51. Forum: Do the Early Middle Ages Survive Only as a Sacred Cow? C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... U. Niemitz was first to tackle this [14, 15], followed by others such as G. Heinsohn . With Gerhard Anwander, I am now checking all of Bavaria to determine contradictions between written sources and actual preserved settlement remains . Bavaria is eminently suitable for such a study because it contains both Roman and non-Roman areas and has been extensively excavated. The first result is that there are around 2000 localities mentioned in written sources. Only just over 100 have any remains that scholars call Carolingian, only some 5 per cent. When these attributions are examined, it turns out that most of the dates are derived from written documents and not ...
52. The Periodic Cyclicism Of Ancient Catastrophes [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... it is the first day of spring, and to Israelis it is the anniversary of their Day of Independence, the night when Moses led the Hebrew slaves out of the land of Egypt. March 21 was also a date of destruction and chaos, of diastrophism and catastrophism, in ancient Rome. It was their "Tubulustrium". The Romans feared Mars to the point that Mars veneration dominated Roman religion for 1,000 years. In Latin, tubicen means "trumpeter", tubulatus means "hallowed", and tuburcinor means "to devour". Tubulustrium is cognate with many English words relating to trouble. Included are trepidation, trespass, trial, trumpeter, tumble, ...
53. The Egyptian Prince Moses [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... in the near background. The author of Jubilees claimed to be the Angel of Presence. But when we bring him down to a human level we find he was a contemporary of another Jew called Artapanus, who boldly stated that Moses was none other than Hermes, the great Egyptian intellectual who was so highly admired and honored by Greeks and Romans alike. Indeed, the ancient rabbis would have found Jews saying that if Moses as Hermes honored the "gods" of the Gentiles, then why could not we later Jews do the same? At any rate, the author of Jubilees, who represented himself as the Angel of Presence, built an impeccable image for Moses and, ...
54. A Fire not Blown [Books]
... as a lightning symbol. Probably the intention was that the lightning, heavenly fire, would give life to the crops. The Latin for to plough, aro, recalls the Latin ara, Etruscan ar, divine fire, which was attracted to the altar. Minos himself was the son of Zeus and Europa. He married Pasiphae. The Roman poet Horace describes him as: "Jovis arcanis Minos admissus", Minos, privy to the secrets of Jupiter. Minos and the nymph Paria had sons, who colonised the island of Paros. According to Herodotus, Minos lived three generations before the Trojan war, and Thucydides refers to his suppression of piracy and expulsion of the Karians ...
55. The Secret of Baalbek (Concluded) [Journals] [Kronos]
... Richter in 1822(1 ) and S. Wolcott in 1843(2 ) drew attention to the fact that the quaders of the wall of the temple area of the acropolis of Baalbek have the same form as the quaders of the Temple of Solomon, namely, of the surviving western (outer) wall, or Wailing Wall. The Roman architects, wrote Wolcott, never built foundations or walls of such stones; and of the Israelite period it is especially the age of Solomon that shows this type of stone shaping (chiseling). The photograph of the outer wall of Baalbek's temple area illustrates that the same art of chiseling was employed in the preparation of stones for its ...
56. The Lord Of Light [Journals] [Aeon]
... the Restorer of Light'." (20) The dove was also the symbol of Astarte, the divine consort of Adonis and goddess of the planet Venus. (21) Like Tammuz, Adonis has been identified with the planet Saturn. (22) Jesus, Dionysus, and Horus The Greek god Dionysus, the counterpart of the Roman Bacchus, was also the equivalent of the Nabataean deity Dusura or Dusares. (23) Dusares and the goddess Allat- who is to be identified with the goddesses Athena and Ishtar and the planet Venus (24)- are an Arabian reflex of Tammuz and Ishtar. Elsewhere, the names Beltis and the Chaldean "Bacchus" have ...
57. Moderating the Middle Ages [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Scalliger and Petavius (himself suggested as the original from whom Dionysius Exiguus was duplicated 1,000 years earlier). Applying his methods of reconstruction gave Fomenko no duplicates of events from 1300 to 1900, which period he therefore passes as authenticated. An example he gives is of Troy and Rome, through to the Habsburg rule in the Holy Roman Empire. Were any Trojan records actually recovered when Schliemann discovered Troy, or do we rely on the Greek account of their history? Fomenko gives the time of the Trojan kingdom as 1460-1263 BC - 224 years, the rule of 7 kings (the 7 hills upon which Rome was built) and compares it to Rome's regal period ( ...

... to prosecute their law-suits, by the ill usage of the judges, upon their holy days, and were deprived of the money they used to lay up at Jerusalem, and were forced into the army, and upon such other offices as obliged them to spend their sacred money; from which burdens they always used to be freed by the Romans, who had still permitted them to live according to their own laws. When this clamor was made, the king desired of Agrippa that he would hear their cause, and assigned Nicolaus, one of his friends, to plead for those their privileges. Accordingly, when Agrippa had called the principal of the Romans, and such of ...
60. Twelfth Or Fourth Century?. Part I Ch.1 (Peoples of the Sea) [Velikovsky]
... of his reign was the successful opposition to the armies coming from the north. In their sweep of conquest, the northern hordes came to the very gates of Egypt, the greatest and most glorious of kingdoms. In all ages conquerors have made Egypt their goal-Esarhaddon and Assurbanipal the Assyrians, Cambyses the Persian, Alexander the Macedonian, Pompey the Roman, Omar the Arab, Selim the Turk, and Napoleon; and some unidentified leader or group of leaders, before any of these, led armed troops to drink water from the Nile. But Ramses III rose to the occasion. He battled the invaders on land and sea and turned back the tide that threatened to envelop Egypt. ...
