... Seventeeth Century It now appears to be the opinion of an increasing number of historians that during the fateful years 1640 to 1660 England was taken over and run by an army of religious zealots in preparation for the millennium. Our general understanding of this crucial period in English history has reached a point where the emergence of social upheaval and military discipline may be seen ... example, reminds us in his famous study of civilisation that the well known millenarian Joachim of Fiore, on the very threshold of western culture, expressly looked upon the new Christian religion of his time as that of a third term to follow the religions of the Old and New Testaments. He described these terms respectively as the Age of the Father, the ... of the Son and the Age of the Holy Ghost, apparently perceiving these eras as ones in which the emergence of the progenitor and particular subsequent fragmentations, producing a bright comet and a bright trail respectively, counted as the principal turning points in a connected historical sequence in preparation for the supposed millennium. It is an interesting question, in other words, ...

... , historical or biographical nature, elicit literature's relationship to those domains. Moralist-humanist critics assess a work's moral or cultural acceptability in terms of established standards of good taste or social or religious utility. Recent politico-economic criticism is little different, merely substituting its own extrinsic optic or standard for the conventional ones, often assessing literature largely in terms of its effectiveness or participation ... , and it is the consequences of these which are a major determinant in our communal activities. Dr Velikovsky has urged this particularly with regard to myth, legend, folktale and religion. I wish to expand on his insights, to say that a good portion of our creative art, and particularly the long-lasting narratives which have demonstrated their durability and universality, ... ; our past, our racial collective past, determines a large proportion of our present, determines the sorts of things we do as man-we make war on ourselves, we make religions, we make myths and legends.

... history of man may be fully understood within the cosmos in which he has been a very involved participant. It was Velikovsky's thesis that, in the ancient myths, legends and religious origins of man, we find reliable evidence that the earth and its people have experienced and recorded a series of devastating cosmic catastrophes. The parallels between Vico and Velikovsky should not ... the order of such awesome events, the nature of which was remembered to a remarkably accurate degree, was, nonetheless, rearranged, possibly for schematic reasons associated with the Hopi religion. We are not, in the present paper, in any position to make an exhaustive study of all myths of catastrophe, much less to compare them with other categories of ... unpredictable, unique, and nonrational. Some of these may be denied, ignored, or attacked while other such phenomena are cherished and even celebrated, as art, play and religion-but they lack immediate survival value, although they do "make life worth living."

... strata relating to the Akkadian empire ever been found? The answer is definitely in the affirmative and following is what might be only a partial list of such discoveries. A vast religious temenos, originally founded by Sargon of Akkad, was encountered at Sippar by Vincent Scheil in 1893. Because the temenos was replaced by other buildings, dated to a thousand years ... from, the Babylonian exile. Actually there was a time when Heinsohn himself was of the same opinion. Thus, in 1982, he was still stating that "the monotheistic religion instituted by Abraham is not identical with the practice of his followers after the exile."

(125) Thus the translation of the name Hammurabi as "[ the god Hammu is great" not only makes perfect sense, it also fits with the religio-historical facts while conforming to the general nomenclature of Mesopotamian monarchs.
