Theophilus G. Pinches, The Religion of Babylonia and Assyria [Religia Babilonii i Asyrii], tr. and comm. Wojciech Kosior, Katowice 2015.
Theophilus G. Pinches was a jurist and an owner of a engraving business who at an early stage of his life became interested in cuneiform script and started working in the British Museum, where he helped to decipher and catalogue the Mesopotamian tablets. The result of his studies have been presented in several books and from among them The Religion… constitutes a concise and accessible introduction to the subject. Although much of its content turned obsolete, the book witnesses to the beginnings of the academic study of the religions of the Ancient Near East and its influence on the modern understanding of the Abrahamic religions. The matter is so important that, as Pinches himself puts it: "no student of modern religious systems can afford to neglect [it]". The present edition supplemented by illustrations, elaborate commentary and the links to the source texts aims to fulfill the author's postulate.
