523 words - 3 pages

The World Effects from GilgameshGilgamesh is the earliest text in existence, being over 3,500 years old, it gives insight into that time period and how people of that time thought and lived. Those cultural values of ancient Mesopotamia helped in the development of the basic ideas of both Christianity and Judaism. In knowing this, one can infer how important the story and legend of Gilgamesh is and was to the people of that time and of today's society.In knowing these facts, which go hand and hand with The Bible, historians can show that some of the texts within the body are in fact modeled from the story of Gigamesh. ...view middle of the document...

.......I brought out a raven and set it free, the raven went off and saw the ebbing of the waters,(Gilgamesh, p.86)" this excerpt from the text signifies how instrumental Gilgamesh was to the foundation of The Bible. The tale of Noah's Ark is taught to children all over the world during Sunday School, you see without the tale of Gilgamesh surviving till today, that tale would not be in The Bible and imagine how different the church's teachings would be.In a sense of parallelism, one could compare how Gilgamesh begins his epic with the building of the walls of his city, Uruk, and then ends it with showing the walls to Urshanabi. Threw this, the reader is supposed to infer that threw Gilgamesh's trials and tribulations, he has become wiser and a more capable ruler. And what parallels this, is that just like humanity has had its trials and tribulations, it has developed in to what we now know to be today.Enkidu's wildness was a simile for society back in that day, it was still very wild and full of dangerous things. And just how Enkidu was tamed by a women, society was tamed by time.In conclusion, Gilgamesh helped shape the society in which we live today in many different ways, from the morals that his epic bestilled upon us to the knowledge has been passed to down to us from his epic. So, without The Epic of Gilgamesh, today's humanity and understanding of history would be very different.
