“Human history becomes more and more, a race between education and catastrophe.” – George Orwell, 1920, Outline of History .
The Earth was flat. Teachers were teaching students it was flat; scientists knew it was flat. There was some disagreement about how it was kept afloat. The most common versions were elephants, whales, and turtles, but that was subject to scientific discussion until Magellan sailed around the globe and proved all this science wrong. Curious scientists, AKA Magellans of today checked these versions and found out that the Earth is not flat, and elephants, whales, and turtles that support it are a fantasy. Literally.
The authors argue that The Bible may reflect the events in the medieval history of Russia and Europe. For example, wasn’t the voyage of Columbus in 1492 described in the Bible in the form of a legend about the patriarch Noah and his Ark?
They find in it the new answers to a number of questions: – who, when, and why built the Moscow Kremlin;
– how the Protestant revolution was connected to the rule of Russian Tsars
The crucial issues are discussed, AKA when did the First Ecumenical Council
of the Christian Church take place, when did the era “from the Nativity of Christ” begin?
How, the era of the life of Jesus Christ can be determined from the data preserved in the history of the calculation.
Our research does not touch upon the foundations of the doctrine outlined in the Bible and does not call into question the religious tenets of those religions for which the Bible is the holy book. The book is read with unflagging interest, and it will attract the attention of everyone who is concerned about the problems of ancient and medieval history.
There are two layers in our books. The first is statistical, mathematical, and astronomical evidence related to chronology and only to it. The second layer is our attempts to give a new historical picture, consistent with mathematical chronology. The first layer seems boring to some readers. The second one is more interesting and exciting. Therefore, readers sometimes skip the “mathematical chapters” and go straight to the interpretational ones. And realizing how much they have to change in their minds, they naturally begin to ask: where is the evidence? After all, the authors propose a revision of many blocks of ancient history. This is a serious thing!
Author claims that the Bible describes medieval European events. A natural question arises: which ones? This book is an attempt to answer it. But the Bible describes a lot of events. Therefore, we have decided to restrict ourselves for now to just one topic, AKA Russia-Horde on the pages of the Bible. This choice is dictated by the leading role of Russia-Horde in medieval history, see the book “Empire”. Therefore, it is natural to expect that the Bible, as the most important and voluminous primary source on the history of the Middle Ages, should have described the them. Why have such traces – in fact, quite obvious – have not been found in the Bible before us? Why haven’t other scientists noticed them? After all, among them were some of the most prominent scholars of the Bible, who devoted their entire lives to studying the Bible. The reader has the right to ask – what is the advantage of the authors of this book over these respected scientists? We are in a completely different position from our predecessors. It turns out that first, it was necessary to understand the chronology and then proceed to interpret the biblical historical evidence. Note that this circumstance is far from obvious. Changing the chronology significantly changes the interpretation of the texts. It turns out that the shifting of dates of biblical events in the Middle Ages unexpectedly opens up a lot of new things in the pages of the Bible. Knowing what it really says about the Middle Ages, we are surprised to begin to recognize in the biblical descriptions the vivid events of medieval history familiar to us.
