Synopsis

First published over a century ago, the "Suilla" ('Raised-Hand') prayers have received little close study. This book focuses on the hymnic introductions of these multipurpose prayers as theological texts in their own right. The introductory formulae of Suilla prayers seek to secure the deity's attention and favor, and lift the worshiper into the presence of one perceived capable of lending aid. Our study of selected Suillas to Ea, Marduk, and Nabu, begins with a survey of the entire prayer to ascertain the proportion of the prayer dedicated to the opening hymn, and proceeds to an outline of the hymnic section. Within the hymn, we observe the varied terms and phrases used to praise the deity and study their possible meanings in the context of the prayer and the interrelationship between the terms and phrases used and how they elucidate the 'thought flow' of the hymn. We also consider broader levels of relationships in the hymn by looking for thought development line by line and within the hymn as a whole. This approach yields insight into the ways in which these Suilla prayers were constructed and the theology which they communicate.
