“Mesopotamian Temple Inventories in the Third and Second Millennia BCE: Integrating Archaeological,



The central aim of this conference is the meaningful integration of archaeological remains, textual sources, and the ancient visual record relating to Mesopotamian temple inventories of the third and second millennium BCE. We maintain that such a multidisciplinary approach will make the constitution of Mesopotamian sacred space through objects and practices more accessible. Special consideration will be given to the overall societal function as well as ideological and economic impacts of sacred gifting.
