Melammu, the Mandaeans and other Mesopotamians

Charles Jones posted at Ancient World Online about the Melammu project, which has a digital library dedicated to “The Intellectual Heritage of Assyria and Babylonia in East and West.”

The site contains numerous interesting pieces, but not surprisingly the one that grabbed my attention was Amar Annus’ “Some Otherworldly Journeys in Mesopotamian, Jewish, Mandaean and Yedzidi Traditions.”

Others potentially of interest to those who study ancient Christian and Gnostic literature include Simo Parpola’s “Mesopotamian Precursors to the Hymn of the Pearl” and Amar Annus’ “The Soul’s Journey and Tauroctony.”
