51. The Sibylline Oracles [Books]
... be burnt, retaining only those of the Sibyl: these he placed in gilded cases in the temple of Apollo on the Palatine.23 Tiberius, disturbed by a popular prophecy of the approaching end of the empire, set on foot a similar critical enquiry, which resulted apparently in some enlargement of the official collection as well as in the destruction of some spurious or worthless matter.24 It is needless to follow further the story of the Roman Sibylline canon,25 nor indeed is it directly connected with that of the Jewish-Christian books. But its indirect influence was considerable. The official adoption of the Sibyl by Rome herself, and the atmosphere of awe and secrecy with which her ...
52. The Catastrophic Finale of the Middle Bronze Age [Books] [de Grazia books]
... was he who, despite onerous preoccupations during the French War of Liberation, assembled and analyzed the mass of data which was finally published in 1948 under the title of Stratigraphie Comparée et Chronologie de L'Asie Occidentale, IIIe-IIe millénaires. In this great work, he compared some 40 important archaeological sites in the Near and Middle East for evidences of sudden destruction. And he found, without fail, that there had appeared several levels over a period of thousand years when destruction seemed simultaneously to descend upon Bronze Age cultures. His general conclusions were several: 1. Certain outstanding events... struck simultaneously a definite number or even the totality of urban centers of Western Asia... ...
... as are illustrative of Geology, so as to comprise an investigation of the permanent effects of causes now in action, which may serve as records to after ages of the present condition of the globe and its inhabitants. Such effects are the enduring monuments of the ever-varying state of the physical geography of the globe, the lasting signs of its destruction and renovation, and the memorials of the equally fluctuating condition of the organic world. They may be regarded, in short, as a symbolical language, in which the earth's autobiography is written. In the " Manual of Elementary Geology," on the other hand, I have treated briefly of the component materials of the earth's crust ...
54. Venus Before Exodus [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... .... In academic circles, Schaeffer's work has been studiously ignored, yet it is of momentous significance. Schaeffer found that the break at the end of the Early Bronze Age had occurred simultaneously, and he declared it the work of natural forces and, in particular, of earthquake. There was, of course, evidence of destruction by fire in many places, but this was supposed to have been man-made. I think we should examine this supposition further. I'll cite Troy and Alalakh as examples. At Troy, Schliemann described his Second City (the end Early Bronze, or IIg as it is now known) as having been destroyed in an intense conflagration. ...
55. Atlantis [Journals] [Pensee]
... a lunar rather than solar calendar to the Egyptians. While there seems to be no substantial evidence supporting such a view (3 ), this did not prevent the Spanish chronicler Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa in 1572 and Olaf Rudbeck of Sweden in 1675 from suggesting 1320 B.C . and 1226 B.C ., respectively, for the destruction of Atlantis; (4 ). A variation on this theme was broached in this century by Comyns Beaumont, who sought to change 9000 years to 9000 months (750 years) and came up with ca. 1342 B.C . for the termination of Atlantis (5 ). Velikovsky, on the other hand, introduced a ...

... of "suns."(2 ) The Water Sun (or Sun of Waters) was the first age, terminated by a deluge in which almost all creatures perished; the Earthquake Sun or age perished in a terrific earthquake when the earth broke in many places and mountains fell. The world age of the Hurricane Sun came to its destruction in a cosmic hurricane. The Fire Sun was the world age that went down in a rain of fire.(3 ) "The nations of Culhua or Mexico," Humboldt quoted Gómara, the Spanish writer of the sixteenth century, "believe according to their hieroglyphic paintings, that, previous to the sun which now enlightens them ...

From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Ignis E Coelo The destruction of the army of Sennacherib is described laconically in the Book of Kings: "And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the Lord went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred fourscore and five thousand; and when the people arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses. So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt in Nineveh." It is similarly described in the Book of Chronicles: "And the prophet Isaiah, the son of Amoz, prayed ...
