Online Books on Mesopotamian mythology and religion
« on: September 27, 2011, 10:54:36 am »
Spesifically Babylonian, I've just had a recent fascination with the subject, but the problem is I don't know any books and if I did I couldn't afford them, so pdf's would be much appreciated.

Are you familiar with the Etana archive site? (Warning: it's often slow to load)

Sacred Texts has a good collection of ancient Middle Eastern books. A lot of them are outdated, but there's apparently some good ones; Just make sure you don't make any of them the end-all of your researching.
" For this feeling of wonder shows that you are a philosopher, since wonder is the only beginning of philosophy..." - Socrates to Theaetetus.
