Book Description

This book examines the Babylonian background of melothesia, the science of charting zodiac influences on the human body, which transformed older divination by connecting astrology with medical techniques.  Special attention is given to a text from late-5th-century Uruk, which is argued to be an important representative of this new approach to the healing arts, previously only known from Greek and medieval astrology.
