Lilith

Posted on July 9, 2012

I fell in love with the idea of western demonology when I first heard of it. The proto-religions of Mesopotamia reassured me that the seemingly clear-cut paths that the Jewish and Christian parts of my family follow also had their adolescent phase, not all of which could be erased.

The figure of Lilith in particular struck me as an odd fragment that remains all but forgotten. Research mode: She's a demon, a vile temptress– bride of Samael, the Angel of Death. She was Adam's unyielding first companion expelled from the Garden; god's first failure. Lilith wasn't willing to be part of the plan, belying fallibility in a perfect world. Beyond all, she was a reject…

Having been cleared off the drawing board, Lilith had her own path follow.

Unlike Adam and Eve, she was given the gift of choice.

The mystery surrounding her existence is the kind of legend that has survived every recorded civilization.

She is defiant in every way til the last.
