Psychohistory of an Assyrian King
Professor Frahm’s main research interests are Assyrian and Babylonian history and Mesopotamian scholarly texts of the first millennium BCE. His undergraduate courses at Yale include topics in Mesopotamian history, religion, and literature, and the Bible in its ancient Near Eastern setting. Professor Frahm has authored several books, including Babylonian and Assyrian Text Commentaries: Origins of Interpretation. He is currently in the process of creating an online portal that provides key information and full editions of these commentaries.
We talk with Eckart Frahm about the psychohistory of an Assyrian king.
