Prof. Dr. Pascal Attinger has taught Ancient Near Eastern languages at the University of Bern for twenty years. He owes his international reputation to his works on Sumerian grammar and Sumerian literature of the Old Babylonian period. The present volume brings together twenty contributions by his friends, colleagues and doctoral students, mainly concentrating on the 500 years spanning the turn from the third to the second millennium BCE. Some studies deal with philological and linguistic aspects of Sumerian and Semitic Akkadian, including its dialects, while others focus on issues of history and culture. Several contributions present new editions of Sumerian (literary) texts, some of them hitherto unpublished.
