520    This anthology brought together the most important 
       historical, legal, mythological, liturgical, and secular 
       texts of the ancient Near East, with the purpose of 
       providing a rich contextual base for understanding the 
       people, cultures, and literature of the Old Testament. A 
       scholar of religious thought and biblical archaeology, 
       James Pritchard recruited the foremost linguists, 
       historians, and archaeologists to select and translate the
       texts. The goal, in his words, was "a better understanding
       of the likenesses and differences which existed between 
       Israel and the surrounding cultures." Before the 
       publication of these volumes, students of the Old 
       Testament found themselves having to search out scattered 
       books and journals in various languages. This anthology 
       brought these invaluable documents together, in one place 
       and in one language, thereby expanding the meaning and 
       significance of the Bible for generations of students and 
       readers. As one reviewer put it, "This great volume is one
       of the most notable to have appeared in the field of Old 
       Testament scholarship this century." Princeton published a
       follow-up companion volume, The Ancient Near East in 
       Pictures Relating to the Old Testament (1954), and later a
       one-volume abridgment of the two, The Ancient Near East: 
       An Anthology of Texts and Pictures (1958). The continued 
       popularity of this work in its various forms demonstrates 
       that anthologies have a very important role to play in 
       education--and in the mission of a university press.
