        The object of this thesis is, as the title indicates, the typology and the evolution of the Neo-Assyrian and Neo-Babylonian temple structures, in the imperial capitals and the major provincial centers. I choose this subject because the archaeological literature has dealt only marginally the templar architecture of this period, usually only within works about the all Mesopotamian temple architecture, or even about the Mesopotamian architecture in general. It was defined a clear chronological period within which the temples was choose. So these are the temples that have been discovered, mostly, in the southern part (Babylon) and northern (Assyria) of Mesopotamia and dating back to the first millennium BC It is obvious that the main texts of reference were those written by the archaeologists who excavated the sites in question. For this reason it has been inevitable the analysis of different excavation reports and subsequent publications. Starting from this literature I have analyzed the temple architecture, not omitting, however, the historical context that has its own importance. In this work will be investigated a number of aspects of the temples. The layout of various temples will be studied and described in order to try to determine the elements or characteristics common and shared between them. Along with the layout of the buildings, the cult furnishings found in the temples will be studied, always with the aim of determining the common elements, and / or differences between the cult furniture of the various structures. The aim is to analyze the architecture of this period in relation to all the archaeological finds (decoration, inscriptions, objects and installations), as part of an organized space, with the goal of understanding the spatial organization and layout of the temples. In addition I would like to show that the temple in the first millennium BC is much more than just a place of worship. For this reason, in addition to chapters on the temples and their architecture, one will be dedicated to libraries and archives, and another to templar economy. The method of presentation will be as follows. The thesis is divided into eight chapters, plus the annexes and images. All these were then divided into two volumes; the first volume contains the eight chapters and the second for the annexes and the
