Il matrimonio sacro

A Sumer il Matrimonio Sacro, l’unione tra i due amanti divini, veniva nello stesso tempo rappresentato e realizzato con una vera notte d’ amore tra il re del paese, nelle vesti di Dumuzi, e una sacerdotessa in quelle di Inanna.

La cerimonia notturna, che avveniva nella camera più riposta del tempio, era segreta e si svolgeva secondo un rituale tramandato fin dalla notte dei tempi.
Secondo quanto è riportato nel famoso poema L’ EPOPEA DI GILGAMESH, Isthar s’ innamorò di Gilgamesh e tentò di sedurlo, ma questi la respinse ed ella, furente d’ odio e di gelosia, gli lanciò una terribile maledizione che gettò l’ eroe nella pena e nell’ angoscia.

Alla dea Isthar furono intitolate le possenti e meravigliose mura di Babilonia, la cui fama circolò per tutto il mondo antico e si protrasse nei secoli. Si diceva che fossero inespugnabili e che la stessa dea, in tenuta da battaglia, sorvegliasse l’ ingresso principale alla città durante gli assalti o i preparativi di guerra.

  9. In the awesome pattern of things you actually receive a B+ with regard to hard work. Exactly where you actually misplaced everybody ended up being on the details. As it is said, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be more true in this article. Having said that, permit me say to you precisely what did work. Your article (parts of it) is actually rather convincing and that is possibly why I am taking the effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, although I can certainly notice the leaps in reasoning you make, I am not really sure of just how you seem to connect the details that produce the actual conclusion. For now I will subscribe to your position but trust in the future you actually link the dots much better.
