Vedic and Mesopotamian

by Nicholas Kazanas


This paper explores the important ancient myth of the Flood or Deluge in Vedic and Mesopotamian literatures. In a rich and careful exercise of compared mythology, it convincingly argues that the “Indic material seems to be older and to have influenced the Mesopotamian.”
