Synopsis

This resource aims to gather together all of the Chicago Assyrian Dictionary’s many references to the Amarna Letters, including translations, cross-references, and notes of a bibliographical or philological variety. In so doing, scholars whose work relates to the Amarna Letters ( e.g. Assyriologists, biblical scholars, Egyptologists, archaeologists) now have the fruit of the CAD’s extensive research together in a single document and can easily see if and how a particular line has been  taken by the CAD’s editors across the various volumes. A secondary  aim is to provide a foundation for studying the CAD as a window into the history of Assyriology.
