Asia Anteriore Antice: Journal of Ancient Near Eastern Cultures (AsiAna)
ISSN: 2611-8912
Page Header Logo
Asia Anteriore Antica (AsiAnA) is an international Journal of Ancient Near Eastern Cultures studies founded and edited by scholars of different disciplines and approaches (philology, linguistics, history, archaeology), and cooperating in common researches and field projects based on an interdisciplinary perspective. 
FOCUS
Asia Anteriore Antica (AsiAnA) focuses on the variegated scenario of the emergence, development and crises of the ancient Near East cultures analysed in the plurality of their distinct and intertwining characters, languages, writing and literacy, administration and material culture, arts and politics, economy and trade, ideology and religion. All these lements shaped a civilization which strongly impacted on the history of the ancient world.  Exploring this plurality of issues from different perspectives can add to our understanding of the social dynamics and the spatial and chronological trajectories that forged the Near Eastern cultures over a long duration. 
AIM
Asia Anteriore Antica (AsiAnA) will present studies in different disciplines, Hittitology, Assyriology, Semitistics, History, Archaeology and Art History of the ancient Near East aiming to diffuse the results of researches such as excavation reports, edition of epigraphic sources, studies on philological data, visual arts, archaeology and archaeometry. With the intent of confronting different scientific voices of these disciplines and crossing their traditional borders the journal will supply a handy tool of scholarly information on various subjects, open to the international debate and innovative theoretical issues.

An interdisciplinary essay collection from an international group of experts
For several decades sociologists and cultural anthropologists have intensively researched the role of the senses in a variety of cultures, and their studies show how diverse cultures understand and evaluate the five or more senses differently. In this collection of eighteen essays, biblical and ancient Near Eastern scholars, as well as cultural anthropologists, apply the questions and methods from anthropological and sociological studies to Israel, Mesopotamia, and Egypt. Experts offer insights into the meaning of the senses in the ancient world, examining the classical senses (seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, tasting) as well as other senses (such as kinesthesis and the sense of balance) and sense-related issues (such as disgust, sensory imagination, and disabilities). This collection provides a stimulus and a basis for students and scholars to explore the senses in the ancient Near East.
Features
  • Exploration of the relationship between sensory experience and reasoning
  • Assessments of how theory and practice of the senses relate to each other
  • Essays examining connections between emotions and senses
Annette Schellenberg is Professor of Old Testament in the Faculty of Protestant Theology at the University of Vienna. She is the author of Der Mensch, das Bild Gottes? Zum Gedanken einer Sonderstellung des Menschen im Alten Testament und in weiteren altorientalischen Quellen (2011).
Thomas Krüger is Professor of Old Testament at the University of Zurich. He is the author of Qoheleth: A Commentary (2004) and Das menschliche Herz und die Weisung Gottes: Studien zur alttestamentlichen Anthropologie und Ethik (2009).

Ebla Digital Archives update

Ebla Digital Archives update
Second slide
The editors of EbDA (Ebla Digital Archives project) are pleased to announce the following updates to the portal for the study of the Ebla texts (http://ebda.cnr.it):
 
  • A new volume of Ebla texts is now available within EbDA: A. Archi 2018 (with the collaboration of G. Spada), Administrative Texts.: Allotments of Clothing for the Palace Personnel (Archive L. 2769).
    Archivi Reali di Ebla Testi 20, Wiesbaden: Harrassovitz Verlag. 
  •  Major photo update: 429 new photos belonging to several ARET and MEE volumes have been added to the database. This update makes all photos presently published in print volumes available on-line. 
  • User interface improvements: the label of the text being browsed now appears as name of the browser's windows/tab (useful if one has several tabs open); filtered data tables now keep track of the last known state (no need to re-apply the filter after clicking on a link); minor internal fixes.

At present, EbDA not only provides the largest number of Ebla texts available on line, including hundreds of corrections and harmonized transliterations, but also one of the most advanced search engine for
cuneiform documents, thanks to the ability to represent non-linear sequences of text, built-in graphemic queries (search for a sequence of sign names regardless of their reading in context), support to regular expressions, and extensive bibliography.

The Ebla Digital Archives project is based at, and funded by Ca' Foscari University of Venice, with the collaboration of Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Roma.
