What is the Tower of Babel

The Tower of Babel represents the diffusion of the various languages spoken in the world and the beginning of something as important to people as communication.

It also represents the sin of pride, because we want to get to heaven and thus reminds God.

Beginning of the construction of the Tower of Babel
At that time, the humanity that spoke the same language decided to settle in the land of Senar, which is identified with Mesopotamia. There the city of Babel was built and a great tower was built, whose purpose was to reach heaven.

What happened to the Tower of Babel
The Arameans and Syrians are said to have destroyed the tower and rebuilt it several times. This year, Andrew George, a professor of Babylonian history at the University of London, studied a tablet from the sixth century B.C. C. found in Babylonia more than 100 years ago.
