On sait abondante littérature que le ceremony du taurobole à suscitée depuis près d'un siècle, en raison de los angeles polémique née au IVe siècle de notre ère, entre les derniers tenants d'un paganisme cristallisé autour de ce culte à Cybèle et les chrétiens. Certains érudits ont voulu voir dans ce rituel l. a. preuve d'une impact directe des religions orientales sur les rites et les mystères chrétiens. Le grand mérite de l'A. est d'avoir repris, sans parti-pris, l'examen exhaustif de tout le matériel épigraphique et littéraire qui nous renseigne sur ce ceremony. Après avoir donné ensemble des files, il examine le sens des mots employés, tentant de préciser los angeles matérialité du ceremony et sa signification. Après cette enquête imperative et scientifiquement menée, il peut retracer, avec los angeles plus grande vraisemblance, évolution de ce rituel et ses successives

From Publishers Weekly
As in his earlier books (Holy Blood, Holy Grail; The Jesus Papers), Baigent attempts to discover the darkish forceshiding within the shadows of faith and ferret out fundamentalists whose dogmatism usually turns to violence. targeting the tip instances, he warns that strong fundamentalist sects in Christianity, Judaism and Islam are operating to result in the conflict of Armageddon, while the forces of darkness could be destroyed via the Messiah, who will then lead to a brand new reign. All 3 teams wish Jerusalem, the place each one lays declare to a actual spot, the Dome of the Rock, as a sacred position in its background; all 3 desire a country within which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes an identical mistake that the fundamentalists make while analyzing the e-book of Revelation. it's not a publication of prophecy and handbook for scary sinners again into the fold; it truly is apocalyptic literature that makes use of symbols as mystery codes for the scenario within the lives of first- and second-century Christians, providing them wish for escaping from their plights. unfortunately, Baigent's well-intentioned exposé seems to be little greater than a screed opposed to fundamentalism that's in accordance with a misreading of his important textual content.
