In the summer of 2015 the Yale’s Cuneiform Commentaries Project (CCP) directed by Professor Eckart Frahm was awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to prepare the online publication of an edition and translation of 878 extant Mesopotamian cuneiform tablets, together with a print translation of selected commentaries on scientific texts.

Professor Frahm launched this project with the purpose of making a cohesive corpus of Mesopotamian commentaries available online for the scholarly community and the general audience. To achieve this goal the CCP provides background information on the genre, a searchable catalog, as well as photos, drawings, annotated editions, and translations of individual commentary tablets.
