Abstract: In this paper I offer a survey on the different patterns of the narrative on creation in the mythological cosmogonies of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia and Greece and a sketch of God’s creative act according to the Bible, along with an analysis of some of the textual and theoretical problems involved in. I show how the inquiry about an absolute Beginning of the world is contradictory, and that reality is better explained by a Principle than by an absolute Beginning.
