The Issue with Baptism of Russia (History: Fiction or Science? Book 20)
“History: Fiction or Science?” series of 26 books is the most explosive tractate on history ever written proving irrefutably that the timeline of the civilization takes into account only the irrefutably dated non-contradictory events and artifacts barely exceed 1000 years!
St Augustin was quite prescient saying; “..beware of mathematicians, especially when they speak the truth! “
The quadruple baptism of Russia. Contrary to the official of Russian history was manufactured in the XVIII century by German historians Bayer, Miller, and Schlezer that relates the one and only baptism of Russia took place under Prince Vladimir in 986-989 A.D. The priests from Greece got the job of teaching the faith to the pagan Russians. Dr.Fomenko scratched this polished surface and found out that Russia was baptized four times. The first baptism was by Apostle Andrew, the second performed by Fotius, Patriarch of Czar-Grad “in the reign of the Greek King, Basil of Macedonia, and Ryurik, Great Prince of Russia, with Princes Askold and Dir regnant in Kyiv. The Great Catechesis doesn’t give any dates for either Baptism. Unlike the first two, the third and the fourth baptisms of Russia are dated in the Catechesis. The third one has taken place under the Great Princes Olga, in 963 A.D. The fourth baptism of Russia is the famous baptism of 989 A.D. under Prince Vladimir.
Every theory that these books contain, no matter how unorthodox, is backed by solid scientific data. The book contains 446 graphs and illustrations, a list of 1534 sources, copies of ancient manuscripts, and countless facts attesting to the falsity of the chronology used nowadays. The dominating historical discourse was essentially crafted in the XVI century from a rather contradictory jumble of sources such as innumerable copies of ancient Latin and Greek manuscripts whose originals had vanished in the Dark Ages and the allegedly irrefutable proof offered by late medieval astronomers, resting upon the power of ecclesial authorities. Nearly all of its components are blatantly untrue!
You will be amazed to discover: – That the chronology universally accepted today and taken for granted is simply wrong; – That ALL methods of dating of ancient sources and artifacts known today are erroneous or non-exact; – That there is not a single document that could be dated earlier than the XIth century; The Author refers to the Middle Ages as the Antiquity and proves mutual superimposition of the Second and the Third Roman Empire, both of which become identified as the respective kingdoms of Israel and Judah. Furthermore, Dr.Fomenko asserts that the famous reform of the Occidental Church in the XI century by Pope Gregory Hildebrand was the reflection of the XII century reforms of Byzantine emperor Andronicus who in his turn identified with Jesus Christ. No stone in the history of Antiquity is left unturned. Literally.
Part I of this book meticulously dissects the Almagest of Ptolemy compiled allegedly in 150 a.d. and considered to be the cornerstone of classical history. Dr.Fomenko et al state: Almagest was compiled in XVI-XVII cy from astronomical data of XI-XVI cy; cornerstone is ground to powder. Ptolemy is a cover name of a group of late medieval astronomers. In Part II of ‘History: Fiction or Science?’ Dr. Fomenko et al are the first ever to successfully decode the allegedly ancient Egyptian horoscopes painted in Pharaoh’s tombs of the Valley of Kings or cut in stone in Dendera and Esna for centuries considered impenetrable are decoded at last! All dates contained therein turn out definitely medieval and pertain to the XI cy a.d. the earliest. Well, how old is ‘ancient’ Egypt actually?
Why Antiquity and Dark Ages were to be invented? The consensual world history was manufactured in Europe in the XVI-XIX centuries with the political agenda of powers of that period on the basis of erroneous clerical chronology elaborated by Kabbalist-numerologist Joseph Justus Scaliger and Dionysius Petavius. By the middle of the XVI th century the prime political agenda of Europe that reached superiority in Sciences and Technologies, but was still inferior militarily to the Evil Empire of Eurasia, was to free Europe. The concerted effort of European aristocracy, black and white Catholic clergy, protestants, humanists, and scientists in the XV – XVII th centuries in the creation and dissemination of the fictional Ancient World served this agenda.
