“When MARDUK decided to raise himself to the ‘God’ status for NABU’s new Babylonian monaltric religious system, new political issues ignited for Anunnaki on Earth… other Anunnaki were less than appreciative of MARDUK’s desire to reign over them. Although the Age of Aries, his sign, did come, the glory that should have been his, was never granted — a disciplinarian act by the other gods.”
— explains Joshua Free in the GATES OF THE NECRONOMICON anthology.
MARDUK lost rights of official Anunnaki kingship “in heaven” for taking a “human” wife, instead of his betrothed half-sister INANNA-ISHTAR. He argued (to the Anunnaki Assembly) that SARPANIT (his chosen consort, mother of NABU) was descended from ADAPA [see the Necronomicon Annunnaki Bible], and therefore of ENKI‘s (Anunnaki) bloodline; further, that INANNA-ISHTAR was no more interested in the union than he was (and it had not affected her rise to power); and finally, if not “in heaven,” why not “on earth”?
While we are forced to guess how the other Anunnaki chose to respond to MARDUK, resulting catastrophes in the Middle East — and the thousands of years of unrest thereafter — show evidence to believe this arrangement between factions did not occur peacefully.
-A-MARDUKITE-LEGACY-BORN-In Assyrian accounts, MARDUK, as the great “father-god” Assur or Ashur [“Ashshur”], seems to emerge as if from nowhere. Some scholars in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s considered this to mean the idea of the Babylonian Holy Family — MARDUK, SARPANIT and NABU — as being fictitious figures imagined into being by the priest-scribes for purely political reasons.
SARPANIT [also SARAPAN or ZARPANITU] is mentioned often in (Mardukite) Babylonian prayers (incantation tablets) but does not appear in any recovered mythic/epic tablet cycles from Babylon. Politically, she achieves an elevated status (where ISHTAR is an Anunnaki Queen, SARA-PAN becomes literally “Princess“) by her relationship with MARDUK. Together, they are the parents of NABU, patron of the scribe-priests hosting Babylonian Religion — called Mardukite. At the spring equinox — A.KI.TI New Year festival — she is the “spring-maiden” of Babylonian fertility festivals.
Being absent in the genealogies of ENKI and ENLIL as well as the Igigi (igi-igi, Watchers), Mardukites acknowledge SARPANIT as an “earthling” or “earthborn” demi-god (part-divine) by birth [given the accounts of the Creation of Adapa].
SARPANIT is also known as ERUA, or more appropriately, ERU. European magical-clans of hereditary occultism, such as “Stregherians” “Elven-Faerie” “Vampyre”– bloodlines acknowledging descent from MARDUK — gave to their “Star-Goddess Mother of Vegetation and Fertility” …and sure enough eru is an Akkadian word for pregnancy…
