We begin our journey in the fifth millennia BC, when the very mention of the word

“Sumerian” struck terror in the hearts of their Semitic neighbors in southern Mesopotamia.

For it was then that these settlers with their strange language and culture were believed to be fierce invaders from the north.


The Sumerians called themselves “the black-headed people,” and claimed that their

civilization had been brought, fully formed, to the city of Eridu by the Abgallu (big water-man).

Bringing with them a perfected form of irrigation, the Sumerians were able to survive and prosper in Iraq's arid southern floodplain by controlling the waters of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers for year-round irrigation and drinking water.


The Sumerians believed that beneath the earth, which formed the base of a closed dome surrounded by a primordial sea, existed an underworld and a freshwater ocean called, the Abzu. The god of the dome-shaped universe was called An, the earth Ki, the underworld Kigal, and the primordial sea Nammu.


 In this book, are simple rites dedicated to various Sumerian deities for the granting of good fortune, power, influence and so on. However, the magic rites possess no value at all, if you don’t believe in their power to help you.

There is no logical reason why placing a petition with an unseen deity of an ancient race should bring you good luck, but logic has no place in the world of magical rites and ceremonies. All that matters is that Magic can and does get results. Do not wonder how it will happen, just believe that it will.
