Présentation de l'éditeur

Few would acknowledge that our knowledge of history could be significantly inaccurate. The most common conception of history is one that begins in Greece, the "cradle of Western civilization", then progresses through Rome, and finally Europe and America. However, this merely represents a strictly Western version of history, and one that is often confused with the history of the World. Fortunately though, recent scholarship has begun to elucidate the extent of the indebtedness of Western history to other civilizations, rendering our notion of "Western" civilization obsolete.Rather, a more accurate assessment of the past will reveal a neglected account, the hidden history of Western civilization, which began in Mesopotamia, in the sixth century BC, with the birth of a tradition centered around the myth of a dying god. The development of this tradition led to the emergence of philosophy among the Greeks, then influenced the formation of Christianity, and was appropriated and elaborated upon by the Arabs during the Middle Ages. Ultimately, being introduced to Europe during the Crusades, it eventually spawned the Renaissance and the Enlightenment.

Biographie de l'auteur

Author and historian David Livingstone was born in Montreal, Canada in 1966. David began studying Western civilization at Concordia University in 1987, where he first observed a number of curious anomalies in Western history, which he has spent the last thirteen years investigating, culminating in the present work.

Pour l'auteur l'histoire du monde occidentale ne prend pas sa source directement de la grèce antique mais plutôt à travers celle-ci d'influences liés à un culte dit du dieu mourrant (Osiris, Baal...) selon la civilisation et l'époque, qui est identifier au soleil. Dans ce culte le dieu soleil meurs en hiver, sa mère ou sa soeur en ayant un rapport incestueux le ramène à la vie au printemps. L'origine de ce culte remonte au roi Nimrod et de sa femme (et mère) Sémiramis (statue de la liberté américaine). Le roi Nimrod considérer comme un géant se rebelle contre Dieu et fera construire la "tour de Babel" à la mort de celui-ci, Sémiramis ordonne qu'on lui voue un culte divin. L'auteur montre les multiples échanges et influences entre les peuples de l'antiquitée, mais surtout la présence de ce culte dans l'hérésie de la kabbale qui affirme que 'Dieu' possède un côter masculin et féminin.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Demanding, flawed but amazing and very important 25 juin 2006
Par James Brooks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book attempts a truly prodigious feat; a historically detailed revision of the philosophical and religious history of western civilization. The determined reader will find that it largely succeeds, and will be rewarded with an extremely provocative new vision of history, Christianity, the foundations of science, the true meaning of the "Enlightenment", and the amorality of our rulers.

However, the reader will have to help by connecting pieces and maintaining the narrative. You'll also have to separate the wheat from the chaff. Every page is jammed with information but precious little summation. The early chapters brim with Mr. Livingstone's impressively broad and detailed scholarship of the ancient western world. With a wealth of examples he explains the development and spread of "the dying god" cults in every nook and cranny of the ancient western world.

He also offers an intriguing alternative history of the early Hebrews based on contemporary accounts from many sources and some deductive reasoning. I found it compelling, but you can reject it and still get the import of the book.

His heretical history of Greek culture appears to be well founded and consistent with contemporary accounts and the influence of the Kabbalists elsewhere in the ancient world. Livingstone introduces us to Plato as his contemporaries knew him and explains the significance of his baneful influence.

The emergence of Gnosticism and the Pauline neo-Platonic corruption of Christianity appear along the way, making a good deal more historical and theological sense than any other interpretation I have read.

The book doggedly follows its subject through the centuries, packing facts and stories into long sentences like sardines in a can. If it were written a conventional style it would probably be twice as long. I recommend reading it very slowly. Give yourself time to watch for, and think about and savor, the profound implications and connections of Livingstone's mountain of evidence. It can be pretty startling.

About halfway through it, my constant irritation with Livingstone's odd prose turned into a kind of admiration. He seemed to be refusing to paint the broad and generalized picture for the reader, letting the density of the evidentiary trail produce the overall picture by itself. Only from his commentary on specific points do we glean the full outline of his overarching vision.

I highly recommend reading David Livingstone's Amazon blog before reading the book. The articles there elegantly state Livingstone's overall point in a way the book does not. They also address the connection to the present day more thoroughly. I hope they portend a new book on the horizon. David Livingstone is onto something deep here.

If you want to understand the roots and self-image of our ruling elites, the 'initiated' who are released from the bonds of morality and Mosaic Law, this book is indispensable. If you're willing to work with a book, this one would make a great summer reading project!

I learned a lot about ancient civilazations and the struggles for power among the Muslims through the years but as typical as any other PHd on history, Livingston completely ignores the history of the Hebrew nation. Every PHd has done it in the past 100+ years starting around the time of H.G. Wells history of the world. All these PHd's aren't anything but b.s. without it and that's not bachelor of science, it's the other B.S.! The Hebrew history goes from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to the captivity in Egypt to the exodus with Moses and the taking of the promised land by Joshua, then the golden age of the Hebrew nation under David & Solomon. After Solomon's death the Hebrew nation splits in two in I Kings ch. 12. The northern 10 tribes become the House of Israel (Rueben, Dan, Asher, Zebulon, Naphtali, Asher, Ephraim, Manessah, Simeon, Isaacar) and the southern tribes become the House of Judah (Judah, Benjamin, Levi). In II Kings ch. 17, the northern tribes are taken captive by the Assyrians about 722 B.C., these tribes are moved by the Assyrians to an area south of the Caucus mountains. About 150 years later the House of Judah is taken captive to Babylon. The northern tribes are now free to do their own will so, the climb over the Caucus mountains and move towards Europe and start being labeled "Caucasians". Then 70 years later the House of Judah is allowed by the Persians to go back to Jerusalem and rebuild the temple. They are a mixed breed of beliefs now, the Torah, the books of Moses and the history and the prophets have been mixed with the Talmud and Kabbalism which are all pagan rituals and beliefs. Keep that in mind when you read this book and it will fill in some blanks, I'm open to questions, comments and rebuttals but I'm a quadraplegic writing this with a stick in my mouth so, email me your phone # and I'll discuss orally!
