated, edited, rewrote, and recopied them for Hittite consumption. She then explores how insights from her survey may be applied to biblical literature.
