Full Text of Eusebius’ Chronicle Chronicon Proving the Patriarchs & the Flood

[i] Eusebius, (ca. 263-ca. 339) author of the Chronicle translated below, was a major Christian author and cleric of the fourth century. His other writings, many of which have survived, include the Ecclesiastical History, the Life of Constantine, historical, martyrological, apologetic, dogmatic, exegetical, and miscellaneous works. Although originally written in Greek, his important Chronicle (Chronography, or Chronicon) has survived fully only in an Armenian translation of the 5th century, of which our present edition is a translation. A fifth century Latin translation (known as Jerome’s Chronicle) contains only the second part of Eusebius’ two-part work, namely the chronological tables which accompany the text of Book One. Nonetheless, the Latin translation of the chronological tables is invaluable, since the beginning and ending of the corresponding Armenian parts of Book Two are damaged. Reflecting 5th century Armenia’s multi-lingual cultural milieu, Eusebius’ Chronicle initially was translated into Armenian from the original Greek, then corrected using a Syriac edition. During the same period Eusebius’ other influential work, the Ecclesiastical History, was translated into Armenian from the Syriac. From almost the moment of their translation, Eusebius’ works played an important role in the development of Armenian historical writing.

Many of Eusebius’ extant Greek texts were written while the author worked at the library in Caesarea Palestina founded by the scholar Origen (ca. 185–ca. 254), where he had access to numerous works of antiquity which have not survived. Eusebius’ welcome technique of including sometimes lengthy passages from such lost works guaranteed his writings an important place in historical literature, quite apart from his impressive literary and analytical abilities. These general characteristics of Eusebius’ work are particularly highlighted in the Chronicle. The Chronicle was the ancient world’s first systematic, chronologically sound, universal history. It begins with the earliest extant written records available to our author and continues to his own day, that is to the year 325.

Among the sources cited and often quoted from at length are Berosus, Alexander Polyhistor, Abydenus, Josephus, Castor, Diodorus, Cephalion, various named translations of the Bible, the writings of Manetho, Porphyrius, and others. In a brief introduction, Eusebius describes the plan of his work. He proposes to give a prose description of salient events and personalities from the civilizations of the Chaldeans, Assyrians, Medes, Lydians, Persians, Hebrews, Egyptians, and Greeks, plus listings of the Greek Olympiads, and the rulers of the Greek city-states, the Macedonians, and Romans.

Reduced & Revised Industry and Chronology Table for Britain & Ireland from Contemporary Records

AP INTRODUCTION: We like John Hext Fremlin’s attempt to put together a chronology from the Creation of the Universe, that all the ancients testified about, via the Flood that 700 worldwide ethne talked about in their legends, through the birth of Christ, all the way until the Roman era in England, where John resides. This chronology is not necessarily set in stone, but is a fair collection of affirmed dates, plus approximated and educated guesses of other dates. It is our pleasure to post this. Thank you John.
PS: We don’t really relish the paleo-, meso-, neo-lithic “stone age” periodisation terms of John Lubbock, but never mind it. We prefer stone, iron, bronze cultures instead which were often co-existant in the same time. Think of Australian aborigines co-existing with modern Australians. We also don’t like these terms like cavemen and hunter gathrerers because it implies a progressive biological evolution of Man, whereas Man has suffered from devolution rather from bigger, smarter, longer living, high tech primo patriarchs and survivors of the Global Flood. (see our other articles on that) , But never mind all that. John did a great job.

Reduced and Revised Industry and Chronology Table for Britain and Ireland from Contemporary Records
The chronology that I have given using Usshers chronology to as near as possible the events stated within the table. Most,  if not nearly all, of the dates are calculated on Usshers chronology given how long in years or maybe a couple of hundred of years a “said ” reign of kings or dynasty lasted. Given the remoteness of the period under investigation one is never going to get absolutes. Two slightly differing chronologies are given below for discussion Continue reading Reduced & Revised Industry and Chronology Table for Britain & Ireland from Contemporary Records

Open Letter to Rixon Steward Concerning Graham Hancock’s Darwinian, but NOT Alternative History

Because I could not find a way to convey this to him by posting as comment on his website, I will have to post it myself and mention the name of Graham Hancock after all as well. Hopefully it will help him to see the light of the errors of his “alternative” ways. Here is Hancock’s faulty video, Rixon posted on his alternative site:
(Warning: Don’t be sucked in by this Revised Neo Darwinism)


INDEED THEY ARE ALL LIES !

Dear Rixon Steward,

I’ve been visiting your news blog the last ten years & have had a presence on the web myself, already since 2001 as powerpointparadise.com, and lately here as ancientpatriarchs.wordpress.com

I saw your latest promotion of a video by a presumed alternative historian, but I just had to write you as I have a very different take on alternative ancient history than him. I would therefore like to bring to your attention the following points: Continue reading Open Letter to Rixon Steward Concerning Graham Hancock’s Darwinian, but NOT Alternative History

How the “Lunatic Fringe” Proved the Shroud’s Carbon dating Wrong!

ShroudFull 2 part movie about the Shroud of Turin giving the man in the shroud his actual 3D face (and body) back. New dating methods reveal the much older date of the cloth than previously thought. A team of two “lunatic fringe” investigators found that the sample of the Shroud was contaminated! But it took the Mainstream Academics would not believe it until…. Isn’t that symptomatic! What did He look like? Ray Downing accomplished a reconstruction of the Shroud through new computer methods and enhancements. Does this face belong to Jesus Christ?

