Wherefore, Abraham took Sarah his wife and many servants also, and he took all his
herds and possessions, and he journeyed northward along the river Euphrates. And
after many days journey he came to the city of Haran, and he dwelt there many days.
Summary: The city or regions of Haran was located in the land of Ur (present-day
Turkey). Haran was the temporary dwelling place of Abraham and Sarah, who were later
joined by Abraham’s father, Terah (B:26:74).
The name denotes a woman named Adora who was from the house of Abel in the city of
Haran. Haran was one of the twelve cities of the Sethian Empire. Adora was one of
the priestesses of Haran and was herself a master weaver. With the collapse of the
Empire, Adora fled to the city of Gabatha and eventually took refuge in Zion.
