Sarkhan Nabiyev Thought Paper One 1/25/16 Word Count: 793 words Question: What is the character and functions of deity in Genesis 1-2 and Enuma Elish? That is, what is God/are the gods like? Unraveling and chaotic atmosphere with destructive waters, as described in the beginning of the story, Enuma Elish describes the world and the seasons that come with it. Enuma Elish focuses on the beginnings of gods and how they all were created with a specific job. The reason why this story was so impactful is because it was written on seven stone tablets by the famous Babylonians created in the late 12th century B.C.
The major sites of pilgrimage are the tombs of Rabbis buried around the country. The most popular are Rabbi Yehouda Benatar in Fes, Rabbi Chaim Pinto in El Jadida and Rabbi Amram Ben Diwane in Ouezzan.

Both Mesopotamian and Egyptian religion was polytheistic (belief in many gods), and the religion was an important part of their life. Gods in Mesopotamia and Egypt were identified with forces of nature. Both Mesopotamian and Egyptian civilians believed in afterlife and buried tools with a dead body. Both civilizations created a new system of numbers; based on sixty in Mesopotamia and ten in Egypt. Both Mesopotamia and Egypt developed their own writing system to keep records and to share the knowledge (Cuneiform and Hieroglyphics).
If one did not know that Maimonides was the name of a man, Abraham Joshua Heschel wrote, one would assume it was the name of a university. The writings and achievements of this twelfthcentury Jewish sage seem to cover an impossibly large number of activities. Maimonides was the first person to write a systematic code of all Jewish law, the Mishneh Torah; he produced one of the great philosophic statements of Judaism, The Guide to the Perplexed; published a commentary on the entire Mishna; served as physician to the sultan of Egypt; wrote numerous books on medicine; and, in his "spare time," served as leader of Cairo 's Jewish community. It is hardly surprising that when Shmuel ibn Tibbon, the Hebrew translator of The Guide to the Perplexed
Marquise Aamon in demonology is a high ranking marquis (Nobleman ranks below a duke) who governs forty infernal legions (80,000). Aamon a grand ruler demon is a grand Marquis of hell showing him as a great ruler. In the Goetia, he is the seventh spirit of the seventy-two trapped by King Solomon.

The constellation I have chosen is Scorpio because it is one of the 12 Zodiac signs that I truly appreciate. Scorpio 's name comes from the Greek word "skorpios" which is rumored to come from a Hebrew word. Like I previously said, Scorpio is one of the 12 Zodiac signs. You can see it between October 23rd and November 21st, which is why the people born between those dates are considered Scorpios. Now, let 's talk about the myth behind it!
Around 200 BC the Jewish people in Jerusalem were living under Egyptian rule though they remain largely free to work and worship in accordance to their customs.

The most common in those who practice circumcision has been Abrahamic religions as seen throughout history. Egyptian mummies and those in the near East have also been found to be circumcised. The findings of other peoples other than Jewish and certain sects of religious groups show that it’s not just purely religious.

In this presentation I will discuss each of these objects which are linked through the macabre theme of death. The Hagia Triada sarcophagus is a late Bronze Age limestone sarcophagus. Its original date was 1400 BC and was rediscovered in Hagia Triada on Crete in 1903. It gives us the most comprehensive iconography of a pre-Homeric thysiastikis ceremony and one of the best pieces of information on noble burial customs when Crete was under Mycenaean rule. The sarcophagus is on display in the Heraklion Archaeological Museum, one of the most important archaeological museums, in Greece.
Its originality can be seen in the in scription of the map and accurate orientation. In ancient Greece, even if Homer was n ot a mapmaker, his geographical descriptions in Iliad and Odyssey almost made readers to regard him as a master cartographer. Hesiod’s poems written probably durin g the 8th century BCE gave the statement of the ancient geography. Through the lyr ics of Works and Days and Theogony he showed to scholars of his generation some defin ite geographical knowledge. He introduced the names of such rivers a s Nile, Ister (Danube), few other coasts, islands, shores and regions.

Battle Sarcophagus, A.D. 190, symbolizes Greek power.
Guided Art Tour: Ancient Near East and Egypt The “Queen of the Night” relief, 1800-1750 B.C.E., Old Babylonian, Baked straw-tempered clay, 49 x 37 x 4.8 cm, Southern Iraq. The “Queen of the Night” relief, also known as “The Burney” relief, is a large plaque that “most likely” originated from Southern Iraq.

The relief of this plaque represents a goddess supported by two lions, and wedged between two standing owls. The reason why this nude female figure represents a goddess is due to the ringed rods held on each hand, the horned headdress,
