21. Applying the Revised Chronology [Journals] [Pensee]
... and his wife, Helen, is of the same date (79). Did the Greeks wait until the 500th anniversary of the Trojan War to honor their leaders? Why were 8th-7th-century objects placed in 13th-century tombs? Why were 13th-century rulers honored only ca. 700 B.C .? The explanation that it was not until then that Homer composed his extremely popular epic works about Trojan War heroes (80) overlooks the fact that most ancient sources believed that Homer lived at, or very shortly after, the time of Agamemnon, Menelaus, the Greek heroes, and the sack of Troy (81 ). At Mycenae, both within and beyond the citadel was, we ...
22. Velikovsky's "The Dark Age of Greece" [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... claim of the Egyptologists was founded." They could take some comfort in believing that dark ages also interrupted the history of other areas, such as Anatolia, but: No place did it create such discomfort as in Hellenic history....The Hellenic Age is ushered in by the sudden and bright light of a literary creation- the Homeric epics, of perfect form, of exquisite rhythm, of a grandeur unsurpassed in world literature, a sudden sunrise with no predawn light in a previously dark world, with the sun starting its day at zenith- from almost  years that divide the end of the Mycenaean Age from the Hellenic Age, not a single inscription of ...
23. The Disastrous Love Affair of Moon and Mars [Books] [de Grazia books]
... and to Dr. Jay Lefer who responded keenly to the questions here raised in the field of psychiatry. Finally, I would acknowledge the inspiration afforded by my friend, the late Immanuel Velikovsky, who designated the Greek gods as sky-bodies threatening the Earth. INTRODUCTION The theory to be expressed here is hardly believable. We discern behind a famous Homeric scenario about the misconduct of the gods the shadow of a second scenario of astronomical catastrophe. By pursuing the connection relentlessly, many reasons are uncovered to suspect that the human drama is unconsciously imitating what the human eye witnessed as a prior catastrophe in the skies. Chant and catastrophe, dance and disaster seem to be historically linked. Can ...
24. Olympia [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. I No. 4 (Winter 1976) Home | Issue Contents Olympia Immanuel Velikovsky Copyright © 1976 by Immanuel Velikovsky "Olympia" is a section of the soon to be completed Volume II (The Time of Isaiah and Homer) of the series Ages in Chaos. The entire series will consist of four volumes (the other volumes, since sometime in printer's proofs, are titled Ramses II and His Time and Peoples of the Sea) ." Olympia" follows the section, "The Scandal of Enkomi" that was printed in Pensee X (Winter, 1974-75), pp. 21-23. Both of these sections were written more than a quarter ...
25. The Two Faces of Love [Books] [de Grazia books]
... story is not mentioned here, she is the mother of three children by Ares. She is one of the few ever to have expressed love for Ares, and in "The Battle of the Gods," in the Iliad, she goes to his aid in battle and is roundly smacked by the Goddess Athena. If we look into Homer for the precise astronomical referents of Ares, Aphrodite, Hephaestus and Athena, we are disappointed. Homer does not say that the three sky bodies - planet mars, Moon, and planet Venus are represented by them, not in the Iliad, nor the Odyssey, nor in the Love Affair. How then are we to assure ourselves ...
26. Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning [Books]
... the Circle of Little Animals, the signs before Libra was introduced being all of living creatures. The German Thierkreis has the same signification. Proclus of our 5th century called it the Oblique Circle, that originally was for the ecliptic; but with Aratos, who regarded the claws as distinct from Scorpio, it was the Twelve Images. As Homer and Hesiod made no allusion to it, we may consider as in some degree correct the statement that another poet, Cleostratos of Tenedos, made it known in Greece about 500 B.C ., from his observations on Mount Ida. In Rome it commonly was Zodiaous; the Orbis qui Graece ze, acarcos dicitur of Cicero's De ...
27. On Dating the Trojan War [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the Lydians made about themselves , the figures look authentic enough. And they wholly support the argument that 33 years (let alone 40) is an excessive estimate. The average which these actual figures yield is 23 years. There is also a third consideration bearing on the date of the Trojan War, namely the period when Homer composed the Iliad. Rohl outlined in his article why this is still a somewhat vexed question. While most scholars place Homer in the eighth century, the war and the Bronze Age with which Homer shows such a close acquaintance are placed in the thirteenth or early twelfth century, separated from the poet by a vast, Lethean Dark Age ...
28. Aphrodite The Moon or Venus? (Continued) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... events, battles, and decisions of leaders. Whole sections of the Iliad are devoted to the warring of the gods. On the Achaean side there range Athena, Hera, Poseidon, Hephaestus. On the Trojan side, the line-up includes Ares, Aphrodite, and Apollo. The victory is with the Achaeans an their gods, although the Homeric element ends with Achilles' killing of Hector, the burial of Hector, and a mere pause in the struggle; however, all known versions of the rest of the story, occupying the tenth year, agree that the Achaeans "won the war" and razed Troy. Some of this is reported in the Odyssey , by Demodocus ...
29. The Spring Of Ares [Journals] [Kronos]
... . But if, as I have suggested.(1a) Kadmos was originally a Theban god analogous to Dionysus, who was also associated with Ares, the added association of Kadmos with the same Ares raises fundamental questions concerning the origins of Greek religion and myth.(9 ) That Ares was originally a celestial body is suggested by a Homeric hymn in which the god is described as a fiery sphere among the planets.(3 ) This fiery nature links Ares to Mars, described as the fiery planet par excellence in both Babylonian and Greek astronomy. And, in fact, this identification was made by the Greeks themselves as early as the fifth century B.C . ...

Achilles might be addressed as "strength of Achilles." The words sthenos, is, menos, bia, each meaning force of some kind, are used, also kara and kephale, head. The Latin word vis, strength or quantity, suggests that a digamma ...
