Lilith (Hebrew: לילית‎; lilit, or lilith) is a Hebrew name for a figure in Jewish mythology, developed earliest in the Babylonian Talmud, who is generally thought to be in part derived from a class of female demons Līlīṯu in Mesopotamian texts of Assyria and Babylonia. Evidence in later Jewish materials is plentiful, but little information has been found relating to the original Akkadian and Babylonian view of these demons. The relevance of two sources previously used to connect the Jewish Lilith to an Akkadian Lilitu—the Gilgamesh appendix and the Arslan Tash amulets—are now both disputed by recent scholarship.[1] The two problematic sources are discussed below.[2] The Hebrew term Lilith or "Lilit" (translated as "Night creatures", "night monster", "night hag", or "screech owl") first occurs in Isaiah 34:14, either singular or plural according to variations in the earliest manuscripts, though in a list of animals. Etymology[edit] In Akkadian the terms lili and līlītu mean spirits. [edit]

Apocalypse Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. L’Apocalypse ou Apocalypse de Jean ou encore Livre de la révélation, également appelé Révélation de Jésus-Christ (en grec ancien : Αποκάλυψις Ιησού Χριστού, apokálupsis Iēsou Christoũ) suivant les premiers mots du texte[1], est le dernier livre du Nouveau Testament. Étymologiquement, le mot « apocalypse » est la transcription d’un terme grec (ἀποκάλυψις / apokálupsis) signifiant « dévoilement » ou, sous un aspect religieux, « révélation » et appartient à un genre littéraire juif puis chrétien de type ésotérique – la littérature apocalyptique – qui présente une grande diversité mais qui a en commun un goût prononcé pour l'allégorie ainsi que pour le symbolisme, et dont l’Apocalypse de Jean constitue un modèle du genre.

Margaret of France, Queen of England Margaret of France (c. 1279[1] – 14 February 1318[1]), a daughter of Philip III of France and Maria of Brabant, was Queen of England as the second wife of King Edward I. Early life[edit] Her father died when she was three years old and she grew up under guidance of her mother and Joan I of Navarre, her half-brother King Philip IV's wife.[2] Marriage[edit] Margaret's seal as queen[4] Edward was then 60 years old, at least 40 years older than his bride. Edward soon returned to the Scottish border to continue his campaigns and left Margaret in London, but she had become pregnant quickly after the wedding. In less than a year Margaret gave birth to a son, Thomas of Brotherton who was named after Thomas Becket, since she had prayed to him during her pregnancy. The next year she gave birth to another son, Edmund. It is said[who?] She favored the Franciscan order and was a benefactress of a new foundation at Newgate. The mismatched couple were blissfully happy. Widowhood[edit] Issue[edit]

Eve and the Identity of Women: 7. Eve & Lilith In an effort to explain inconsistencies in the Old Testament, there developed in Jewish literature a complex interpretive system called the midrash which attempts to reconcile biblical contradictions and bring new meaning to the scriptural text. Employing both a philological method and often an ingenious imagination, midrashic writings, which reached their height in the 2nd century CE, influenced later Christian interpretations of the Bible. Inconsistencies in the story of Genesis, especially the two separate accounts of creation, received particular attention. Later, beginning in the 13th century CE, such questions were also taken up in Jewish mystical literature known as the Kabbalah. According to midrashic literature, Adam's first wife was not Eve but a woman named Lilith, who was created in the first Genesis account. Adam, distraught and no doubt also angered by her insolent behaviour, wanted her back. Lilith also personified licentiousness and lust. Lilith?

Cartimandua Cartimandua (or Cartismandua; reigned from c. 43 – c. 69) was a 1st-century queen of the Brigantes, a Celtic people living in what is now northern England. She came to power around the time of the Roman conquest of Britain, and formed a large tribal agglomeration that became loyal to Rome. Our only knowledge of her is through the Roman historian Tacitus, though she appears to have been widely influential in early Roman Britain. Her name may be a compound of the Common Celtic roots *carti- "chase, expel, send"[1] and *mandu- "pony".[2] History[edit] Her life story is fictionalised in Barbara Erskine's novel Daughters of Fire. Representation by Tacitus[edit] References[edit] Delamarre, Xavier (2003). Further reading[edit] External links[edit]

Lilith - semen demon or feminist icon? Exactly who or what is Lilith? Now regarded by Jewish esoteric tradition to be one of the four queens of demons, the nature of Lilith has undergone many reinterpretations throughout Jewish history. [Illustration: etching of Lilith on a metal amulet] The origins of Lilith are probably found in the Mesopotamian lilu, or “aerial spirit.” Some features of Lilith in later Jewish tradition also resemble those of Lamashtu, a Babylonian demoness who causes infant death. Furthermore, the characterization of Lilith as a named demonic personality really only begins late in antiquity. Jewish tradition gradually fixes on lilith as a female demon. Other sources describe her as a kind of succubus, seducing men in their sleep and then collecting their nocturnal emissions in order to breed demonic offspring (Shab. 151b) (See earlier entry, "Spawns of Satan"). The use of “Lilith” as the proper name of a specific demonic personality first appears in the Midrash.

Conversations with God Foundation - Home Apocalypse d'Esdras Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Origines et versions[modifier | modifier le code] Les spécialistes s'opposent sur la question de la langue d'origine du texte, hébreu ou araméen[3]. Paredejordi estime qu'il est établi que l'auteur était juif, en raison de la présence fréquente d'hébraïsmes dans le texte et parce que « l'auteur agrémente son discours de fictions très proches des talmudistes et des rabbins[4]. » Toutefois, les chapitres I, II, XIII et XIV de la version latine (et des traductions anglaises) ne proviennent pas du livre original mais d'additions ultérieures, probablement dues à des auteurs chrétiens[4]. Les versions latines tirées du Codex Sangermanensis, y compris celle de la Vulgate, diffèrent des éthiopiennes et d'autres versions par l'ajout de quatre chapitres et l'absence d'un chapitre. Des manuscrits en arménien, syriaque, géorgien et en arabe sont également conservés. Contenu[modifier | modifier le code] Influence[modifier | modifier le code]

Boudica "Boudicca" redirects here. For the cruise ship, see MV Boudicca. Boudica's husband Prasutagus was ruler of the Iceni tribe. He ruled as a nominally independent ally of Rome and left his kingdom jointly to his daughters and the Roman emperor in his will. The crisis caused the Emperor Nero to consider withdrawing all Roman forces from Britain, but Suetonius's eventual victory over Boudica confirmed Roman control of the province. Interest in the history of these events was revived during the English Renaissance and led to a resurgence of Boudica's fame during the Victorian era, and Queen Victoria was portrayed as her namesake.[8] Boudica has since remained an important cultural symbol in the United Kingdom. History[edit] Boudica's name[edit] Boudica has been known by several versions of her name. Her name was clearly spelled Boudicca in the best manuscripts of Tacitus, but also Βουδουικα, Βουνδουικα, and Βοδουικα in the (later and probably secondary) epitome of Cassius Dio. Background[edit]
