Description - Religious Texts from Ugarit by Nicolas Wyatt

This translation and commentary on the Ugaritic texts is aimed at general readers as well as students and specialists in biblical, classical and religious studies. The Ugaritic texts have long been recognized as basic background material for Old Testament study. Ugaritic deities, myths, religious terminology, poetic techniques and general vocabulary are widely encountered by the attentive reader of the Hebrew Bible. This edition has a modern translation and commentary based on scrutiny of the original tablets and recent academic discussion. While addressing the needs of accurate translation, it also attempts to take seriously demands for a readable English version.
