This volume is intended to be the first in a series that will focus on the origin of script and the boundaries of non-scribal communication media in proto-literate and literate societies of the ancient Aegean. Over the last 30 years, the domain of scribes and bureaucrats has become much better known. Our goal now is to reach below the élite and scribal levels to interface with non-scribal operations conducted by people of the ‘middling’ sort. Who made these marks and to what purpose? Did they serve private or (semi-) official roles in Bronze Age Aegean society? The comparative study of such practices in the contemporary East (Cyprus, Anatolia, the Levant, and Egypt) can shed light on sub-elite activities in the Aegean and also provide evidence for cultural and economic exchange networks.

Die Renaissance war eine Revolution, die erst Europa und dann die ganze Welt für immer veränderte. In seinem grandios erzählten Buch entfaltet Bernd Roeck ein beeindruckendes Panorama dieser dramatischen Epoche. Zugleich erklärt er im Horizont der Globalgeschichte, wieso es in Europa zu dieser einzigartigen Verdichtung von weltbewegenden Ideen, spektakulären Entdeckungen und historischen Umwälzungen kommen konnte. Um die Wurzeln der Renaissance freizulegen, blickt Bernd Roeck weit ins Mittelalter und die Antike zurück – und weit über die Grenzen Europas hinaus. Mit analytischer Schärfe und darstellerischem Glanz lässt er die Epoche vor den Augen des Lesers auferstehen: die große Kunst, die unter Italiens Himmel entstand, und die Ideen der Humanisten ebenso wie die Religionskriege und die Anfänge der Unterwerfung fremder Erdteile. Er erzählt von Kaufleuten und Dichtern, Kaisern und Päpsten, klugen Frauen und monströsen Männern, von den Großen der Zeit und den Kleinen, die fern der Paläste mit Krankheit und Hunger kämpften. Schließlich zeigt dieses Opus magnum, dass die Renaissance mit ihren Innovationen nicht nur Sehnsuchtsorte der Schönheit und des Geistes schuf, sondern auch die Fundamente für unsere moderne Welt.

Despite siginificant advances in annual chronology, the Old Assyrian trade fundamentally lacked a regime of time at the level of the merchant’s commercial and personal activities. In this book, Stratford sets out to recapture time through narrative, drawing on the relationship between the two described by the philosopher Paul Ricouer. Investigating a possible case of revenge leads to weaving together more than a hundred mostly undated documents to form a narrative within the course of a single year of vengeance, including trade disruptions, illnesses, and commerce. This process demonstrates relationships between document and material context, and time and narrative. Along the way, Old Assyrian commercial time and its tempos become more clear, leading to descriptions of the scale of the trade and the nature of Old Assyrian archives as they have survived. Ultimately, the Assyrians involved appear as the earliest historical individuals in world history. The treatment of Šalim-aḫum’s apparent revenge comprises a practicuum in historical interpretation in the ancient world of interest to practitioners and theoreticians of both the ancient world and world history.

Offering fascinating insights into the people and politics of the ancient near Eastern kingdoms, Trevor Bryce uses the letters of the five Great Kings of Egypt, Babylon, Hatti, Mitanni and Assyria as the focus of a fresh look at this turbulent and volatile region in the late Bronze Age. Numerous extracts from the letters are constantly interwoven into the fabric of narrative and discussion, and this lively approach allows us to witness history through the eyes of the people who lived it, revealing the personalities and reactions of kings, queens, princes, princesses and royal officials more than 3500 years ago to the current events of the day.
