Culturally, the Byzantines both preserved the knowledge of the classical world, much of which was lost in the West, and added to it.

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...

Biography of Alexander, the Great: The brief story

by Joanna Richter

The life of Alexander, the Great is a conglomeration of the historical saga of courage, bravery, and strong will of one man who, with great determination was able to change the course of nature of the ancient world. The life of Alexander, the Great was short-lived for someone who had done much in uniting the whole Persian Empire in one rule. Yet, it’s packed with actions, exciting events, and surrounded with dubious issues that still cast a doubt on many historians of today. Alexander was a person of extreme character. A great leader who was able to command respect for everyone who had known him including the vast army handed down to him by his father, Philip the King. In the short span of his life, he had shown behaviors you would not expect from someone powerful and ruthless as he w...

Quetzalcoatl: The History and Legacy of the Feathered Serpent God in Mesoamerican Mythology

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsGilgamesh, Hercules, Aeneas, and Lancelot are instantly recognized as mythological heroes in the West, evoking visions of Persian monsters, ghastly labors, and the founding and glorification of cities, but the name Quetzalcoatl is as mysterious as its spelling. Even those who have come across his name when learning about the history of Mesoamerica – particularly the Aztec and the god’s role in the Spanish conquest of their empire – are often unaware that the Mesoamerican deity has tales that equal any of those in the repertoire of the mythological figures mentioned above, and the tale of his transmission into modern times is no less fascinating.As archaeologists quickly learned, there are numer...

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...

Book 1: Greek Mythology - The Ancient Myths and Legends of Greek Mythology
Greek Mythology is the body of myths and teachings that belong to the ancient Greeks, concerning their gods and heroes, the nature of the world, and the origins and significance of their own cult and ritual practices.

Despite numerous ancient sources detailing the life of the foreign monarch and his wars with Rome, and despite being an interesting character who endured years as a fugitive in his youth, enjoyed a fascination with poisons, and held mercy and pragmatic ruthlessness in a delicate balance, very few scholarly books and works have been produced about him. It may be that his largely unsuccessful military campaigns have contributed to his disappearance from active historical examination, but despite his poor ...

Celts: A Captivating Guide to Ancient Celtic History and Mythology, Including Their Battles Against the Roman Republic in the Gallic Wars

by Captivating History

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Celts, then keep reading...Free History BONUS Inside!Today, the word Celtic means so many things. To most of us, it means something related to Ireland. We think of intricately designed Irish crosses, four-leaf clovers, and some of the more well-known stories of Celtic mythology. However, while Celtic culture has stayed alive in Ireland, its roots run much deeper, and they extend much farther than the small island nation off the coast of modern-day Great Britain. The story of the Celts is one of a rapid rise to prominence followed by a slow decline due to the influence of the Romans. But even so, Celtic culture has remained strong in Europe and has been able to persist to this day. So, even though the Celts represent just a small part o...

To talk of Saint Peter is to talk about a man of action. There is a good reason why he is the apostle with the most mentions in the Gospels, and the most referred to in the New Testament (a total of 195 times). In comparison, John, the next most popular disciple, barely reaches 29 references. It is at decisive moments which require a categorical reaction where the leader of the Twelve shines; it is then that Peter —born as Simon Bar-Jonah— has no riv...

Justin, I was a Byzantine emperor from 518 to 527, his reign became a prologue to the brilliant reign of his nephew Justinian I. The future Emperor began serving in the army in the reign of Leo as a simple soldier. He did not learn to write to the end of his life. During the Persian campaign, he commanded a separate military detachment. During the mutiny of 514-515, he participated in the defense of Constantinople and the breakthrough of the naval blockade of the city.The entire Roman law, formally, was based on the Law of Twelve Tables. It contained a number of regulations that formed the basis of the entire Roman legal system. This law was never changed or supplemented, it was formally valid throughout the entire Roman history. This, of course, does not mean that the law was perfect. Far...

History of society and democracy: before new epoch: Beginnings of democracy in early civilizations

by Alexander Buychik

"Democracy is the most complex and polysemantic type of political regime in the forms of implementation. Debates have not ceased about the meaning of the term “democracy” for seven centuries, since 1260, when the word was first used in the translation of Aristotelian “Politics”.The term “democracy” has become the most common in political science since antiquity when it originated and denoted “power of the people”. However, the mass use of the term did not leave behind it a certain unambiguous content. Until now, political science has not developed generally accepted ideas allowing us to formulate a clear definition of democracy. Various authors focus attention on the individual components of democracy, for example, the power of the majority, its limitation and control over ...
