Product Description
This is a 19 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Ancient Civilizations - The Babylonian Empire. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Babylon is the most famous city from ancient Mesopotamia whose ruins lie in modern day Iraq, 59 miles southwest of Baghdad. The name is thought to derive from the Akkadian language of the time, meant ‘Gate of God’ or Gate of the Gods.’ The city owes its infamy to the many references the Bible makes to it; all of which are unfavorable. Yet EVERY ANCIENT WRITER MENTIONS BABYLON WITH A TONE OF AWE AND REVERENCE.

In the Book of Genesis, chapter 11, Babylon is featured in the story of The Tower of Babel and the Hebrews claimed the city was named for the confusion which ensued after God caused the people to begin speaking in different languages so they would not be able to complete their great tower to the heavens. Babylon also appears prominently in the biblical books of Daniel, Jeremiah, and Isaiah, among others, and, most notably, The Book of Revelation.

After Alexander’s death at Babylon, his successors known as ‘The Diadochi’, fought over his empire generally and the city specifically to the point where the residents fled for their safety and were re-located. By the time the Parthian Empire ruled the region in 141 BCE Babylon was deserted and forgotten. The city steadily fell into ruin and, even during a brief revival under the Sassanid Persians, never approached its former greatness.
