The Hittite Culture is the most ancient documented Indo-European culture. The course will provide general insight into the history and culture of pre-Greek Anatolia, and a basic knowledge of the language of the Hittites (introductory references will be made to the philology of the Cuneiform writing system). The knowledge that will be acquired is especially relevant for the students interested in the history, the languages and the philologies of the ancient Mediterranean regions.
The course will focus on the main topics that regard the history, the development and the decline of the Hittite culture, through an introduction to the Hittite grammar and through the reading of a few simple texts from the Hittite corpus.
