Textile Terminologies in the Ancient Near East and Mediterranean from the Third to the First millennia BC

The papers in this volume derive from the conference on textile terminology held in June 2014 at the University of Copenhagen.

Around 50 experts from the fields of Ancient History, Indo-European Studies, Semitic Philology, Assyriology, Classical Archaeology, and Terminology from twelve different countries came together at the Centre for Textile Research, to discuss textile terminology, semantic fields of clothing and technology, loan words, and developments of textile terms in Antiquity.

They exchanged ideas, research results, and presented various views and methods.

This volume contains 35 chapters, divided into five sections:

  • Textile terminologies across the ancient Near East and the Southern Levant
  • Textile terminologies in Europe and Egypt
  • Textile terminologies in metaphorical language and poetry
  • Textile terminologies: examples from China and Japan
  • Technical terms of textiles and textile tools and methodologies of classifications.
