About the Author

Ben H.L. van Gessel worked from 1958 until 1996 at the Fons Vitae Lyceum in Amsterdam, teaching ancient Greek and Latin, to become headmaster in 1968. Throughout those years he also devoted much of his time to studying Hittite texts.


'...van Gessel's book is one of the main auxiliary materials for further research. Presently nobody can do without it when being concerned with Anatolian religions in the second millennium BCE because - as in a generalistic way during the founding period of Religionswissenschaft - philological and historical research are still the basic prerogatives for studying Anatolian religions.'
Manfred Hutter, Numen, 1999.
'The author must have devoted a tremendous amount of time to compile these magnificent volumes, for which he deserves the thanks and congratulations of every Hittitologist.'
Edgar G. Polomé, The Journal of Indo-European Studies, 1999.
'Das Werk wird sich auch für den religionsgeschichtlich arbeitenden Alttestamentler als nutzliches Hilfsmittel erwisen.'
H. Pfeiffer, Zeitschrift für die Alttestamentliche Wissenschaft.
'…we must be grateful to van Gessel for providing us with this thorough, accurate, and useful compilation that for many years will be a basic research tool for Hittologists and all those interested in the Anatolian pantheon of the second millennium B.C.
'Giuseppe F. del Monte, Journal of the American Oriental Society, 1999.
'Its author has earned our congratulations and our gratitude. This compendium should find a place on the desk of all Hittitologists and on the shelves of every research library for biblical, classical, and cuneiform studies.'
Gary Beckman, Journal of Biblical Literature, 1999.
