Enuma elish

Enuma Elish is the name of Tiamat’s epic. “In a Babylonian epic, a male divinity, Marduk, overpowers the original female divinity, Tiamat, and becomes the new ruler of the universe”(Lishtar). Tiamat has many children who are younger gods. These children feared their mother’s power and felt she had to be eliminated, so they called upon a hero, one of her grandchildren, Marduk. Tiamat and Marduk wage in battle, and Marduk comes out victorious by forcing Tiamat to swallow the winds he threw at her. While the winds distracted her, Marduk cut out her heart and crushed her skull. “Tiamat´s body fell into the lower universe; one half became the dome of heaven, her eyes became the sources of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers”(Lishtar).

Culture

At the beginning of every year in Babylon, Enuma Elish was made into a drama and was played at the New Year Festival, which began the autumn season. This was a stern holiday that enforced life, order, and determination in the universe. This myth was not only there for entertainment, but for religious reasons as well. In Babylonia, there is a temple made for the hero, Marduk, for defeating chaos (Rosenberg).

Links to Myths

The story of the Canaanite people closely relates to the story of Tiamat and Marduk. Actually these two stories are almost exactly the same. The only two differences lie in the names and ending (Doty).

Another myth of creation is one of the Zoroastrian myths. This myth is a battle between the forces of light and darkness. Light and Justice are played by Spenta while Destruction and Evil are played by his brother Ahriman. This begins the eternal battle for mankind. This battle is still waging (Doty).

Links to Today

Today, many young people have started exclusive bands named after Tiamat.

Tehom which means “The Deep”, is derived from Tiamat and found at the beginning of Genesis.
