Pre-Inanna’s Creation Myth

Geographical Backdrop of Sumer


Sumer is the earliest known civilisation, located in the historical region of southern Mesopotamia, now south-central Iraq.


Sumeria flourished between c. 4100-1750 BCE.


The civilisation grew up along the banks of two great rivers, the Euphrates and the Tigris.


Living along the fertile valleys of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, Sumerian farmers grew an abundance of grain and other crops, a surplus that enabled them to form urban settlements.


Astrology in Sumeria


As far as we know the Sumerians were the first to study the actions of planets, stars, and the Moon, recognising styles and their correlation with earthly occasions.


The Sumerians believed celestial bodies were divine entities influencing human destiny and earthly affairs.


The Sumerians knew of seven objects in the heavens because they were bright enough to be easily visible to the naked eye:


1. Sun

2. Moon

3. Mercury

4. Venus

5. Mars

6. Jupiter

7. Saturn


Uranus was the next planet to be discovered, 5000 years later in 1781 with a telescope.
