Perhaps one of the most interesting characters involved in creation myths, Lilith is a religious figure and a female demon who became a symbol of femininity, courage, strength, rebellion, women’s equality with and independence from men.
Lilith is known as the first feminist in the world and there is a good reason for that. According to the Book of Genesis, the first book of the Hebrew Bible, specifically in Genesis 2:22, it is stated that God created Eve from the rib of Adam.
In an earlier part of the Book, Genesis 1:27, however, it is said that God created Lilith from the same clay that Adam was created (for he said in Genesis 2:18 “it is not good for man to be alone”).
Seeing how they were created the same way and were equals, Lilith refused to submit to Adam. They could not get along and she left Adam after which Adam complained to the Almighty according to some beliefs.
From Dead Sea Scrolls of 40-10 BC to Zohar documents of 1280, sources of Jewish folklore and mythology mentioned Lilith many times as a demon along with all the other texts of Mesopotamian mythology.
That said, who and what Lilith is a topic for another very long article that we will be focusing on later. Now, let us get back to Lilith sigil for invoking her and the most prominent Lilith symbol.
