Originally printed in 1960, this book describes the conditions, the components, and the catalysts of culture in the ancient Near East, beginning with the Oriental Renaissance. Moscati (formerly Semitic studies, University of Rome) discusses the politics, society, religion and art of the Sumerians, Babylonians, Assyrians, Egyptians, Hittites, Hurrians, Canaanites, Armaeans, Israelites, and Persians. He also suggests a synthesis of these various cultures and considers the influence of such ancient civilizations on those that came later.
