Project A01

Episteme as Configurative Process: Episteme between Theory and Practice in Cuneiform Law

Cuneiform law is documented through systematised collections of epistemic juridical knowledge, on the one hand, and documents pertaining to contemporary legal practise, on the other. The project investigates the relation between law collections and contemporaneous legal documents by way of two case studies dealing with the mid-third millennium ‘Reform Texts of Urukagina’ and the late-second millennium ‘Middle Assyrian Laws’, respectively, examining in how far historical contingency as well as formal and socio-political configurative processes determine the formation of systematised juridical knowledge.

A list of publications and events organized by the project can be accessed on the German CRC 980 website.
