Astral Magic in Babylonia

Author Erica Reiner collected the Near Eastern material for this book over many years of association with the “Chicago Assyrian Dictionary.” She culled her sources from such scientific texts as medicine, divination, & rituals, which are not usually included in anthologies of Mesopotamian texts & are rarely available in translation. Chapters: The Role of Stars; The Art of the Herbalist; Medicine; Divination; Apotropaia; Sorcerers & Sorceresses; The Nature of Stones; & Nocturnal Rituals. Illustrations.
