21. Philistines, Persians, and "Peoples of the Sea": A Problem of Ethnic Identity [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. II No. 4 (Summer 1977) Home | Issue Contents Philistines, Persians, and "Peoples of the Sea": A Problem of Ethnic Identity Roger W. Wescott Professor of Anthropology and Linguistics Drew University, Madison, N. J. In Peoples of the Sea,(1 ) Immanuel Velikovsky continues to stimulate his readers and to invite reconsideration of conventional historical assumptions. Among the most provocative of his reformulations of antiquity is his assertion that the PRST(2 ) who led the sea-borne assault on the Egypt of Ramses III were Persians rather than, as has generally been supposed, Philistines. In purely linguistic terms, there is little ...
22. The Dynasty Of Priests. Part 2 Ch.1 (Peoples of the Sea) [Velikovsky]
... it by several generations, actually past the time of Alexander. This being so, it appeared preferable not to deal with the two dynasties, partly contemporaneous, simultaneously, but to consider first the Twentieth, then the Twenty-first. This means, at least to some extent, going over the same ground twice, especially when dealing with the Persian succession. [1 ] "Egypt from the Death of Ramesses III to the End of the Twenty-first Dynasty," Cambridge Ancient History (Cambridge, 1975), Vol. II, Part 2, Chap. XXXV, p. 643. A Chimerical Millennium The Twenty-first Dynasty of Egypt is, on the accepted timetable, assigned to ...
23. Did the Achaemenids Ape the Assyrians? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the Assyrians?by Gunnar Heinsohn Around -440, Herodotus reported that mankind's first world power, the Achaemenid Empire stretching from Egypt to India ( -550 to -330), had its very centre in Assyria: In power the land of Assyria counts as one third of all Asia. Rule over this country - which rule is called by the Persians a satrapy - is of all the satrapies by far the greatest; for instance, when Tritantaechmes, the son of Artabazus, held this satrapy from the Great King, he received each day an artaba (55 pounds) full of silver' [1 ] (emphasis added). Mainstream Assyriology, however, claims that - after ...
24. A Critique of "Ramses II and His Time" [Journals] [SIS Review]
... appearing in the histories of Egypt under their native names (in the XIXth Dynasty) and again (in the XXVIth) under different names known to us from Greek and Hebrew sources. The rulers usually identified as those of the XXVIth and the XXXth Dynasties he regards as "squatters", minor kings or governors that really belong to the Persian period. However, a glance at the table below will show that in both cases the evidence for the conventional identifications is not to be dismissed lightly. For both dynasties there is a complete accord with regard to names, and almost perfect agreement for reign-lengths, between the information of the Greek, Biblical and Assyrian sources and the data ...
25. Distorting and Reconstructing the Past [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS "Ramessides, Medes and Persians" by Emmet J. Sweeney Ramessides, Medes, and Persians Sweeney 5 CHAPTER 1 DISTORTING AND RECONSTRUCTING THE PAST Stratigraphy and Chronology Since the scientific investigation of ancient times began, scholars have sought to make sense of the myriad kings, dynasties, and nations that the spade of the archaeologist and the skill of the epigraphist brought to light. The cuneiform literature of Mesopotamia revealed the existence of monarchs, nations, and civilisations previously unknown to history. Thus, in Lower Mesopotamia, which ancient writers named as the land of the Chaldaeans, a new and mysterious nation, whose language was unrelated to any other known, was discovered. Scholars ...
26. Epilogue to Ramessides, Medes and Persians [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS "Ramessides, Medes and Persians" by Emmet J. Sweeney Ramessides, Medes, and Persians Sweeney 107 EPILOGUE We have completed, in the foregoing pages, an enterprise that commenced in 1952, when Velikovsky's first volume of Ages in Chaos appeared in the bookshops. It is now perfectly clear why Velikovsky could not close the circle and complete his reconstruction: Always he came up against the apparently immutable measuring-rod of biblical chronology. No one at the time, least of all Velikovsky, imagined there would ever be a need to mount a challenge to that chronology. Yet in the present volume we have seen that the unquestioning acceptance of biblical timescales was probably, more than ...
27. Introduction to Ramessides, Medes and Persians [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS "Ramessides, Medes and Persians" by Emmet J. Sweeney 2 VELIKOVSKIAN Vol. V, No. 2 INTRODUCTION The work that follows should be regarded as simultaneously fulfilling two functions. On the one hand, it represents the completion of the task Immanuel Velikovsky set for himself in the Ages in Chaos series, an endeavour which spectacularly initiated the reconstruction of ancient history, but which left the task half-completed and the reader, as it were, dangling in mid-air. On the other hand, the work is intended to demonstrate how Gunnar Heinsohn's radically shortened chronology can be applied to the details of ancient Near Eastern history. In Ages in Chaos Velikovsky unveiled a detailed synchronisation ...
28. Are the Peleset Philistines or Persians? [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History III:2 (July 1981) Home | Issue Contents Are the Peleset Philistines or Persians?Donovan A. Courville It is generally accepted among archaeologists and historians that the chronology of Egypt has been settled as far back as c. 2000 B.C . and is immune to any further alterations in excess of about a decade. This concept was challenged by Immanuel Velikovsky in the mid 1950's in his Ages in Chaos. In this work he proposed alternate settings in the history of Egypt for the incidents of the exodus, the sacking of Solomon's temple, and the era of the Amarna Period. These altered placements called for a necessary chronological ...
29. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 2005:2 (May 2005) Home | Issue Contents Letters Dear Reader Emmet Sweeney is one of many people who have realised that if the chronology of Egypt is to be revised then that of the Assyrians, Babylonians and Persians may need to be revised too. He has in many ways developed his revision of these chronologies in a far more detailed way than most of the rival revisions, but that does not necessarily make his version correct. For instance, it is not clear how those kings of Israel recorded in the Assyrian inscriptions as having paid tribute to Assyrian kings could have done so if the dates of these kings are revised ...
30. Child of Saturn (Part IV) [Journals] [Kronos]
... their cosmogonical faith followed different routes and processes of evolution in the various regions within which they settled. The religious concepts of the indigenous populations, which they either conquered or assimilated, in turn infiltrated their original dogmas. Today there is little extant that can be considered common to the mythologies of the Indo-Aryans, the ancient Medes, and later Persians. Judging by Vedic (Indian) and Avestan (Persian) literature, the Aryans seem to have brought the worship of Indra, Mit(h )ra, Agni, and Soma with them. In the kingdom of the Mitanni, the gods Mit(h )ra, Varuna, Indra, and the Nasatyas were mentioned in ...
