Not every language uses the Roman alphabet, and when borrowing a word or phrase from a language written in non-Latin characters, we have to be careful. Technically, such a word cannot really be misspelled since we are transcribing it from its original form into a more universally recognized alphabet so it can be learned, enjoyed and understood by more readers. However, if it is common enough, there is often an accepted phonetic version adopted by most writers. Take mazal tov and mazel tov for instance.
Text Intro Just to give a brief explanation of the Ugaritic texts, which are the primary comparison texts, they date from the 14th century BCE and before.
The following is a list of the Ugaritic text abbreviations. Unfortunately there are different notation systems created by different authors, for the same text. As I stated earlier, these deities cross borders and boundaries, taking beliefs with them, merging and carrying on through time.
Rather, developmental process began, at the latest, at the end of the Bronze Age, gained momentum during the Iron Age, and finally issued it in a practical, and at certain points, even theoretical, monotheism. It seems that particular gods or better, their priesthoods gobbled up other gods, so to speak, and so took over their functions and identities.
Thus eventuated a monopoly on divine worship — a development that certainly also had something to do with economic and political interests. The old branch of Egyptian monotheism that Lemeche is referring to is that of the primal creator Ptah, before the later Egyptian trinity was formed and the solar aspects were mainly attributed to Ra, said to be the son of Ptah.
We cannot limit our research to one time, one location or one belief; not if we want to find the truth. They are not epics like Homers works, but deal more with history, astronomy, ethics, genealogies, farming, metal works, etc. One particular passage that I would like to share is for the historical application of the Indo-European patriarchal changes that swept so much of the land, but also for the obvious example of yet another assimilation of another cultures writings and beliefs by a patriarchal priesthood scribe for the Bible.
This Hesiod writing is important because it actually relates information about the lands and peoples, their state of affairs prior to the patriarchal takeovers that Hesiod relates as the men of bronze, the time of warfare and heroes. Archaeologically, this pattern of events and metal usage is confirmed, though Hesiod would not have had many written records from the golden age, to reference.
This patriarchal wave is further explained in the Clan Mother to Goddess section below. The biblical passage is that of Daniel 2, the supposed dream by Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babel.
The dream is about a statue of various metals on the body parts. Daniel interprets what these metals mean, representing different kingdoms that are, and will come to pass.
This is not the study to provide all the linguistic, historical and archaeological evidence to this fact. The book states that the head was gold, representing the Babylonians.
The chest and arms were silver, representing the Medes and Persians. The belly and thighs were bronze, representing the Hellenes [Greeks] and the legs of iron and feet mixed of iron and clay, representing a worse, inferior government, strong, crushing and breaking everything.
This is the time period the book is actually written and for self preservation, does not name the then current Roman government. In chapter 7, another dream is provided about 4 beasts, each again representing the governments. The 4th beast was more terrifying and frightening, very powerful with large iron teeth that crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot anything that was left.
The following Hesiod account, written over years before the book of Daniel, is in Works and Days, versesbased on the translation by Dorothea Wender.The Foundation/Robot Series What is this Forward the Foundation I keep hearing about?
