The Babylonian Translation of the Exorcism of the Crown of ANU

When I first started writing for this great blog I had many ideas about what I wanted to accomplish !ome of those ideas I ha"e gi"en shape# and ha"e seen them
successfully come true $thers I ha"e yet to gi"e physical shape# although the mental image of these goals has since long been clearly impressed on my mind There
is one specific goal which I ha"e sought to complete since my in"ol"ement in the Tradition# but I came to the conclusion that I first had to impro"e my %nowledge of
the ancient tongue# and that I had to impro"e my s%ill of recogni&ing the often confusing differences that exist in the texts that are a"ailable to us While I en'oy such
challenges I must honestly admit that it can be incredibly frustrating# mainly because all of us who are in"ol"ed in contributing to this blog see% to be as accurate as
possible when it comes to the Necronomicon Tradition# because we ta%e our tas%s seriously And because we are one of the few proper sources of information
regarding the Necronomicon we ha"e a responsibility towards our readers and ha"e to ta%e great care that our information is "alid and that it can be relied on It is
for that same reason that some parts of the Boo% are seldom discussed# as we are yet unable to locate the source material which can "alidate their authenticity This
is "ery important because feeding people false information# which may# or may not be unintentional# is# in my eyes# an act of (wor%ing e"il) Therefore it should be
a"oided It is for this "ery reason that the translation of the Exorcism of the Crown of ANU has not yet been added to this blog That is# howe"er# about to change as
I am fairly certain that I can present to the reader a fairly accurate Babylonian translation of this important and much used exorcism
