Babylon was one of the most important cities of antiquity, known for its Hanging Gardens and the Tower of Babel. It was inhabited by a unique people: the Sumerians.
The Sumerians developed one of the earliest forms of writing: the cuneiform writing. They were highly knowledgeable in the fields of public administration, law, astronomy, agriculture, among others. Their advanced culture influenced several civilizations, playing a major role in the history of mankind.
The Unknown Babylon presents new insights into the life and culture of this people, their connection with Atlantis and the construction of the Great Pyramid of Egypt. The enchanting face of Babylon is also portrayed, with its festivals, temples, and streets, as well as the dark times, marked by the proliferation of cults of idolatry, especially the cult of Baal. Fascinating characters are revealed in an engaging narrative: Emengal, the great seer, the beautiful Maris Iamin, the wise young Alaparos, and the great king-priest of Ur, Min-Ani-Pad.
The Unknown Babylon speaks of a time of great affliction and change, when the Sumerians coexisted with the occupation of their capital by foreign groups, attracted by its magnificence, shaking the basis of their highly developed culture.
