The most common correspondence our office receives from newcomers and reader-fans: where do I start?
The Mardukite Research Organization (also known as the Mardukite Chamberlains) made active efforts to revive the true and authentic stream of Mardukite Mesopotamian wisdom and lore — research, developed and published from 2009 through 2012 as led by the presiding Nabu Maerdechai, Joshua Free, editor of the prestigious anthologies (the “silver” and “gold” editions) released only this past year. The work was performed and released chronologically as it was developed — in annual cycles.
The materials are obtainable as individual editions (called “liber” singularly or “libros” plural), in annual anthologies or even mega-anthologies (each containing two years of material). There were four developmental years in total and thus four primary cycles of information. They have recently been dubbed Mardukite 1.0 through 4.0 in order to maintain synchronicity with the classification of the newer NexGen Systemology work (currently 1.0 and 2.0).
MARDUKITE 1.0 consists of the original 2009 ‘Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible‘ cycle of materials, currently available in stand-alone libros editions (original gem series reissues), in the Year-1 Annual Anthology “Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible“ by Joshua Free (currently in its 5th edition) or the “Necronomicon – Anunnaki Legacy (Gold Edition)“ by Joshua Free.
The last time the “Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible“ was being revised and prepared for publication, the Mardukite Research Organization (Mardukite Chamberlains) had been midway through its second active year under the umbrella of the Mardukite Chamberlains. This was in May of 2010, when many changes were taking place at the Mardukite Office and the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press.
Since the last revision of the Necro-Bible, the Mardukite Chamberlains have completed three additional cycles of supplemental materials, usually catalogued by ‘year’. The Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible consists of the Year-1 ‘research and curriculum’, composed of what was originally four distinct libros or discourses that were made available individually during the first active year of the Mardukite Chamberlains in 2009. The Year-1 materials are available within the current “Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible“ anthology, as stand-alone editions and in the Necronomicon – Anunnaki Legacy (Silver Edition).
During the second year, the Mardukite Chamberlains looked deeper into the mysteries of the book you now hold and composed the Year-2 cycle as an investigation into the “Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible“ lore, developing a companion Year-2 anthology available as “Gates of the Necronomicon“ — and both the Year-1 and Year-2 materials are found in the combined mega-anthology “Necronomicon – Anunnaki Legacy (Silver Edition)“!!!
“Gates of the Necronomicon“ — the Year-2 (2010) anthology — contains three libros also available as stand-alone titles: “Sumerian Religion” (Liber 50), “Babylonian Myth & Magic” (Liber 51) and “Necronomicon Revelations” (Liber R).
IN ADDITION… — Interested adepts and advanced students, teachers, group leaders and revivalists have an additional two years of materials available to them beyond what has just been described. The Year-3 cycle was released in two different formats – an esoteric and an academic – but the same materials appear in both. The esoteric cycle includes a trilogy of Necronomicon Spellbooks (labeled I, II and III) that are culminated in the anthology “Necronomicon Workbook“. The academic cycle is also presented as a trilogy: Magan Magic (Liber E), Maqlu Magic (Liber M) and Beyond the Ishtar Gate (Liber C), which compose the anthology “Mesopotamian Magic“. Only the presentation between the two differs — the materials themselves are the same in both editions/versions of the cycle. The decision to present the materials in this way was a choice in demographical marketing research conducted by the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press.
Furthermore, all of the Year-3 and even deeper Year-4 materials were combined into the mega-anthology: “Necronomicon Gnosis (Gold Edition)“ newly released in late 2013. There are other technical provisions that might be extended at this point — for example, the “Book of Marduk“ appears in the latest 5th Edition of the “Necronomicon Anunnaki Bible,“ but not among the stand-alone libros of Year-1 or earlier editions of the Necro-Bible — or — that the materials known as Secrets of Sumerian Language formulate its own separate place outside the traditional cycles and is its own anthology, relevant for those both within and apart from the Mardukite pursuits, including students and academicians (meaning that the volume is actually an existension of the Year-3 academic cycle)… but all of this kind of superlative data concerning the materials would only serve to confuse the newcomer, who is prompted to simply begin with the Year-1 cycle anyway…
