MORE LILITH DOCUMENTATION

SUMERIAN LILITH
   LILith is "Lilitu" in the Sumerian texts.  A terra-cotta relief of
Lilitu shows her with a 'beehive'-shaped helmet or headress.  She has
three-toed feet like a bird or falcon (or dinosaur/dragon?).  Her body
is nude and voluptuous, thus seductive.  She has long hair and a pair
of falcon wings.  At either side are a pair of owls, which are birds
of prey, night-hunters famed for vigilance & wisdom (also identified
with Athena and Minerva).  Her feet stand on jackals, known for their
plaintive crying in the night.

HEBREW LILITH
   The wife/sister of Lucifer.  Queen of the Underworld and of witches.
Queen of the succubi, who ravished men in their sleep for their seed to
reproduce "Lilem" or demons.  Sucked the blood of young children and of
girl babies.  Abducted and ate boys.  She is the "Night Hag" and "Night
Mary" who brings "terror by night" and nightmares.  The rabbis say that
Lilith led Lucifer into rebellion and caused his fall.

PSEUDEPIGRAPHAL LILITH
   Called "Luluwa"--a version of "Lilith" in Hebrew--she was the twin
sister and wife of Cain.  Would "shine" or "glow brightly" or perhaps
have horns like her twin brother.  Said to be the offspring of Samael
or Satanail, now called Satan.  Cain's nickname "H'ILL" or "The Shining
One" is male form of "Lilith" in Hebrew.  Exiled for murder, which she
is said to help cause.  Liluwa was noted for her great beauty when she
was young.  As offspring of an angel, said to have powers of flight and
shape-shifting, and to be very tall.  Their line noted for cannibalism
and drinking blood.  Luluwa is blamed for Cain's downfall.

LIBYAN LILITH
   Lamia, Queen of Libya, the Greeks said, had children by Zeus, but
his wife Hera vowed revenge.  Hera forced Lamia to eat her children.
Lamia turned from a beautiful woman into an ugly hag who went around
haunting the night, scratching children with her claws and draining
their blood.  She shape-shifted at will.  Famed for her vigilance at
night, she could extract her eyes and keep watch while sleeping.

ROMAN LILITH
   Libitina, or "little Libi," apparently derived her name from the
semitic root "L'B" which meant "fat" or "whitish" in color.  The name
relates to Lilith's association with the pale light of the moon.  In
the case of Libitina, she lived in the Underworld and was the Roman
version of Persephone, goddess of witches, wife of Pluto.  This would
correspond exactly to the Hebrew story of Lilith as the mate & sister
of Lucifer.  The name "Libitina" may have led to the associating of
Lilith with Libya, and thus, the Lamia story above.

GREEK LILITH
   Persephone was the Queen of the Underworld.  Also known by the very
likely older name "Pro-Serpentina" meaning "Proceeded from a Serpent"
--that is, the Serpent's Daughter.  See ROMAN LILITH also.

SCOTTISH LILITH
   The "Glaistigs" of the Scottish Highlands in the far north were
shape-shifting females who could disguise themselves as beautiful
women, entice men into intimate embrace, then suck their blood to
extract their life force.

MEXICAN LILITH
   "Le Chusa" is an owl that sits on houses at night and turns into a
beautiful woman when prayers are said.  Like Cain, she then begs not
to be killed.  Noted for her plaintive night crying.  The name "Chusa"
may relate to "Cush" which some identify with "Kish"--the first city
founded by LILith's group after the Flood.

AZTEC LILITH
   The largest and most ancient pyramid of Mexico, which is no doubt
pre-Aztec and even pre-Olmec, is called "ChoLula."  Atop it were two
temples dedicated to a male-female pair, husband/wife and twin brother
and sister.  Both have wings like Lilith.  The female is "Woman-Serpent"
and is blamed for causing sin.  The male is entwined with serpents also.
Human sacrifices atop the pyramid involve eating hearts of victims. The
people then eat corn (Cain's symbolic meal) mixed with blood.  Legend
says ChoLula was built by a family of giants who survived a Deluge, but
was destroyed by fire out of heaven. [See MEGALITHS OF BLOOD page]
