Enuma Elish

by Micha F. Lindemans
The Semetic creation epic which describes the creation of the gods, the defeat of the powers of chaos by the young god Marduk, and the creation of man from the blood of Kingu, the defeated champion of chaos. The title is taken from the first words of the epic 'When on high' or 'When above', viz. "When a sky above had not been mentioned".
