Summary:  Located in the fertile crescent of ancient Mesopotamia, the Sumerian Empire had its beginnings with the first city of Sumer, referred to as the “mother of nations and of war” (B:6:15,18). Sumer was established (c. 12,700 BCE) along the banks of the Euphrates river by Cain, the first son of Adam and Eve. Thriving for centuries, Sumer became a hub for trading and commerce amidst other lesser cities that rose up throughout the lands of Mesopotamia. The Sumerian Empire came to include the cities of Kish, Shinar, Uruk, Babel and Calneh (B:12:5). At some point (perhaps between 10,000 — 9,000 BCE), it’s safe to assume there was interaction and trade between the Sumerian Empire and the Sethian Empire — the foundations of which were established by Seth in the lands of Egypt (1:3:22-30).


Soon after the city of Zion was established by Enoch in the lands of Sumer, Cain was murdered by his son, Yasher-Baal, who immediately assumed the throne and initiated an aggressive military campaign to expand the power and dominion of Sumer (Beginnings 6—7). Implementing an oppressive aristocracy empowered by a harsh judicial system, Yasher-Baal overthrew the leadership of neighboring city-states and appointed his sons as kings (c. 8,780 BCE). Due to various failed military and personal endeavors — especially his unsuccessful siege against the city of Zion — Yasher-Baal went mad and abandoned his position as King of Sumer. The vacuum created a power struggle that ultimately led to civil war and collapse of the first Sumerian Empire (Beginnings 18–19).



Azrael’s Commentary — Maciah; para. 1

...For after the loss of Zion, and with the collapse of the Sumerian Empire, many of the Adaam who had once followed Cain and Yasher-Baal decided to rejoin themselves with the last remnants of the Sethian Empire (AZC — Maciah).



Azrael’s Commentary — Methuselah I; para. 4

[...] The mission of Methuselah in Mesopotamia lasted only forty years. The mission to Egypt lasted for 200 years. The reason for this disparity between missions is simple. The Adaam, who followed Cain and Yasher-Baal, were concentrated near the known cities of the Sumerian Empire. The Adamic remnants of the Sethian Empire were scattered far and wide throughout Egypt; and adding to this difficulty, the remnants of the Sethian Empire hid their settlements in an attempt to escape the wrath of their arch-enemy, Ahgah Eaton.

Azrael’s Commentary — Methuselah II; para. 1

Methuselah grew up in a pleasant Adamic village called Pelaree where he loved to fish on the Sea of Galilee. But after his father’s death, he moved to Mount Moriah where he met a strange giant of a man who suffered from madness. This man was none other than Yasher-Baal. Methuselah befriended Yasher-Baal and over a period of years, Yasher-Baal recovered from his dementia. Yasher-Baal proved helpful to Methuselah in the writing of a complete and comprehensive history of the Adamic Age. This history included a complete account of Adam and Eve, the great division of the Adaam, and a subsequent history of both the Sethian Empire and the Sumerian Empire. Yet, despite this friendly collaboration, Methuselah could not reconcile Yasher-Baal to God; and sometime after the history was completed, Yasher-Baal simply walked away and was never heard from again. This history of the Adamic Age was presented in a 14-volume set of books. [...]
