Semitic God of Storms
By:
Post # 1
I'm looking for information regarding Hadad/Haddad/Adad, the Semitic God of Storms (Cannanite). I've come across some basic information such as his iterations throughout the other parts of Mesopotamia as well as his family line, but I was hoping someone would have specifics. Any information would be helpful.

You might have more luck finding information if you look under his more commonly known title of Ba'al.

Following source: Encyclopedia Britannica - https://www.britannica.com/topic/Hadad

Hadad,also spelledHad,Hadda, orHaddu, the Old Testament Rimmon, West Semitic god of storms, thunder, and rain, the consort of the goddessAtargatis. His attributes were identical with those ofAdadof the Assyro-Babylonian pantheon. He was the chiefbaal (lord) of the West Semites (including both sedentary and nomadic Aramaeans) in north Syria, along the Phoenician coast, and along theEuphrates River. As Baal-Hadad he was represented as a bearded deity, often holding a club and thunderbolt and wearing a horned headdress. The bull was the symbolic animal of Hadad, as of the Hittite deityTeshub, who was identical with him.
