Welcome to the Temple of Sumer, a resource for those interested in learning about the religion and myths of the Sumerian peoples. We will be bringing you all and any information that you might need in order to understand the myths, and reconstruct the religion.
Sometimes, old stories are best told through new media. To that end, we are pleased to present Dingir Comic, Adventure of the Gods, a webcomic based in Sumerian myths.
In our books section you will find reviews of the best books on the Ancient Near East along with books to avoid and why. We will be paying particular attention to how useful the books are to both the beginning and advanced student.
In our myth section you will see our modern English versions of the myths. We will be bringing you an easy to understand version of the myths without losing the meanings and implications that were put there by the peoples of the Ancient Near East.
Over in our religion section you will find information on how you as a Sumerian Reconstructionist can help bring an ancient religion back to life. We will tell you about the morals, beliefs, and practices of ancient and modern Sumerian practitioners.
In our biblical section we will be showing some of the places where the bible gets some of its most popular ancient myths. We will show how some traditions and customs are far older than once suspected, and we will explain why people do what they do.
Our links section provides on line resources where you might find electronic resources such as the ETCSL from Oxford university, and an on line Lexicon of the Sumerian language. Also in here you will find links to message boards and other resources where Sumerians and other Reconstructionists get together.
Community is important for every religion, so we will be adding resources to allow people from distant lands to get together. We hope to eventually make a message board, and an off line place of worship, but for now enjoy our guest book and feel free to send one of us an Email.
Sorry, but the Guestbook is temporarily offline.
