Als sich Götter und Menschen miteinander unterhielten …
According to Sumerian mythology (the so-called “Spell of Nudimmud”) originally men spoke to the god Enlil in one and the same language. Then, the god Enki “put different tongues in their mouths”. Did this change affect the communication between gods andmen, as well? In the ancient Mesopotamian literature, men and gods spoke to each other frequently: does this mean that they shared the same language? Some evidence seems to goagainst this hypothesis. It is not unlikely that at least at some time the Mesopotamians distinguished between an original writing, shared by both men and gods, and a later one, the cuneiformwriting. This hypothesis couldalsoaccount forwhat looks like an inconsistency in theMesopotamian mythology, where writing is described both as a gift of the gods (Inanna and the MEs) and as a human invention (Enmerkara and the Lord of Aratta).
