Post by sheshki on Aug 4, They do not appear before the Old Babylonian period and are only mentioned in literary texts. There is no indication of an actual cult, although the Igigi occasionally occur in personal names. The origin and even the function of the Igigi in mythological texts is still unclear and so is their relationship with the Anunnaki. While the two terms were often used synonymously, the Igigi could also be contrasted with the Anunnaki—as, for instance, in Atra-hasis see Floodmyths , where the Igigi are said to have been burdened with labour for the gods by the Anunnaki. After forty days they rebelled by burning their tools, which led to the creation of man to take over their work. A general distinction between chthonic Igigi and celestial Anunnaki may be discernible in some texts but was certainly not consistent. It is found among the earliest written records from Uruk. Otherwise the sources of the pre-Sargonic period do not indicate a very widespread veneration of the goddess. She is invoked in only few personal names and does not appear to be a recipient of frequent offerings.
The proper dates of Dynasty I of Ur are those of the Nippur list, which gives the total as — Reference to three kings is made, but only a cuneiform remnant of the last king’s name is preserved: The total length of the Dynasty is years — The date of the last king is therefore Historically the date marks Elamite prominence in Southern Mesopotamia and throws important light on the early history of India.

The history of the historical significance of the Sumerian language: Many of those who attack the veracity of the Bible believe the Sumerian language to be the oldest written language in existence. First attested about BCE in southern Mesopotamia, it flourished during the 3rd millennium. Sumerian never extended much beyond its original boundaries in southern Mesopotamia; the small number of its native speakers was entirely out of proportion to the tremendous importance and influence Sumerian exercised on the development of the Mesopotamian and other ancient civilizations in all their stages.
According to most secular sources, the Sumerian language is the earliest known written language. In this period, records are purely logographic, with no linguistic or phonological content Wikepedia, Because secular scholars give little or no weight to biblical sources, they just ignore the evidence from the Bible entirely. In truth, no one actually knows what the original language of man was. Because most philologists are heavily indoctrinated into the Darwinian worldview, they cannot accept the biblical revelation as being authentic.
For this reason, these scholars reject the evidence concerning the origination of all language as revealed in Genesis chapter ten, e. It is important to realize that the ancient Hebrew, the language of the Jewish people and the language of the Tanakh, is at least as old as ancient Sumerian. While secular scholars believe Hebrew developed along side of some other ancient languages and dialects, it does not mean that the ancient Hebrew came from, or was predated by, other languages.

On the Astronomical Records and Babylonian Chronology
Tell Asmar votive sculpture B. C It is not surprising that the religious beliefs of the Sumerians changed during the long period of their history. Man was created in the image of God because the gods themselves were men. But the conception cannot be traced back further than the age when the Sumerians and Semites came into contact with one another. In pre-Semitic Sumer there are no anthropomorphic gods. We hear, instead, of the zi or ‘spirit’, a word properly signifying ‘life’ which manifested itself in the power of motion.
It was first published in by Henry Creswicke Rawlinson and George Smith as Enuma Anu Enlil Tablet 63, in “Tablet of Movements of the Planet Venus and their Influences” (The Cuneiform Inscriptions of Western Asia, volume III).Size: Length: cm ( in), Width: cm ( in), Thickness: cm ( in).
The major groupings are the Old, Middle and New Kingdoms. Then came an alleged Late Period which spanned dynasties 26— From this time c. The Abydos King List As mentioned earlier, there are a few detailed lists of the pharaohs that ruled Egypt. It is the only source we have regarding the names of some pharaohs that allegedly existed, which makes it disparate with other lists on that point alone.
Secular scholars readily admit that this list is inaccurate and contains many errors.

This article provides a state-of-the-art appraisal of ancient Near Eastern chronologies in Mesopotamia and Egypt. It focuses on recent developments in both fields by assessing the current astronomical and historical bases for these chronologies and addressing the relative nature of chronology before the second millennium B.
It documents the trend over the past sixty years to shorten the historical chronology of the Near East. This causes a widening gap between historical dates and the most recent data from 14C samples.
Ur, one of the first cities in ancient Sumer. Ur, one of the first cities in ancient Sumer. Book III) Thousands of years ago, the Earth was a battlefield. These were the wars that would shape man’s destiny – terrible conflicts that begin lifetimes earlier on another planet.” “At the beginning of architecture, mimicking nature is the.
Law and History Isin and Larsa: In many localities an urge was felt to imitate the model of Ur; Isin probably took over unchanged the administrative system of that state. Ishbi-Erra and his successors had themselves deified, as did one of the rulers of Der, on the Iranian border. For almost a century Isin predominated within the mosaic of states that were slowly reemerging. Overseas trade revived after Ishbi-Erra had driven out the Elamite garrison from Ur, and under his successor, Shu-ilishu, a statue of the moon god Nanna, the city god of Ur, was recovered from the Elamites, who had carried it off.
Up to the reign of Lipit-Ishtar c. As a further example of continuity it might be added that the Code of Lipit-Ishtar stands exactly midway chronologically between the Code of Ur-Nammu and the Code of Hammurabi. Yet it is much closer to the former in language and especially in legal philosophy than to Hammurabi’s compilation of judgments. For example, the Code of Lipit-Ishtar does not know the lex talionis “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”, the guiding principle of Hammurabi’s penal law.
These usurpations were regularly carried out as part of the respective tribes became settled, although this was not so in the case of Isin because the house of Ishbi-Erra came from Mari and was of Akkadian origin, to judge by the rulers’ names.
Not every obscuration or darkening of the Sun necessarily implies a solar eclipse. In some cases, a darkening of the Sun that was first interpreted as a solar eclipse is now believed to have been caused by a meteorological phenomenon. Of these reports, the chronologically most important are the following:
the Dynasty of Ur III; it is generally thought to mark the end of the reign of Shulgi. The eclipse takes place on the 14 th day of the 3 rd month, beginning in the rst watch in the east, and ending in the west at the beginning of the second watch.

It is believed that this astronomical record was first compiled during the reign of King Ammisaduqa or Ammizaduga , the fourth ruler after Hammurabi. Thus, the origins of this text should probably be dated to around the mid-seventeenth century B. The tablet recorded the rise times of Venus and its first and last visibility on the horizon before or after sunrise and sunset the heliacal risings and settings of Venus in the form of lunar dates.
These observations are recorded for a period of 21 years. The earliest copy of this tablet to be published, a 7th-century BC cuneiform , part of the British Museum collections, was recovered from the library at Nineveh.
