Wyatt (ancient Near East religions, U. of Edinburgh) assembles 15 essays otherwise available only in journals and conference proceedings. He has standardized the formats, corrected some spelling errors, updated some Hebrew and Ugaritic translations in light of his subsequent work, changed references to a chapter number when one essay refers to another in the volume, translated one essay from the French and slightly extended it, and compiled all the references into a common bibliography. His topics include an ideological motif in the story of Solomon's birth, the theogeny motif in Ugaritic and the Bible, some mythical and ritual aspects of West Semitic kingship, and an everyday story of royal folk.
