The Creation-Story of Genesis I

Sumerian Theogony and Cosmogony
Series: Analecta Gorgiana 174
ISBN: 978-1-60724-245-1
In this brief study of the creation account in Genesis 1, Radau makes full use of the Sumerian materials available in his day. Summarizing the sea monster versus deity scenario known from the Enuma Elish’s account of Marduk against Tiamat, he shows how Yahweh fits this role in Genesis 1. Going into linguistic detail of the Hebrew and Sumerian sources, he draws a set of correlations between the two.
