11. KA [Books]
... a mortal, King Admetus, as was Herakles to Eurystheus and Omphale. Q-CD vol 12: KA, Ch. 5: Deities of Delphi 70 As the deity at Delphi, he shines rather than speaks. Sophocles, Oedipus Tyrannus 80, describes him as lampros, shining. His sister Artemis, called Loxo, is referred to by Homer as eustephanos, with beautiful crown [1 ], and in line 207 of the Oedipus Tyrannus: "the firebearing rays of Artemis with which she rushes across the mountains of Lycia." In line 186: "paian de lampei", the shout rings out (literally shines' or flashes'). Cassandra, captive at ...
12. Planetary Identities: II The Mythology of Homer [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1989 No 1 (May 1989) Home | Issue Contents Planetary Identities: II The Mythology of Homer by Dwardu Cardona 1. Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon This, the second part of my amiable debate with Chris Boyles turns now to some of his more specific objections. Concerning the planetary identifications I had earlier presented [1 ], Boyles has stated that my deductions are hardly proof of the origins of all deities' [2 ], but the truth is that I never presented my deductions' as such. Right from the start I was careful to stress that my deductions' concerned the major deities of the world's great pantheons ...

14. Aftermath of the Trojan War [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... dynasty had many problems with the invading Sea Peoples. A connection is usually made with the Greek heroes returning from Troy and with a tale told by Odysseus;[9 ] Greeks partaking in piracy would be very probable. Names like Aqaiwasha and Danuna from Egyptian sources, describing the invading Sea Peoples, can easily be explained with the names Homer uses when mentioning the Greeks- Achaioi and Danaoi. Concerning the Tjekker, another of the Sea Peoples, some scholars see a connection with Teucer and his men, the Teucri, who went to Cyprus and, according to the well known story of Wenamun's voyage, had occupied Dor, near Mount Carmel. If my ...
15. Troy and the Greek Dark Age [Journals] [Kronos]
... some of the topics that I discuss here in greater detail. [note by PJC - the Revised Chronology article mentioned above was written by Israel Issacson, not Schorr.] THE IDENTIFICATION OF TROY When Alexander crossed the Hellespont, setting foot in Asia for the first time, he paused briefly at what he believed to be the site of Homeric Ilion - the hill we know today as Hissarlik. A Greek and, after it, a Roman town named "Ilion" grew up on the site; and few ancient writers doubted that here once stood the "well-towered" citadel of Priam. The Roman geographer Strabo, however, questioned the identification, and brought many arguments to ...
16. In Defence of Higher Chronologies [Journals] [SIS Review]
... comparable lowering of the Mycenaean Age from where Velikovsky had it. Peiser puts the beginnings of Greek history in the early 6th century or so . Everything before that would be mythic', not historical. Thus Peiser argues against the historicity of the Olympic Era, said to have begun in -775. He also claims that the Homeric poems as we know them could be lowered to the early 5th century, or even later. 3. Heribert Illig and others have claimed that about 3 ½ centuries need to be removed from medieval history . This would also lower all of classical antiquity by a similar amount: the peoples of ancient Mesopotamia, Israel, ...
17. Trails Over the Sea. Part 2 (Oedipus and Akhnaton) [Velikovsky]
... it from Mycenae to Athens? Only fifty-five miles as the crow flies. If a signet of Queen Tiy reached Mycenae, her story would have reached it too, and the neighboring cities as well. As we have already said, the city on the Nile had been known to the Greeks by the name of Thebes since the time of Homer; the Egyptian name for it was No (the residence) or No-Amon. Then why did the Greeks call the city in Egypt by the name of the city in Boeotia? Or if, conversely, the Greeks first called the Egyptian city by that name and later transferred the name to the city in Boeotia, what was the ...
18. Holy Dreamtime [Books] [de Grazia books]
... ease. One would imagine that the story of an adulterous love triangle might have reminded him of his own plight - long away from his palace and beset by rumors of his wife's unfaithfulness. One might believe that the song was in bad taste, or that afterwards he might gnash his teeth and rend his garments. Not at all. Homer and he obviously did not feel any such connection between the performance and his plight. When the singer, Demodocus , "struck the chords in prelude," his audience was already entranced. He himself is blind; Homer, whose image he may reflect, is also called "the Blind." He is Homer's "good minstrel ...
19. Settled Sky and Unsettled Mind [Books] [de Grazia books]
... serious problems. One does relive the ancient terrors; they have left deep tracks in minds and glands, regularly revived by a horde of customs and rememorized. Furthermore, man is a myth-maker and he will always find sufficient personal and social crises to inspire individual and collective repressions of memory, though not on the original grand scale. WHAT HOMER REMEMBERED Earlier, we decided to place Homer's "publication" of the Odyssey around 630 B.C ., two generations after the end of the Martian catastrophes. We mentioned in another place that amnesia can set in abruptly following a grave event and the sublimation of the troublesome subconscious memory could be accomplished quickly as well. We alluded ...
20. Homer in the Baltic (Omero nel Baltico) by Felice Vinci (Book Review). C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2002:1 (Jul 2002) Home | Issue Contents Book Review Homer in the Baltic (Omero nel Baltico) by Felice Vinci Published by Fratelli Palombi Editori, Rome (2nd ed. 1998) ISBN 88-7621-211-6 Emmet J. Sweeney The title of this book explains the content. Basically Felice Vinci argues that all the action of the two Homeric epics, the Odyssey and the Iliad, took place in the Baltic and the North Atlantic. Furthermore, it is asserted that the Achaeans (Homer's Greeks) originated along the shores of the Baltic and took their myths and legends (already fully developed) southwards when they settled around the Aegean ...
