Sumerian Pantheon Research

“Traces of the Sumerian religion survive today and are reflected in writings of the Bible. As late as Ezekiel, there is mention of a Sumerian deity. In Ezekiel 8:14, the prophet sees women of Israel weeping for Tammuz (Damuzi) during a drought. The bulk of parallels, however, can be found much earlier in the book of Genesis.

The second chapter of Genesis introduces the paradise, Eden, a place which is similar to the Sumerian Dilmun, described in The Myth of Enki and Ninhursag.”
