About The Fifty Names of Marduk

Babylonian God MardukWhen Babylon became the capital of Mesopotamia, Marduk, the patron deity of Babylon was elevated to the level of supreme god. Acknowledged as the creator of the universe and of humankind, the god of light and life, and the ruler of destinies, he rose to such eminence that he claimed 50 titles. His name literally means “bull calf of the sun”.

The Enûma Eliš, an epic poem of creation, tells the story of Marduk’s birth, heroic deeds and becoming the ruler of the gods. Included in this document are the fifty names of Marduk. They can be found here: The Fifty Names of Marduk

According to the mythology of the Necromonicon, (a work of fiction by H P Lovecraft), and an adaptation of that mythology, The Necronomicon Spellbook,  Marduk was the God who defeated the Ancient Ones long before the creation of matter as we know it. These Fifty Names, (according to the Necronomicon) were titles given to Marduk by the Elder Gods after he had helped them to defeat the Ancient Ones.

Each of the names has a magickal power and a sigil or symbol that goes along with it. What follows is a concise listing of the names, each linked to the information that goes with it:

“The Fifty Names here follow, with their Signs and Powers. They may be summoned after the Priest has ascended to that step on the Ladder of Lights and gained entrance to that Sacred City. The Signs should be engraved on parchment or sealed in clay and placed upon the altar at the Calling. And in the perfumes should be of cedar, and strong, sweet-smelling resins. And the Calling be to the North.”
