Wrathful gods, passionate yet vengeful goddesses and divinities of mercy and death dominated religious life in the ancient Near East for thousands of years before evolving into the One God of Israel. In this course, we will meet these divine predecessors where they originated, in Sumer, from about 2300 BCE. Together we will discover their influence upon the imagery and activity of God the Creator in the Hebrew Bible.
