Lilith’s connection to Inanna

21 Apr

this is Lilith or Lilitu. some scholars say this plaque  is really of Ishtar or Inanna. 

in my opinion is Lilith is to Inanna  as Kali is to Durga, and the Morrigan is to Macha or Badb.  and this plague is entitled the queen of the night. and that is Lilith’s title. 

it said that Lilith was originally an semitic goddess that was demonized by summerians later the babylonians.  she was worship by the akkaidians and the semitic tribes in arabia and  southern area of mesopotamia. then the akkaidians disappeared. and the semitic tribes were absorbed by the summerians. 

so when you think of Easter. it is not just Ishtar or Inanna that was worship on this day. it was their sister Lilith or Lilitu that was also. and Lilitu became the Hand of Inanna later on.

    Reblogged this on SuccubusLover and commented:
    The Burney Relief, also known as the “Queen of the Night” relief, is of great significance to anyone interested in the context of Lilith in the ancient Mesopotamian culture. I agree with Richards assessment that this terracotta carving depicts Lilith, or Lilitu, as she was known before Judaism reinvented her.

    The nude goddess being flanked by two owls is what convinces me that this piece is specific to Lilith and not just Inanna or Ishtar. Though as Richard mentions in his post, I also believe that Inanna/Ishtar are linked with Lilith/Lilitu.

    Also, the fact that she is carved with four sets of horns crowning her head is a good indicator that Lilith was of considerable status in the Akkadian pantheon.

    This is just my theory, but I feel that Lilith/Lilitu was demonized over time; starting with the Sumerians, then the Hebrews added her to their mythology, and today we have the modern Christian iteration we are all so familiar with.
