  • About the Edition

    The author discusses tutelary deities, who play a rather prominent role in the Hittite state cult ceremonies. The book includes critical editions and discussions of all the festival texts that describe festivals devoted primarily or exclusively to tutelary deities. One of these festivals involves a kind of theological exercise in naming all of the possible tutelary deities, and another involves the replacing of an old cult image with a new one. In addition to the festivals for tutelary deities, their role in the cult in general is discussed in a comprehensive chapter.

    Ala was worshiped in the Hittite towns of Karaḫna [ de], Kalašmita, and Winiyanta (Oinoanda), along with the tutelary god. At Winiyanta, there was a spring festival in her honour. In the Iron Age she merged with the goddess Kubaba. Most notably, while Mesopotamian gods, especially Marduk and Assur and before them Enlil and Ninurta, tend to collect attributes, the Hittites themselves collect gods, proudly boasting of the thousand gods of Ḫatti. Likewise, Hittite deities tend to overlap without redundancy, such that each overlapping (weather) god is an independent actor.

    Why Are There No Israelite Priestesses? Hittite texts show us that in the ancient Near East, women, including the queen, served as priestesses. The biblical authors, in their fervor for YHWH, monotheism, and centralization of worship through one Temple and one priesthood, strongly objected. The short Hittite fragment /c=KBo , currently listed among the texts related to the thunder festival under the number of the Catalogue des Textes Hittites, presents some features that.

    National gods are a class of guardian divinities or deities whose special concern is the safety and well-being of an ethnic group (), and of that group's is contrasted with other guardian figures such as family gods responsible for the well-being of individual clans or professions, or personal gods who are responsible for the well-being of individuals.
