Middle Eastern mythology by S. H Hooke( Book )

68 editions published between 1900 and 2005 in 6 languages and held by 1,258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the last half-century the discoveries of archaeologists in the ancient Near East, now called the Middle East, have created a widespread interest in the ways of life and thought of the dweller in that region, and especially in their myths. For much of Greek, Roman and even Celtic mythology has its source in the traditions and legends of the ancient Near East. This book renders an absorbing account, based on first-hand sources, of the fascinating mythology of the Egyptians, Babylonians, Assyrians, Hittites, Canaanites and Hebrews. In addition, the author discusses the nature and function of myth very fully, and devotes a chapter to the important subject of the place of myth in Christianity
