From the Omens of Babylon

£6.99

Product description

From the Omens of Babylon: Astrology and Ancient Mesopotamia by Michael Baigent. Published 1994 by Penguin. Paperback in very good condition.

This study is an account of what is known of Babylonian astrology, retelling a lot of Mesopotamian material that has been buried in abstruse academic tones. Although it is most specifically about Mesopotamian astrology, it also tells the story of the discovery in the 19th century of this ancient city, and describes what is known of their culture. The second part of the book focuses on each of the seven major deities of their religion - their myths, cults and oenology, and how much of these ancient Babylonian interpretations of the gods natures has survived in modern astrology.
