101. The Dawn of Astronomy: A Study of the Temple-Worship and Mythology of the Ancient Egyptians [Books]
... , I should guess, 600 yards. Site of S. pylon to obelisk, 106 ½ mag. bearing = 16 ½ S. of E. Pole of N. pylon to obelisk, 109 ½ mag. bearing = 19 ½ S. of E. So I think probably the remaining obelisk is the northern one (cf. Homer, Phil. Trans., ' MDCCCLV., pp. 124 and 131), and the temple axis was directed 289 ½ mag. bearing with corr. 5 ½ =284 = 14 N. of West true amplitude." 2. Amenemat I., the founder of the sanctuary of the sun, entreats, after ...

103. The Founding of Rome [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VI:1 (Jan 1984) Home | Issue Contents The Founding of Rome Alfred de Grazia See Note 1. For some time now, the founding of Rome has been accredited to truculent Latin rustics lost in the miasma of 8th century history. The more glorious legend of its establishment by Homeric heroes, particularly Aeneas, Prince of Troy, has been in abeyance. In the light of recent theory and newly uncovered fact, however, the two stories can be blended into a credible account. To suggest the new history is my purpose here. To begin with, I would allude to two larger ideas which we shall be carrying into ...
... Sampo, one is entitled to ask: does all this make much sense by itself? Is it relevant at all beyond literary history? Comparetti, the great old scholar who in the last century tackled the difficult study of Finnish poetry, set himself a neat and classic philological question. Would it help us to understand the birth of the Homeric poems? Yes, he says. Yet he admits that the Homeric question remains open. In other words, the famous "commission of Orphic and Pythagorean experts set up by Pisistratus to collect the scattered rhapsodies" can hardly have produced by itself any more than Lonnrot could, such works as the Iliad and the Odyssey. Hence in ...
105. The Velikovsky Archive [Journals] [Aeon]
... version that had been withheld from publication as an article. [5 ] The Assyrian Conquest is basically an expanded version of this article. At times, Velikovsky had considered publishing this material together with the contents of The Dark Age of Greece (see #5 below) as a single volume under the title of The Time of Isaiah and Homer. He, however, considered this plan as inferior and only to be adopted in the event that he did not have time to complete the series in sufficient detail. Velikovsky worked on this book more than on any other during the last years of his life. Sections of this work include "The Siloam aqueduct," "The ...
106. A Fire not Blown [Books]
... to the Sibyl's Rock, a rock which may have been chosen by the Sibyl Herophyle because it was split, and showed a difference of electrical potential, presumably as a result of an earthquake. Q-CD vol. 13, A Fire Not Blown, Ch. 16: The Dance 96 DANCING WITH KNIVES In the dance at Knosos described by Homer, the young men carry sacrificial knives, Greek machaira. The Cretan sikinnis was a dance in honour of Sabazios [Dionysus], danced by satyrs. The root skn means knife. EPILEPSY Epilepsy was a sacred disease. The jerky movements of a sufferer in a fit led to the belief that an external power was in control of ...
107. The Sulfur Connection [Journals] [Kronos]
... 1848, what appeared as "two wheels of fire" barely missed a ship at sea. As they approached, "an awful crash took place" while "the topmasts were shivered to pieces". A strong sulfurous odor followed.(6 ) The above is of additional interest because it compares somewhat favorably with an event described by Homer: "Then Zeus let fly with his thunderbolts, and the ship went round and round, and was filled with fire and brimstone [which is sulfur] as the lightning struck it."(7 ) In September of 1892, lightning struck the church at Altenmarkt, near Furstenfeld. The congregation panicked and rushed out even though ...
108. Heracles as Cross-Dresser [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon Volume VI, Number 4 Home | Issue Contents Heracles as Cross-Dresser Ev Cochrane Heracles is a hero to whom all sorts of bizarre traditions have attached themselves. Indeed, the Greek strongman seems to embody a wealth of contradictions. Most familiar as the invincible champion of the gods, Homer described Heracles as a malicious force oppressing Olympus. Although typically described as a giant- his prodigious weight is said to have all but sunk the Argo- Heracles is elsewhere represented as a dwarf. Scholars investigating such incongruous traditions have typically assumed that originally independent tales have coalesced around the popular Greek hero. In my various studies on Heracles, in contrast, I have suggested that ...

... has not yet been found in the centers of the bronze civilization: Cyprus, Egypt, or Greece. It was imported from afar for making bronze.6 Ezekiel (27:12) says that the maritime people of Tyre traded in tin which they brought from Tarshish. Tin is mentioned earlier by Isaiah7 and is repeatedly referred to by Homer.8 Herodotus told of its being imported into Greece, and the "tin islands" probably signify the British Isles.9 Posidonius in the second century before this era referred to the Iberian Peninsula as the mining source of imported tin;10 so did Pliny, and Diodorus told of its being mined in Cornwall.11 In the ...
110. Troy. Ch.12 The Ruins Of The East (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... Schliemann took the rich city on the second lowest level to be the Troy of King Priam, which endured the siege and then succumbed to the Greeks, or Achaeans, warriors under Agamemnon. Later scholars have identified the second city as of a much earlier date, and declared the sixth city from the bottom to be that of Priam and Homer. The second city came to an end at the time the Old Kingdom of Egypt fell; it was destroyed in a violent paroxysm of nature. The archaeological expedition of Cincinnati University under Carl Blegen has established that an earthquake destroyed the city besieged by Agamenmon.2 Claude Schaeffer, the excavator of Ras Shamra (Ugarit) in Syria ...
