What are the correspondences between Sumerian religion and Judaism?
Question by Darth Seditious: What are the correspondences between Sumerian religion and Judaism?
I am doing research on the similarities between Sumerian religion and Judaism. One of the things I am looking at is to see if possibly some of the gods became angels in Judaism. Is there any “paganism” that Judaism inherited from the Sumerian religion?
Answer by Sarah
No. Judaism is inherently monotheistic. Angels do not have any power except as God’s servants.
It’s not the Sumerian religion you should be looking at, it’s the Akkadian religion. So many more parallels there.
