This book examines a collection of twenty-two literary letters and related compositions - the Sumerian Epistolary Miscellany (SEpM) - studied as part of the Old Babylonian Sumerian scribal curriculum, in an attempt to better understand the education system at this time. The author includes discussion of the nature of the letters as scribal inventions, the pedagogical function of literary letters and compilation tablets, as well as the creation, implementation and consistency of the advanced Sumerian scribal curriculum. The volume also contains critical editions of SEpM as well as ancillary Sumerian letters studied in the Nippur schools, the majority of which were previously unpublished. (source: Nielsen Book Data)

The papers published here were presented at an international symposium held in 2002 at Heidelberg, at which international experts investigated the literary output at the end of the 14th century and at the beginning of the 15th of the first three universities founded within the medieval Holy Roman Empire north of the Alps: Prague, Vienna and Heidelberg. The articles provide insights into a great variety of academic texts till now rarely examined and the specific conditions of their production, and trace the interrelations between these universities which were narrowly interlinked by many itinerant teachers and scholars. The papers deal with the scholarly Latin texts, which often originated directly from teaching, as well as the vernacular texts stimulated or influenced by academic learning in the practice fields of preaching, religious doctrine, edification, pastoral theology, and general popularizing of scholarship.
