61. Fomenko and English History [Journals] [SIS Review]
... that Dionysius Exiguus was an alter ego of Dionysius Petavius, despite the fact that the latter worked in France, not Italy. His claim that Petavius, together with Joseph Justus Scaliger, played a major role in establishing our present system of chronology is difficult to reconcile with the fact that he was born in 1583, the year after the Roman church replaced the Julian calendar with the Gregorian one which is still in use today. The vast majority of scholars also accept that the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles were compiled, in Old English, at the command of King Alfred the Great, around 892 AD, making use of use of Bede's Ecclesiastical History, Latin annals, genealogies, lists of ...

... three parts are considered separately. She argues that the entire Gudrun Epic has a sound historical basis and that all specific places mentioned can be found where expected geographically, though their distribution covers a large geographic area. She has identified and visited the numerous places named in the tales and has traced the specific period of Gudrun's life in relation to Roman history. Of special interest here is the role of community folklore in maintaining the continuity and accuracy of oral traditions of ancient cultures. Wiencke-Lotz presents insight into how this occurs by sharing her own observations and participation in European community folklore-telling sessions which recounted versions of the Gudrun Epic. Each of eight clans originally involved played different roles in the ...

... on the close connection between the Latin "pons", a bridge and "pontus", the deep, and that all important name "Pontifex Maximus", as old as history in its origin. Then, too, the well known fact yet unexplained, that among all peoples bridges were sacred. In the most ancient times the Romans sacrificed on the holy bridge of the Tiber. They were held sacred because the original "bridge" was the vast "floating", "revolving", "trembling" canopy of celestial vapors. O'Neil derives Pontifex from Pontufax which suits me well, for that is pontus and fax and that is the "flaming or shining deep ...

The Thunder god slew it with a bolt and left its body floating on the water like a chain of rocky spurs.[17] When the Romans came to name the planet of the morning and evening star, they called it Venus, for reasons little known, since on the one hand Venus is thought to have been a minor Italian goddess and, on the other hand, Cicero was probably wrong in saying the name came from the word venire (to come)[18 ...

... of the kingdom- a power that transcended the mundane. With it, the populace could be awed into obedient submission and the prevailing rule of an individual perpetuated. Without it, the structure of monarchical power could not be sustained and was doomed to collapse for lack of charismatic support. This enables us to better understand the attitude of the Roman Emperors toward Christianity. It was the concepts and ideals of the latter, based upon a Judaic foundation, which challenged the political power of the former; and this could not be tolerated. One author best summed up this problem as follows: King-worship came to be an integral feature in Hellenistic culture. Meanwhile on the east coast of ...

... his people, the Jews. He is always cited as an authority in all ancient Egyptian accounts, and he is the only original source of both Ancient Jewish and Egyptian history. Josephus is also important for biblical history, as he sets the time of Hebrew enslavement. An educated man, a man of high standing, respected by the Romans, Josephus is referred to as the first Jewish historian, indeed, the Father of Jewish history. In the impending conflict with the Roman invaders Josephus tried to dissuade his countrymen from fighting, because losses would be enormous and the Jews could not win. In going over to the side of the Romans he lost the respect of the ...

... . He seems to have simply translated the Latin of Gildas in The Ruin of Britain, (which he used extensively), tyrannos superbus becoming Vortigern, the Welsh term for tyrant'. It is unclear exactly who Gildas meant by the term, as it is not a personal name. A succession of petty emperors ruled Britain after the Roman withdrawal in the early 5th century AD. Bede decided to pinpoint and date the tyrant of Gildas, by means of Agitius, to the mid 5th century AD and used this speculative date as the means to anchor a Saxon rebellion and conquest of what became England. Subsequently, every English history book seems to have quoted Bede as an ...
