    Description

    If you're looking for a captivating collection of Sumerian myths, then pay attention!

    This audiobook includes tales of gods and goddesses, both major and minor, as well as kings and heroes, both historical and mythical. One such king is the hero of what many scholars believe to be the first written epic: Gilgamesh. 

    In addition to creating connections between the human world and the divine, Sumerian myths explain how the world came to be in the first place. These myths establish the cosmic order, which places the greater gods, or Annunaki, at the top of the hierarchy, with the lesser gods, or Igigi, below them.

    Heroic strength capable of bringing mountains to their knees is the province of both male and female deities in Sumerian myth. The god Ninurta does battle with the evil Asag and rearranges the mountains to allow the Tigris and Euphrates to flow while the goddess Inanna brings down Mount Ebih in revenge for the mountain’s refusal to do the goddess reverence.

    In Sumerian Mythology: Captivating Myths of Gods, Goddesses, and Legendary Creatures of Ancient Sumer and Their Importance to the Sumerians, you'll find the following Sumerian myths and topics covered:

    • Tales of Gods and Goddesses
    • Tales of Kings and Heroes
    • Inanna and the Huluppu Tree
    • Enkidu in the Underworld
    • Gilgamesh and Huwawa
    • Gilgamesh and Aga
    • And much, much more!

    inaccurate

    inaccurate information....to give one example; enlil was not first born to king Anu. prine Enki was. enlil was rightful heir to the kingship because of his mothers mitochondrial blood line. Half brothers. enki was born from a concubine, however was first born.

    Incredible

    A must for anyone interested in Biblical origins, and the general mythological climate of the Ancient Near East. Nicely laid out, artistic look and feel, so one sees the poetic nature of the myths. Excellent resource.

    Really Captivating

    The Sumerians produced the first civilization, and we still use tools, mathematics, etc., created by them. Their impact directly affected Mesopotamia even as they were defeated by others.
