I started with the Bromze Age and I'm having fun. Still studying sumerians, don't feel ready for egyptians or semites yet.
I'm hyped for the greeks, but first things first.
Gilgamesh will forever live in my heart.

      I only care about the Middle East Bronze Age because that's where civilization comes from. My goal is to gather knowledge of sumerian, egyptian and semitic knowledge. Study the Bible, study the sumerian myths, study the Avesta. Someday I will study the greeks, the hermetics, the romans and the gnostics. But first it's the sumerians.

      I mean you know Gilgamesh is Semitic though right? Like it was literally written in Old Babylonian?
      The sad truth that I discovered recently is that there are very, very few actual pre-Sargonic Sumerian literary texts. It's pretty hard to find things that can be known with certainty to be an expression of authentic Sumerian culture and religion, rather than an Akkadian or Babylonian take on it.

      Why do you say that? I do kinda agree in that one of the most powerful parts of Homer is taken from it.

        Not true, the most acient parts were written in sumerian. The babylonian texts are the best conserved parts, I give you that.

        Roughly zero percent of Homer is taken from Gilgamesh. You see what you want to see.

          It's not to be known with certainty of course, but the idea of it being otherwise stretches credibility.

          Hes a king of a Sumerian city.
          This is pre - babylon anything.
          It's wrong to say he was not sumerian.
          So you are wrong.

          >Most historians generally agree that Gilgamesh was a historical king of the Sumerian city-state of Uruk,[17][18][19][20] who probably ruled sometime during the early part of the Early Dynastic Period (c. 2900 – 2350 BC).[17][18] Stephanie Dalley, a scholar of the ancient Near East, states that "precise dates cannot be given for the lifetime of Gilgamesh, but they are generally agreed to lie between 2800 and 2500 BC".[18] An inscription, possibly belonging to a contemporary official under Gilgamesh, was discovered in the archaic texts at Ur;[21] his name reads: "Gilgameš is the one whom Utu has selected". Aside from this the Tummal Inscription, a thirty-four-line historiographic text written during the reign of Ishbi-Erra (c.1953 – c.1920 BC), also mentions him.[19] The inscription credits Gilgamesh with building the walls of Uruk.[22] Lines eleven through fifteen of the inscription read:

          >For a second time, the Tummal fell into ruin,
          Gilgamesh built the Numunburra of the House of Enlil.
          Ur-lugal, the son of Gilgamesh,
          Made the Tummal pre-eminent,
          Brought Ninlil to the Tummal.[23]

          >Gilgamesh is also connected to King Enmebaragesi of Kish, a known historical figure who may have lived near Gilgamesh's lifetime.[22] Furthermore, he is listed as one of the kings of Uruk by the Sumerian King List.[22] Fragments of an epic text found in Mê-Turan (modern Tell Haddad) relate that upon his death Gilgamesh was buried under the river bed,[22] and the workmen of Uruk temporarily diverted the flow of the Euphrates for this purpose.[
          So this is like a millenia before babylon.
          They didn't even know about the future babylonian empire.
          It's like saying the middle kingdom Egyptians knew about rome,when rome was not a thing until a couple of millenia later.
          So "Gilgamesh" was a sumerian Urukian/Uruk king or ruler.

          I mean it's "Sumerian" to the same extent that Metamorphoses is "Greek" (ok maybe it's more like a translation of the original Gilgamesh texts in some parts, idk, but even those original Gilgamesh texts are not necessarily pre-Sargonic). I see that my post was phrased confusingly, sorry, of course the character/historical figure is Sumerian. I just meant to offer a disclaimer that you might not be getting an unobstructed look into the actual Sumerian worldview.

            I don't see anything in the epic that necessarily reflects the "Babylonian worldview" though.
            In fact i see more of a "Sumerian worldview" than a "Babylonian one".
            It dosen't talk or mention the things Babylon is famous for, like astronomy, instead it talks about a mythology of the dead, and creation of civilization with enkidu.
            So i don't see how that's "babylonian" when that reflects to me more, "early sumer/ia" than it does the later civilization of Babylon.

            It's far better than nothing, I'm just saying we don't know how that particular version might or might not be skewed to reflect changing sensibilities. The Sumerian texts (not necessarily all that much earlier mind you, Sumerian was still being used as a literary language up until after the time of our earliest Akkadian Gilgamesh versions) give us the death of Gilgamesh, the netherworld, the presence of Enkidu although not his introduction, the Bull of Heaven (though G's conflict with the goddess seems to have a different genesis here), and Humbaba. The stuff about Enkidu's civilizing and Gilgamesh's search for immortality is not known to be there, though it certainly could have been.

    Egyptian Stuff is very gay with some stuff, I will warn you of that, I would say it's gayer than Gilgamesh can be portrayed by a long shot. But there is a lot of really fun stories from Egyptian Mythology.
