Overview

A Primer on Ugaritic is an introduction to the language of the ancient city of Ugarit, a city that flourished in the second millennium BCE on the Lebanese coast, placed in the context of the culture, literature, and religion of this ancient Semitic culture. The Ugaritic language and literature were a precursor to Canaanite and serve as our most important resources for understanding the Old Testament and the Hebrew language. Special emphasis is placed on the contextualization of the Ugartic language and comparison to ancient Hebrew as well as Akkadian.
