The Gospel of Christian Humanism: Christianity Without God

by Arthur G Broadhurst

The Gospel of Christian Humanism will appeal to skeptics, agnostics, non-theists, liberal Christians or former Christians who have difficulty with the mythology and the concept of god in traditional Christian theology but find the life and ethical teachings of Jesus compelling as a way of life and a basis for ethics.The author maintains that Christian Humanism is essentially Christian, is justified on historical grounds, and is consistent with the teachings of Jesus and the early Church Fathers so far as we can determine with reasonable historical and literary accuracy. He argues for an approach to Christianity based on rational inquiry, human freedom, individual conscience, and a commitment to the values taught by Jesus as a guide to ethical decision-making; and further that these value...

The Grand Civilization, Ancient Egypt's Profound Mysteries: The Esoteric Sources of Their Knowledge

by M.G. Hawking

Penetrate one of the Great Mysteries of the Ages...Few mysteries have captured the fascination of enlightened minds so much as the epic civilization of Ancient Egypt. The "discovery" of Egypt is one of the most brilliant chapters in archaeology. The Middle Ages knew of Egypt only as a Roman colony; the Renaissance presumed that civilization had begun with Greece; even the Enlightenment knew nothing of Ancient Egypt beyond the Pyramids. Egyptology was a by-product of Napoleonic imperialism. When the Corsican led a French expedition to Egypt in 1798 he took with him scholars interested in Egypt for the sake of a better understanding of history. It was those men who returned home with the greatest mystery of the ages in their grasp, and first revealed the magnificent temples of Luxor and Karn...

Rivals in Blood

by David Galvin

The far off war horns of roman legions marching to battle won’t be heard from the Villa Juliana, but their coming together will have its repercussions as Britannia’s army is usurped by the rebel Magnentius and unless a ruling compromise is agreed with the legitimate emperor Constantius, citizen soldier will again face up to citizen soldier. None is forthcoming.Therefore, from the mosaic splendour of rural pagan life, the Briton Salvius Castus is unwittingly drawn into this struggle against his will. Fighting far from home and uncertain that he will ever return, what is to be left of his father in law’s promises for him? Will the cautious and politically sensitive Flavius Martinus rise up against the new order or will he too succumb? What of Salvius? What is he set to lose?...

Nara Japan, 767-770: A Translation from Shoku Nihongi

In 769 the Empress Shotoku received a report that the oracle of Hachiman in Kyushu had decreed that her Buddhist advisor, the priest Dokyo, should be made emperor.

Dokyo was exiled, and Empress Shotoku died in 770. Japan in the 8th century experienced sudden and intense economic and cultural growth. At the eastern terminus of the Silk Road, the islands participated in a cosmopolitan East Asian sphere, receiving new innovations in art, architecture, law, and religion from both Tang China and the Korean peninsula.

Khufu The Great Pyramid Conclusion The Search is Over

by Robert Crielly

The looting of pyramids and mastabas in Egypt was big business especially just after a Pharaoh was entombed with his enormous wealth in treasures. Historians tell us that looting was practiced at all levels of society and was not particularly regarded as a disgraceful occupation. The looters are thought to have held inside knowledge from having been involved in the construction of the tombs and at times they were even part of the funerary procession. Mummified Pharaohs bodies were stolen and sold to collectors or desecrated. Nothing was sacred.The Medjay had a job on their hands trying to maintain security and although they were feared by many, it didn’t stop robbers repeating raids on tombs as the rewards of their ill-gotten gains were very high indeed.The penalty for being caught ...

There was a time when other civilizations existed on Earth and they were different from us. Our civilization for several hundred years has formed a coherent scientific theory about the history of our planet.

This tourist destination is often one of the highest ranked on bucket lists, for how could one not want to experience its marvelous ruins, mirror-like rivers, and spectacular stretches of aqueducts firsthand?

And as one strolls through th...

The Macedonian Dynasty: From 867 to 1057 A.D

by Albert Vogt

 THE race of Leo the Isaurian, which in no inglorious fashion had filled the whole of the eighth and ninth centuries with its iconoclastic struggles, social reforms, and palace intrigues, nominally died out in 867 in the person of a debauched and incapable young Emperor, Michael III, known as the Drunkard. The man who in consequence ascended the throne by means of a crime, and founded the Macedonian dynasty, was Basil I. To study the personal character and home policy of the sovereigns directly or indirectly descended from him down to 1057, is, in effect, to depict the leading aspects of the period, save for the ever-present struggle for existence against external foes......

by Captivating History

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Hellenistic Age, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!The alienation of the people from the government and society itself can be seen as a result of the Hellenistic transformation. It can also be seen within the art of the period. Scholars, artists, and philosophers began rejecting the collective ideals, and instead, they focused on the cult of the individual. Sculptures were no longer that of gods and ideals but of individuals, and philosophers cultivated the ideas of individual happiness and pleasure. Religious cults, such as the cult of Isis, formed around the same concepts, claiming to offer the secret of immortality and prosperity to those who sought it for themselves.The Hellenistic age brought a great deal of change in ...

The Ghost of Rome: Volume I - The Gothic Wars

by Virgil Cain

It was famously stated by the English philosopher Thomas Hobbes that “the Papacy is not other than the ghost of the deceased Roman Empire, sitting crowned upon the grave thereof”.“The Ghost of Rome” explores that concept in detail, utilizing a character-driven narrative to bring life to the final years of the greatest empire the world has ever known. It is the rare work of fiction that informs even as it entertains, illuminating an era that is often derided as the decline of an empire rather than the birth of a kingdom.As Rome fell into disrepair, the Kingdom of Christ emerged. It was a transition so seamless that one can only be intrigued by the machinations that allowed the improbable rise of Christianity from a lone hilltop in Judea to conquer the Roman world inside of 350 yea...

History of the Later Roman Empire

by J.b. Bury

THE first of these two volumes might be entitled the “German Conquest of Western Europe,” and the second the “Age of Justinian.” The first covers more than one hundred and twenty years, the second somewhat less than fifty. This disparity is a striking illustration of the fact that perspective and proportion are unavoidably lost in an attempt to tell the story of any considerable period of ancient or early medieval history as fully as our sources allow. Perspective can be preserved only in an outline. The fifth century was one of the most critical periods in the history of Europe. It was crammed with events of great moment, and the changes which it witnessed transformed Europe more radically than any set of political events that have happened since. At that time hundreds of people w...

Ancient and Modern Mysteries of Civilization: The great mystical ways of the ancients

by Gina T. Gibbons

Why is humanity trying to find out what was millions of years ago, what knowledge did ancient civilizations have? We are looking for a source, because we think that by revealing it, we will know why we exist. Mankind wants to find where the starting point is, where it all began, because it thinks that there probably has an answer “for what is all this” and what will be at the end.The history of civilizations has more than one thousand years. During this time, whole cultures appeared and disappeared on the planet, about which very little is currently known. Scientists, however, argue that almost all of them had a very high level of development that surpasses the modern one many times.In the book “Ancient and Modern Mysteries of the World” we will acquaint readers with obscure pages ...
