Many of the Urartian inscriptions contain references to the ritual praxis of the Urartians. These inscriptions deal with the foundation of cities, fortresses or agricultural projects. According to the texts, many ritual activities had been prescribed step by step, when a part of an establishment was finished. Many of them refer to the yearly agricultural activities or the calendar, e.g. the budding or harvesting. There are phrases in these ritual contexts furthermore, which are opposed to each other, e.g. “deserted”, “inhabited” or “enemy”, “own”. The study compares the ritual processes that are attached to the meaning of different ritual transitions and binary opposites.
