Mesopotamian and Sumerian mythology
Mesopotamian and Sumerian myths told of numerous gods, such as An (god of the heavens), Enlil (god of the air and storms), Enki (the god of water and the earth), Ninhursag (the goddess of the earth), and Inanna (the goddess of love and war). Further, certain gods represented various jurisdictions of the Mesopotamian Empire, such as Ashur, the patron god of Assyria, and Marduk, patron god of Babylon. In terms of religious practices, every shrine in Sumeria was named after a single god; for example, the E'anna temple in Uruk was named after Inanna. With the extension of the Sumerian civilization into surrounding areas, these gods became part of a single family of divinities known as the Anunaki. The degree to which Sumerian and Mesopotamian gods were conceived as anthropomorphic also developed through the centuries and with the expansion of the empire. Early on, the Sumerians conceived themselves as living inside a divine realm. Rather than viewing An as "the god" of the heavens, they decided that he was the heavens. With the growth in size and importance of the temples, the social status of the temple functionaries grew as well, and a hierarchy developed headed by the En (chief priest). Through a joint process of anthropomorphization and Euhemerization, these priests became divinized and the gods they represented came to be seen in increasingly human terms. For example, the chief priest of the god of the air (Lil) at the E-kur temple at the city of Nippur became En-Lil (later Enlil). In their more humanized form, these gods and their mythologies formed the template for later polytheistic systems, most notably that of the Greeks.
