... as inventor of the Dodecatemory divisions; and both Berosus [Berossus as now written, the Chaldaean historian of about 260 B.C .] and Josephus declare that Abraham was famous for his celestial observations, and even taught the Egyptians. As to this last people, while our twelve figures appear on the Denderah planisphere doubtless from Greek or Roman influence, we have little knowledge as to what was the zodiac of their native astronomy, although it perhaps represented their twelve chief divinities; and Saint Clement tells us that the White, or Sacred, Ibis, Ibis aethiopica or religiosa, was its emblem. The Jesuit Father Athanasius Kircher,4 1612-1680, has left to us its ...

... success, and became the prince of his own people by their own free consent, and then died, leaving the government to Judas, his eldest son. 4. Now Judas, supposing that Antiochus would not lie still, gathered an army out of his own countrymen, and was the first that made a league of friendship with the Romans, and drove Epiphanes out of the country when he had made a second expedition into it, and this by giving him a great defeat there; and when he was warmed by this great success, he made an assault upon the garrison that was in the city, for it had not been cut off hitherto; so he ejected ...

... of what and where the original Paradise was, people from most religious traditions regarded it as an earthly region of eternal bliss. Its legendary location was not a secret: Paradise was believed to be situated across the Great Sea. Asians looked eastward to the rising sun and believed that the "Isle of Immortals" was in that direction. Romans, Egyptians, and Greeks looked westward to the setting sun and believed that the "Fortunate Isles" would be found somewhere across the Atlantic Ocean. It was not, therefore, the location of Paradise that was in doubt; the principal concern had to do with worthiness. According to most religious beliefs, this sanctuary from the tribulations ...

... during the troubles which preceded the establisoment of the new order of things in the Empire of the Rising Sun. Mr. O'Neill published A Firstjtz ,panese Book, which has been of great use to students. It is a translation of one of the Buddhist discourses of Kiu-d.(Kiza-B-Dow-a) with notes' and the original rendered into Roman characters. This field of Oriental research led naturally in after years to a study of Chinese and some slight acquaintance with the .thousands of.ideagraphs which enable that ingenious people to dispense with an alphabet. In this branch of study Mr. O'Neill was greatly indebted to Professor Gustav Ybtenaoir of the Author. Schlegel, of the Leyden ...

FROM THE DEPARTURE OUT OF BABYLON TO FADUS, THE ROMAN PROCURATOR.CHAPTER 1.HOW CAIUS (1 ) WAS SLAIN BY CHEREA. 1. NOW this Caius (2 ) did not demonstrate his madness in offering injuries only to the Jews at Jerusalem, or to those that dwelt in the neighborhood; but suffered it to extend itself through all the earth and sea, so far as was in subjection to the Romans, and filled it with ten thousand mischiefs; so many indeed in number as no former history relates. But Rome itself felt the most dismal effects of what ...

... contemporary German science; and, tragically for all, the entire scenario was subsequently played out as though it were some depraved and overly long Wagnerian opera. (44) And, towering over this entire landscape, the commanding figure of a person named Adolf Hitler held sway. Hitler with Mussolini. The Fascist and Nazi salutes closely correspond to Roman gestures of prayer or respect, recalling Imperial modes of address and protection. The fact that Hitler's father Alois gave himself the name Hitler in place of Schicklgruber and instead of Heidler, or some other variant form of the family name, may have had no special significance to him beyond pragmatic considerations. But it certainly did for his son ...

... Fell had a remarkable talent for recognising the relationships between the signaries involved, many of which stemmed from diverse origins. Therefore we must ask if this is true of Fell's work on the apparent Old World marks on some of Comalcalco's bricks, for a large part of the concept of a possible Old World intrusion at Comalcalco rests on this. Roman Masons' Marks (signatures)In 1990, Fell undertook further analyses of certain designs at Comalcalco [15] in which he claimed that Roman masons' marks' existed on a percentage of the Comalcalco bricks. He compiled a chart comparing the Comalcalco brick markings with those on bricks from the Roman Empire. Fig. 4 is a ...

18. The Saturn Problem [Journals] [SIS Review]
... appreciate the vital importance of the Sun, or its nightly counterpart, the Moon, would be absurd. Yet religions in which the Sun or Moon certainly played the central role - as king' or queen' of the gods - are curiously uncommon, especially before the first century AD. Of the old pagan religions, that of the Romans is probably the most familiar - indeed, we still use the divine names which the Romans gave to the planets. The planet Saturn they associated with a complex figure described by the Oxford Classical Dictionary as one of the most puzzling gods in Roman cult' [1 ]. Unlike the other deities, Saturn had few temples and, ...

... prevent London north and south, east and west from being drowned. If a tidal wave should be raised in the North Sea nothing could avoid a great flood with a destruction in life and property too appalling to contemplate, and the lower the resisting level of the Embankment the greater the apprehension. There seems to be little doubt but that Roman London was drowned, probably in the period between AD 457 and 596, during which time Londinium disappeared from human ken, and some believe that the streets were deserted, with brambles trailing over the ruined palaces and grass growing over the wharves and streets. (D . Mortimer Wheeler in Roman London, published by the Royal Commissioner on ...

... . In Greek, chthon is the earth, Gaia is the goddess in the earth. The snake was seen in the sky as a dragon, and was associated with radiation and its effects, but it was also a creature living in holes in the ground, and snake tubes were incorporated in Cretan houses where the snake was like the Roman genius, guardian of the household. We have suggested that the Egyptian ka was an electrical aura or halo round a person, especially round the head, the electrical headquarters. It was associated with health and life, and appears in the Greek greeting chaire! chairete! Hail! Raise the ka! [airo = raise]. ...
