Item description for The Purity of Kingship: An Edition of Cht 569 and Related Hittite Oracle Inquiries of Tuthaliya IV (Studies in the History and Culture of the Ancient Near East , No 15) by Theo P. J. Van Den Hout...

Confronted with an illness and other disconcerting signs shortly before his royal inauguration, the Hittite Great King Tuthaliya IV (ca. 1240-1210 B.C.) looks for past affairs of rebellion within the royal family. Members of the ruling dynasty up to three generations back have taken recourse to black magic in their search for power. Their curses are felt to be still effective and have contaminated the institution of Kingship. The King conducts an extensive series of oracle inquiries in order to find ways to reconcile the (for the most part deceased) family members and to render their curses ineffective. The texts of these inquiries shed light on daily life in the Hittite empire, and, in this case, daily life of the King of the Hittites. The reconstruction of these oracle inquiries forms the subject of the underlying volume. The author offers not only a full edition of the texts, but also introductory chapters on topics of wider importance such as text constitution, techniques for recording oracles and the persons involved and historical setting of the composite text.
