Sumerian Mythology By Samuel Noah Kramer

Sumerian Mythology

Samuel Noah Kramer


Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 137 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1944 (copyright wasn't renewed).

Description

The Sumerians were a non-Semitic, non-Indo-European people who lived in southern Babylonia from 4000-3000 B.C.E. They invented cunieform writing, and their spiritual beliefs influenced all successive Near Eastern religions, including Judaism, Christianity and Islam. They produced an extensive body of literature, among the oldest in the world. Samuel Noah Kramer spent most of his life studying this literature, by piecing together clay tablets in far-flung museums. This short work gives translations or summaries of the most important Sumerian myths.
