This collection of essays is intended to explore the development of celestial omens in Mesopotamia, their relationship to the astrology developed in the Hellenistic period by the Greeks, and the spread of astrology to the East and its amplification there. In these studies I have attempted to illustrate the incredible facility with which these sciences, which serve as an example for other systems of knowledge, were transmitted from one culture to another, and to indicate a few ways in which the recipient cultures changed the received theories. I have and will write more extensively elsewhere about the technical transformations that accompanied the transmissions.
