Textual Sources of the Assyrian Empire


The LMU Munich- [] and Humboldt Foundation-funded [] Textual Sources of the Assyrian Empire (TSAE) is presently a search project that is intended to facilitate quick and easy access to a wide range of open-access editions of ancient Assyrian texts, all of which at this time are hosted on the Open Richly Annotated Cuneiform Corpus [] (Oracc) platform. All of the projects are directly or indirectly managed by members of the chair of the Alexander von Humboldt Chair for Ancient History of the Near and Middle East of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Historisches Seminar - Abteilung Alte Geschichte), Karen Radner [] and Jamie Novotny []. The Assyrian texts included here under a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike [] license.

As is obvious from the project's name, the scope of TSAE is textual sources of the Assyrian Empire, mostly from the eighth and seventh centuries BC. This Oracc-based search project proxies in data from the following four open-access projects:

TSAE is part of the LMU-Munich-based Munich Open-access Cuneiform Corpus Initiative [] (MOCCI; directed by Karen Radner and Jamie Novotny). Funding for the ATAE corpus project has been provided by LMU Munich and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (through the establishment of the Alexander von Humboldt Chair for Ancient History of the Near and Middle East).
