Volume I of “The Devils And Evil Spirits Of Babylonia”, a 1903 work by Reginald C. Thompson that looks at the religion and spiritual beliefs of Babylon, the powerful kingdom in ancient Mesopotamia that existed from the 18th to 6th centuries BC. It includes English translations of various 'Evil Spirit Texts', which form large and important sections of the native literature concerning Babylonian and Assyrian demonology. Reginald Campbell Thompson (1876 – 1941) was a British archaeologist, cuneiformist, and assyriologist. He is famous for his work on excavations at Nineveh, Ur, Nebo and Carchemish. Other notable works by this author include: “The Devils and Evil Spirits of Babylonia” (1903–1904), “Semitic Magic: its Origins and Development” (1908), and “Archaeologia, Vol LXX” (1921). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
