1. The Homeric Question [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1996:1 Home | Issue Contents The Homeric Question by Benny J. Peiser I have looked deeply into the question of Hesiod's date and Homer's, but it is no pleasure to me to write about it, being too aware of the extraordinary censoriousness of people in general, and most of all of those who have always opposed me in questions of poetry'. (Pausanias IX:30,3 ) The so-called Homeric Question', which has been hotly debated by scholars for many centuries, is one of the most controversial subjects in ancient history. Like critical research on the Hebrew Bible, research on Homer concerns ancient texts, ...
2. The Relevance Of The Velikovsky Scenario To The Homeric Question [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 4 No 2 (1998) Home | Issue Contents The Relevance Of The Velikovsky Scenario To The Homeric Question Hugo Meynell One of the most interesting applications of Velikovsky's revised chronology is to the Homeric question. In the conventional view, if there ever was a Homer, he must have lived and worked anywhere between the thirteenth century BCE, one or two generations after the Trojan War, if there was one, or if there was only one-to half a millennium later. In Velikovsky's view, where the half millennium in question does not exist, and the Trojan War occurred in the last half of the eighth or early in the seventh century,1 ...
3. Homer in the Baltic [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon VI:6 (Dec 2001) Home | Issue Contents Homer in the Baltic Felice Vinci Summary The real scene of the Iliad and the Odyssey can be identified, not in the Mediterranean Sea where it proves to be undermined by many incongruities, but in the north of Eur-ope. The sagas that gave rise to the two poems came from the Baltic regions, where the Bronze Age flourished in the 2nd millennium bc, and many Homeric places, such as Troy and Ithaca, can still be identified. The blond seafarers who founded the Mycenaean civilization in the 16th century bc brought these tales from Scandinavia to Greece after the decline of the "climatic optimum. ...

5. Homeric Troy and the Greek Dark Age [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1990 (Vol XII) Home | Issue Contents Homeric Troy and the Greek Dark Age by Dwardu Cardona Dwardu Cardona is Senior Editor of Kronos and Founding Father (in absentia) of the Canadian Society for Interdisciplinary Studies. His writings have appeared in many publications including Topper, The Ubyssey, Pensee, Kronos, The Sourcebook Project, UFO Report, Frontiers of Science, C & AH, CSIS Newsletter, Aeon, and both C&C Workshop and Review. 1. Introduction I am as anxious as David Rohl to rid ancient Greece of its troublesome Dark Age. His proposed series of essays on early Greek history in relation to the ...
... of the Abode of the Dead, the character and position of the Cosmical Tree, the course of the backward-flowing Ocean-river, the correlation of the " Navels " of Earth and Heaven, not to enumerate other points, can hardly fail to attract the lively attention of all students and teachers of ancient mythology and mythical geography. To teachers of Homer the fresh contributions toward a right understanding of Homeric cosmology are sure to prove of value. And if, in the end, the work may only lead to a systematic and intelligent teaching of the long neglected, but most important science of ancient cosmology and mythical geography in all reputable universities and classical schools, it will surely not have ...
7. Crazy Heroes of Dark Times [Books] [de Grazia books]
... long story, whose irrelevance is only seeming. Professor Denys Page refers to it significantly as "a brilliant piece of late Ionian composition, but it has a continuous pedigree ascending to the Mycenaean era."[7 ] That is, ascending 400 years or so, by his reckoning; by mine, Nestor was a Mycenean in the Homeric Age of 800 to 650 B.C . When Nestor was a child, Hercules had descended upon Pylos and a battle of the gods ensued. Hercules and Athena were on one side, while Ares was on the other, and Hercules bested Ares. "Herakles had come in his strength against us and beaten us in the years ...
8. When Was The iliad Created?, Part 2 Mars Ch.3 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents When Was The iliad Created?A mighty strife had waxen great Within the members of the sphere. -EMPEDOCLES1 To this day it has not been established at what date the Iliad and Odyssey were composed. Even ancient authors differed greatly in reckoning the time when Homer lived. It was estimated to be as late as -685 (the historian Theopompus) and as early as -1159 (certain authorities quoted by Philostratus). Herodotus wrote that "Homer and Hesiod" created the Greek pantheon "not more than 400 years before me," which would mean not prior to -884, -484 being regarded as ...
9. The Historicity of the Homeric Poems and Traditions [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1989 (Vol XI) Home | Issue Contents Essay One: The Historicity of the Homeric Poems and Traditions Essays on Early Greek History in the light of the New Chronology by David Rohl David Rohl is currently studying for his degree in Ancient History and Egyptology at University College, London. The Director of the Institute for the Study of Interdisciplinary Sciences and Editor of the Journal of the Ancient Chronology Forum, he is an authority on the New Chronology'.

10. The Uses of Language [Books] [de Grazia books]
... than the other feet; they often embrace a "caesura," a pause or rhythmic division of the melody of the line. "All methods of imposing an order upon discourse by means of rhythm... are on a lower level, from the point of view of metric, than the oldest type of Greek verse, the Homeric hexameter." [2 ] Unfortunately, little is known about the rhythmic feeling of these measures or how dynamic and tonal accents were introduced as well. Furthermore, "we have no means of reading, reciting, or hearing Greek poetry as it actually sounded," [3 ] and can only form a shadowy notion of it ...
