151. The Saturn Problem [Journals] [SIS Review]
... (see later). In the 6th century BC, the last king of Babylonia, Nabonidus, made an attempt to elevate the Moon-god (Sin) to the top of the divine hierarchy and he rebuilt Sin's temples in the provinces at the expense of the Marduk cult in Babylon [6 ]. When he lost his throne to the Persians in 539BC, the victors legitimised their conquest by presenting themselves as the restorers of the rites of Marduk. Rivalries between different political centres and their long-established cults may explain many such religious struggles. (Amun and Marduk were the gods of Thebes and Babylon, sites of the most powerful Egyptian and Babylonian temples respectively.) Yet they do ...
152. Ages in Chaos in the Light of C14 Archaeometry [Journals] [Pensee]
... XXVth Dynasties, the total span of which is reduced to 150 years instead of the commonly accepted 280 years. The XXIst Dynasty is seen as preceding and overlapping the XXth Dynasty which, in turn, is considered to be identical with the XXIXth and XXXth Dynasties. Throughout the entire period, only the brief Ethiopian XXVth Dynasty and the two Persian regencies of the XXVIIth and XXXIst Dynasties are correctly ordered and placed in the conventional chronology. Velikovsky supports this drastic restructuring and telescoping of Egyptian history by offering detailed lines of evidence extending in Volume I of Ages in Chaos through five successive parallel generations of rulers in Egypt and Palestine. The full exposition of the remainder of the work still ...

... in southern Mesopotamia and demonstrated how the stratigraphy actually verified his ideas. In both cases the chronology had been enormously extended by the interposition of hiati'. Investigation, however, showed that there were no physical hiati; they had been inferred from the known' chronology! A significantly lacking stratum at sites such as these is that of the Persians who historically came immediately before the Hellenist culture. In the relevant stratigraphical position instead are found the Old Babylonians in the south and the Middle Assyrians in the north. Heinsohn therefore equated these with Persian satrapies and the Old Akkadians-Hyksos would then fall into place as the pre-Median Assyrians mentioned by Herodotus. Gunnar wound up his talk with an overview ...
154. An Answer to the Critics of Ramses II and His Time [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... after Merneptah . Let us now suppose for a minute that Velikovsky was correct in placing Merneptah in the mid-6th century. The first Osorkon would therefore have flourished near the end of the 4th century - in fact, right at the beginning of the Ptolemaic epoch. The priest-kings of the 21st Dynasty, which Velikovsky placed in the Persian and Ptolemaic ages, were buried in the same temple-precinct at Tanis as kings named Osorkon and Shoshenq. Psusennes, who bore the Persian title Shahedet, or Shahdidit (king's retainer') , was interred next to a king named Sosenk-heka-kheper-re. This otherwise unknown' monarch was buried (as was Psusennes) with artifacts inscribed ...
155. Ramses II and his Time by Immanuel Velikovsky [Books]
... Museum, Mr. Etienne Drioton, wrote to the author: "You certainly overturn- and with what zest!-many of our historical assumptions which we have considered established. But you do it with total absence of prejudice and with impartial and complete documentation, all of which is most sympathetic." Peoples of the Sea, covering the Persian domination of Egypt and the conquest by Alexander, was published in 1977 and caused much discussion among Egyptologists. Dr. David Lorton, research fellow in Egyptology at Johns Hopkins University, wrote: "I can testify that anyone wishing to attack it will have a very difficult job." Now the series is enriched by a volume of ...

The Persian satrap, who could not depend on the people of Egypt, offered no resistance. The population received Alexander jubilantly.

159. Joseph and Imhotep (Letters) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Catastrophism and Ancient History XIV:2 (July 1992) Home | Issue Contents Letter Joseph and Imhotep John W. Hand & R.M . Porter Dear Sir: Regarding Mr. Jesse E. Lasken's comments on my identification of Joseph with Imhotep, the following rejoinder is offered. Lasken calls attention to inscriptions of the architect of the Persian period, Khnum-ab-ra, with which I am ignorant. Since my dating is dependent on radiocarbon analysis (uncorrected for tree-ring matching which I believe to be flawed), it would interest me greatly to learn how many generations intervened between Imhotep and Khnum-ab-ra. If the number is on the order of 60 or less, then this would give ...

... a deity. It is also interesting to note that Mizpah is a site where the dates are creeping downwards. Zorn's item on Nasbeh in the New Encyclopedia of Archaeological Excavations in the Holy Land (Vol. 3 pp. 1098-1102) dated Stratum 2 to the Babylonian period, whereas the new BAR article extends the date through most of the Persian period to c. 400 BC. Unfortunately the hoped for archive at Hazor has not yet materialised but they did turn up a life-size stone lion, apparently the twin of one discovered in Yadin's excavations 40 years ago. The lions probably stood at an entrance to the Late Bronze palace. Jezreel The third and last of the preliminary reports ...
