Our Inspiration: The Tower of Babel
The Tower of Babel, featured in biblical literature, was a monumental structure constructed in the land of Shinar (Babylonia) after the Deluge. The account of its creation, as described in Genesis 11:1–9, serves as an explanation for the diversity of human languages.
According to the Genesis narrative, the Babylonians sought to establish their reputation by erecting a grand city and a towering structure that would reach the heavens. However, God intervened by causing confusion among the workers, making it impossible for them to understand one another. Consequently, the city remained unfinished, and its inhabitants were scattered across the globe.
This tale of the Tower of Babel serves as our namesake, symbolizing the rich history of linguistic diversity and the complexities of human communication. It inspires us to embrace the power of language, interpretation, and cross-cultural understanding in our endeavours
