Language: English . Brand New Book. Prior studies of incubation have approached it from a history of religions perspective, with a view to historically reconstruct the actual practice of incubation in ancient Near East. However, this approach has proven unfruitful, not due to the dearth of relevant data, but because of the confusion with regard to the definition of the term incubation. Suggesting a way out of this impasse in previous scholarship, this book proposes to read the so-called incubation texts from the perspective of incubation as a literary device, namely, as a type-scene. It applies Nagler s definition of a type-scene to a literary analysis of two Ugaritic mythical texts, the Aqhatu and Kirta stories, and one biblical story, the Hannah story.

Synopsis : This book proposes to read the birth stories of Aqhatu, Kirta and Samuel from the perspective of incubation type-scene. Drawing on Naglers definition of a type-scene, it employs the idea of family resemblance as a principle of identification of type-scenes.
