Kurzbeschreibung

7. November 2007
Book Description:

"This is L.W. Kings' authoritative work on the Enuma Elish, the Babylonian creation myth. This text includes the complete introduction, and the English text of the Enuma Elish and other related texts, with selected footnotes. The Enuma Elish is the earliest written creation myth, in which the God Marduk battles the chaos Goddess Tiamat and her evil minions. The name 'Enuma Elish' is derived from the first two words of the myth, meaning 'When in the Height'. Tiamat takes the form of a gigantic snake, and Marduk battles and defeats her using an arsenal of super-weapons. After his victory Marduk is made the leader of the Gods by acclamation. Marduk divides Tiamat's corpse into two portions, the upper half becoming the sky and the lower half, the earth. Marduk then creates humanity from his blood and bone.

The Enuma Elish has long been considered by scholars to be primary source material for the book of Genesis. It has also been hypothesized that this is a legend about the overthrow of the matriarchy or records of some cosmic catastrophe." (Quote from sacred-texts.com)

5.0 von 5 Sternen merits comparative study with all religions 26. Oktober 2009

This book is an account of the faith by the ancient Babylonians. It is at time frustrating that many pieces of the text have been lost. However, it seems to me that the translators did a good job of restoring major parts of tablets through comparison with other texts. They indicate to the reader using parentheses when they have filled in the gaps.

I was particularly interested in comparing them with ancient Gnostic texts, Greek mythology and the Hebrew scriptures. In the foreward, a particulaly interesting observation was made, that humankind was created as a solution to a problem:that of redeeming the gods.

The creator, Marduk, sacrificed his own spirit and being into the being of man to appease arrogant and jealous gods who wanted to have a lower being to serve and worship them. However,Marduk knew that since humans possessed his spirit, they would eventually evolve the power to overthrow or redeem these lesser gods.

It seemed to me there was some correlation with the Greek gods who needed humankind for service to them. It also explains why the gnostics were often ambiguous about the Old Testament God. Regardless of one's faith, it seems to point to the primary aim of our Creator as that of evolving our consciousness.

It is also interesting to note that anthroposophists consider Marduk to be the archangel Michael.
