Snake Cults Dominated Early Arabia

May 17, 2007 — Pre-Islamic
Middle Eastern regions
were home to mysterious
snake cults, according to
two papers published in
this month's Arabian
Archaeology and Epigraphy

From at least 1250 B.C.
until around 550 A.D.,
residents of what is now
the Persian Gulf worshipped
snakes in elaborate temple
complexes that appear
to have been built for
this purpose, the
studies reveal.
