A meeting place for myth, imagination, and mystery in pop culture.

" Readers may have heard of Lilith from Jewish folklore with the idea that she was Adam's second wife. But this post takes another approach after considering a mention of her in the book of Isaiah, chapter 34 (Jerusalem Bible translation): Wild cats will meet hyenas there, the satyrs will call to each other, there too will Lilith take cover seeking rest.

After some discussion of the various instances where Lilith is mentioned in different cultures and time periods, the author notes that she appears in ancient Babylonian and Assyrian contexts.

Flood Stories from Around the World

I have included stories here if (1) they are stories; (2) they are folklore, not historical accounts or fiction by a known author; and (3) they involve a flood. In most borderline cases, I included the story here anyway. For example, one story (Hopi) tells of a flood which was avoided and never occurred. My method for collecting these stories is simply to collect every flood story I find. I have omitted a few extremely fragmentary accounts, such as sources that say "These people have a legend of a flood in which most people were killed" and little or nothing more. Within each continent or region, stories are grouped by language family. I am sure there are many more flood stories which could be included here.

Mithras and Jesus

In certain sorts of literature, the claim is made that Jesus is merely a copy of Mithras. A series of statements are made about Mithras - born of a virgin, had a last supper, died, resurrected, etc - which do make him seem identical. This portrait of Mithras is entirely misleading.
