The Lost Book of Enki

撒迦利亚·西琴 Zecharia Sitchin
失落的恩基书(The Lost Book of Enki)简介:

Enki was a god in Sumerian mythology, later known as Ea in Akkadian and Babylonian mythology. He was originally patron god of the city of Eridu, but later the influence of his cult spread throughout Mesopotamia and to the Hittites and Hurrians. He was the deity of crafts (gašam); mischief; water, seawater, and lakewater (a, aba, ab), intelligence (gestú, literally "ear") and creation (Nudimmud: nu, likeness, dim mud, make bear). He was assimilated[clarification needed] to the zenith in the Sun's path at the winter solstice.His sacred number name was "40".

The exact meaning of his name is uncertain: the common translation is "Lord of the Earth": the Sumerian en is translated as a title equivalent to "lord"; it was originally a title given to the High Priest; ki means "earth"; but there are theories that ki in this name has another origin, possibly kig of unknown meaning, or kur meaning "mound". The name Ea is allegedly Hurrian in origin while others  claim that it is possibly of Semitic origin and may be a derivation from the West-Semitic root *hyy meaning "life" in this case used for "spring", "running water." In Sumerian E-A means "the house of water", and it has been suggested that this was originally the name for the shrine to the God at Eridu.

"The story is compelling, drawing readers into the world of extraterrestrials, gods, and ancient events in a way that seems a combination of reading that daily paper and indulging in popular fiction.  Reading The Lost Book of Enki is a truly unique, intellectual, and pleasurable experience to recommend to customers looking for something a little different."
(R. John Allcorn, New Age Retailer, March/April 2002 )

"This book is another brilliant example of Sitchin's scholarship. I found it exciting reading, and give it my highest recommendation. The Lost Book of Enki . . . has an impact that will generate discussions all over the globe."
(Don Ecker, UFO Magazine, April-May 2002 )

"...this is really one interesting book....a very intriguing topic."
(Morgaine, Circle of Stones, July, 2004 )

"An epic tale of gods and men . . . challenging every assumption we hold about our past and future."
(Branches of Light, Issue 30 )

恩基(Enki)是苏美尔的水神,巴比伦名字为伊亚(Éa),在巴比伦语中,伊亚名字的两个字母É和A在巴比伦语皆有“生命”之意,所以恩基也同时是工艺以及创造之神。苏美语的 En 原本是高阶祭司的称号,后来引申有“王”的意思,而 ki 是“大地”的意思,合起来就是“大地之王”。恩基并非创世神,但却是文明的创造者,在美索不达米亚众神中列第三。
