Babylon-Bible, or the recurring theomachy
Streck discusses the cultural "warfare" connected with the antagonism of Judaeo-Christian "righteousness" as opposed to the image of Babylon as the negative cultural entity (the Bible vs. Babylon), a fight that took place and still takes place! with the rise of Old Oriental Studies in the 19th century, led by the Saxonian orientalists Friedrich Delitzsch and Hugo Winckler, specialists on Mesopotamia.
