Bookshelf: Gregorio del Olmo Lete
Before I leave Ugarit, I have to recommend another book on the subject. Gregorio del Olmo Lete's book reconstructing Ugaritic religion from its texts is not as easy to read or as accessible as Smith's work, but it has the great virtue of including lots of translated texts. This makes it easier for us (bearing in mind the difficulty of translation) to make our own judgments as to what the folks at Ras Shamra were up to.
