Abstract
This article surveys scholarship and inquiry in ancient Mesopotamia from the middle of the second millennium BCE until the Common Era. After an overview of the source material, the article explores scribal authority, the organization of their textual materials, their interpretive practices, and epistemology. The conclusion offers thoughts about current debates and the trajectory of future studies.
