Abstract: Hammurabi, the sixth king of the Amorite First Dynasty of Babylon, ruled from 1792 to 1750 BC. He secured Babylonian dominance over the Mesopotamian plain through military prowess, diplomacy, and treachery. This important Babylonian king is now universally known for a fundamental and surprisingly modern legal code that he promulgated for his subjects. The Code of Hammurabi is a Babylonian legal text composed during 1755-1750 BC. It is the longest, best-organized, and best-preserved legal text from the ancient Near East. It is written in Akkadian, purportedly by Hammurabi of Babylon. The primary copy of the text is inscribed on a basalt stele 2.25 m. tall discovered in 1901 at the site of Susa, today in the Louvre Museum, in Paris. We are glad to offert today to our readers the Code of Hammurabi translated into English by Leonard William King, with commentaries from Charles F. Horne, Ph.D. (1915), and Claude Hermann Walter Johns, M.A. Litt.D. (1910).

#318027 Storia Medioevo
Prato, Aurora Boreale 2022, cm.14,8x21, pp.54, brossura. Collana Symbols & Myths. Testo in Inglese The deepest historical, cultural and spiritual roots of Russian national identity can be found in an ancient kingdom known as Kievan Rus', a state that flourished from the end of the 9th to the middle of the 13th century over a vast geographical area including a large part of today's western Russia, Belarus and Ukraine, from the Baltic and White Seas in the north to the Black Sea coasts in the south. According to the Russian Primary Chronicle, the first ruler to start uniting East Slavic lands into what would become Kievan Rus' was Prince Oleg (879-912). He extended his control from Novgorod south along the Dnieper river valley to protect trade from Khazar incursions from the east, and took control of the city of Kiev. Sviatoslav I (943-972) achieved the first major expansion of Kievan Rus' territorial control, fighting a war of conquest against the Khazars. Vladimir the Great (980-1015) then introduced Christianity with his own baptism and, by decree, extended it to all inhabitants of Kiev and beyond. Kievan Rus' reached its greatest extent under Yaroslav the Wise (1019-1054); his sons assembled and issued its first written legal code, theRusskaya Pravda, shortly after his death.
