Lilith is a myth, a story that seeks to provide an answer to understand what we humanly do not understand. Myths teach us.

The origin of the myth

Lilith belongs to ancient Hebrew folklore; its history is built over more than 16 centuries adding and taking characteristics from the myth. It comes from the Bible, but it is not in it; arises to recount a passage from Genesis (1: 27-28). It goes like this: “God created man in his image, he created him in the image of God, he created man and woman. God blessed them saying: “Be fruitful and multiply.” He created both male and female 25 verses before Eve is created from Adam’s rib. So for the Hebrews, Adam’s first wife did exist, they called her Lilith and her story was created in parts. Knowing the history of Lilith is complicated both by the number of sources and by the silence, the prohibition and what is believed about her but is not written anywhere.

Lilith and Adam were the same and lived together in Eden; there was harmony between them, until Lilith wanted to change her sexual position, lying on top of him, but Adan didn’t allow it. They argued, no one gave in and they pronounced the Sacred Name of God, something that was forbidden to them. She did not keep silent before the imposition of Adam, she got angry, she expressed herself and, not being listened to, she left Eden, being the first woman to leave a man.


The myth went around the 13th century AD. Until then, Lilith was not enough of a threat to fear him, she could even become an image of liberation and equality for women.

Sudden death syndrome “crib death” appeared in which healthy newborns woke up dead. The mothers asked the rabbis for an explanation and comfort, and they blamed Lilith, justifying that God could not be so cruel and that only someone who had separated from Him would be capable of something like that. This pain, turned into hate, has sentenced her.

The story of Lamashtu was known, a Mesopotamian demon who killed children at night and attacked men seducing them. The union of the two stories completed the myth, women hated Lilith with her beauty, courage and seduction and her freedom was threatened.

Today, feminists of the 20th century take Lilith as their flag, both for the aspect of the original goddess of humanity and for the freedom of choice over patriarchy.
