This chapter examines the social change associated with the transition from the Third Dynasty of Ur to the Old Babylonian Kingdoms in ancient Mesopotamia during the period from c.2112 to 1595 BCE. It identifies certain key institutions at the time of the Third Dynasty of Ur and attempts to trace their evolution into Old Babylonian times. The analysis of the debt relief edicts and naditu priestesses reveals the discontinuities in the social and economic fabric of these two periods.

Keywords:   social change, Third Dynasty of Ur, Old Babylonian Kingdoms, ancient Mesopotamia, debt relief edicts, naditu priestesses
