Informationen zur Veranstaltung

International conference organized by Dr. Jean Evans, Dr. Paola Paoletti und Dr. Elisa Roßberger, and sponsored by the Graduate School Distant Worlds and the Institute of Near Eastern Archaeology, LMU Munich. The conference will take place at the Centre for Advanced Studies (Seestr. 3, 80802 München) within the framework of the CAS Senior Fellowship 2016/17 of Prof. Adelheid Otto and Prof. Walther Sallaberger.

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.
