Religious Discourse in the Ancient Near East - 12-13/12/2019, Paris (France)




This conference will bring together specialists in Luwian and experts in the adjacent languages and cultures and comparative religion. Using the Luwili team’s preliminary translations of Luwian religious texts as their logical starting points whenever relevant, the conference participants will explore the modalities of religious language among various subgroups of Hittite-Luwian compositions and other languages of the area. A particular emphasis will be placed on the exchange of opinions among the team members on how their findings contribute to deciphering of Luwian incantations and the improved understanding of the ritual practices they allude to.
