Hittite Cult Inventories – Part One: The Hittite Cult Inventories as Textual Genre
The Hittite cult inventories constitute a corpus of ca. 550 fragments dating to the Late Empire period, dealing with offerings and festivals in provincial towns. Due to their nature as local reports, they display great variability both in content and in layout, a fact which may raise ambiguities with other textual genres. The paper argues for a clear-cut demarcation between ‘cult inventories’ and ‘festival texts’, based on the analysis of their colophons and incipits as well as on the identification of special features, which are peculiar to each of these genres. This facilitates the attribution of fragmentary texts and aims to define a boundary between textual genres which seem to have existed already in ancient times. The proposed definition is tested through a discussion of uncertain and significant cases and through an extensive revision of the current attribution of these fragments within the Catalogue des Textes Hittites.
