Temple of Sumer is a collective group comprised of members from around the world including Sumerian Studies scholars, Assyriologists, independent researchers, Sumerian Reconstructionists, Mesopotamian Pagans, as well as those inspired by Sumerian religion, writers, and artists to name but a few. Our purpose is to explore and revive the religion, culture, philosophy, and history of the Sumerian people, their contemporaries, and the cultures they inspired over the course of history.
An oracle deck based on Mesopotamian Mythology. The Sumerian Oracle deck is a card divination system (Cartomancy) with some similarities to Tarot. It is based on the Sumerian / Mesopotamian gods and spirits and the culture surrounding them. The art is inspired by ancient texts, cylinder seals, ancient stele, and other ancient art with as much ancient iconography and symbolism as possible.
These are translations from the Oxford collection. They don’t have all of the myths that are available, but they do have most of the most common myths.

This document translates Sumerian into English. It isn’t useful if you want to write or say anything in Sumerian, but it is useful if you want to understand a word or if you want to know what something is associated with. It is amazingly useful to me, but wouldn’t have been if I were just starting out.
