The Sumerian Civilization

Gilgamesh

The one who saw all [Sha nagba imuru ]I will declare to the world,
The one who knew all I will tell about
[line missing]
He saw the great Mystery, he knew the Hidden:
He recovered the knowledge of all the times before the Flood.
He journeyed beyond the distant, he journeyed beyond exhaustion,
And then carved his story on stone.

Religion

It was thought that the Netherworld could be entered through various openings in this world. These openings would allow one to enter through a series of seven steps downward into the land ruled by Ereshkigal, and populated not only by spirits of the dead, but also with her demons. One of these entrances could be found in Inanna’s holy city, Erech.
