Lilith is known by legend as Adam's first demonic wife, before Eve was even created. Lilith is also known as the wife of Satan and the mother of demons. But where do these myths come from? In this video we trace the history of Lilith back 5,000 years to her roots in Sumerian mythology and examine the written source material to see how her mythology developed from the Sumerian Lilitu, to the biblical Screech Owl, to the medieval legend of Lilith where she was viewed as the first wife of Adam, the mother of demons, the bride of Satan, and the demoness that snatches babies away from their homes at night. These are the true origins of Lilith!