 

The Chronicles of the early Britons – Bill Cooper

BrutusChapter 4  After the Flood,
by Bill Cooper

‘Yf God will, at an other apter tyme and in more apt place, marveilous agreement of the historyes of Antiquity and great unlooked for light and credit will be restored to the Originalls of Brutus…’ (John Dee 1577. Cotton MS. Vitellius. c. vii. f 206v)

On Wednesday 7th November 1917, Flinders Petrie, a renowned archaeologist of the day, addressed the assembled members of the British Academy. He was to present a paper to them entitled Neglected British History, (1) in which he drew attention to the fact that a considerable body of historical documentary source-material was being overlooked if not willfully ignored by modern historians. He drew fleeting attention to the work of Geoffrey of Monmouth and then homed in on one particular record that shed much light upon Geoffrey’s too-disparaged history.

Tysillo The ancient book to which he drew attention was known to him as the Tysilio Chronicle, which is listed today as Jesus College MS LXI and is lodged in the Bodleian Library, Oxford. It is written in medieval Welsh, and is, as its colophon reveals, (2) a translation that was commissioned by the same Walter of Oxford who commissioned Geoffrey of Monmouth to translate a certain very ancient British book into Latin. It is, in fact, a translation from early British into medieval Welsh of the same source-material used by Geoffrey, and is an answer to all those learned critics who have stated with such emphasis over the years that Geoffrey of Monmouth was lying when he claimed to have translated such a book.

Submerged Baltic Rock a Bronze Age Megalith? Or Materialistic Darwinian ‘Ancient UFO’?

BalticUFO-OverdatedMegalithPop Historians Reduce Submerged Baltic Megalith to A Materialistic Ancient UFO!

Not just that, but per Darwinian paradigm they date a pre-1500 BC ordinary megalith to 140.000 BP! And therefore it has to be an Unidentified Flying Object, UFO, because by their own wrong dating, the cavemen couldn’t make any Bronze Age megaliths. And thus this is the first UFO ever made of rock, even if metallic contents were found inside! Intergalactic Flintstones?BalticMegalithBronzeAge2

Again and again, we are being bamboozled by Darwinian propaganda from people who call themselves academics but are actually engaged in pure scientism, the religion of Quackademia of today! Enjoy the glaring irony! MUST watch! Be amused.

Pagan Gods Were Mortal Men

group-of-godsFrom Noah to Hercules by Brian Forbes  • May 21, 2015 • 0 Comments • 110 views • Summary:

There is a unanimous ancient perspective that directly contradicts the theory of evolution. It is being ignored by scholars in the modern day. Many pagan gods were mortal men. They were born, waged war, conferred advantages, had children, and died, whereupon they were deified by their descendants.

The theory of evolution is easily refuted by many powerful arguments and proofs. The watchmaker argument is perhaps the oldest and most famous. The Mt. St. Helen’s evidence, as a template for stratification and the carving of canyons, can be boiled down to a few sentences and photographs.

StHelensGrandCanyon

The kings of many European tribes can trace their genealogies back to Noah.[1] Another evidence that is of this caliber, which has yet to be given its proper place in the origins debate, is that of the common ancestry of all men through the “gods” of pagan (especially Greek and Roman) mythology.

At first glance this concept, that many to most pagan gods were mortal men, seems highly speculative – a conspiracy theory on a government protest website. It is not wild speculation. On the contrary, this was a position taken by nearly all historians of antiquity. The most skeptical, naturalistic authors were not ambiguous on this point, and there was very little deviation. This is my opinion, but you don’t have to accept it because of me.

The opinion of an un-credentialed spectator means little in this scholarly, pompous world. That is why I aim to bring you the opinion of these ancient authors in their own words. The experts of antiquity will show that Darwinism does not match the traditions of Paganism, Judaism, or any other ancient perspective on the origin of mankind.

An Alternative History of Spain, Scandinavia, Germany, NW Europe, Britain and Ireland

PP: This is an interesting endeavour by John HX Fremlin to sum up ancient history from the  Flood until the Roman era.. He tried together with the counsel of friends to date post Flood history in Western Europe, and in my opinion he did a wonderful job, even though a lot of it is guesswork and interpretation. but that is par for the course in history science. Enjoy

Compendium of World History Volume 1 No Such Thing As “Prehistory” of Man!

by Lu Paradise • February 9, 2014 • 9 Comments — 79 views

Chapter 2 – ’6000 Years of History’ by Dr. Herman L. Hoeh

How long has Man been upon earth? Where, and through whom, did civilization originate? What about “prehistoric man”? Can the history of the Bible be reconciled with ancient history? with Egyptian and Babylonian chronology?

Historians and archaeologists are sharply divided over these questions today. Many sense something is drastically wrong with the present explanation of the ancient world. How did all this scholarly doubt arise?

It is Never Safe to Assume

Remove from a library shelf any volume on world history or ancient man and examine its opening chapters. In it will be such expressions as: “it is thought,” “there appears to be some basis for believing,” “it has been suggested,” “it may be presumed,” “one may safely assume,” and “others are of the opinion” — just to mention a few.

Blind orthodox historians & “alternative” gatekeepers refuse to see the huge mammoth in the historical livingroom!

by Lu Paradise • May 28, 2013 — 192 views

Mainstream history academia has been hijacked and handicapped by false paradigms which morphed it into an unscientific mess of confusion on key issues like chronology, ancient history, megaliths, ice ages, dating, origins of civilizations, intercontinental traffic and contacts, origin of man, and more.

In the past things had been more or less under control in historical science. It had pretty much all been settled, for example that, “there had been “no pre- Columbian contacts between the Old World and the New World until the Indians had crossed via the Behring Street” or “the Vikings came via Iceland“, which fits the Darwinian paradigm much better than ancient sea-faring savants in ships crossing all the oceans long before Columbus!

brainwash-massesDarwinist-style history used to be long established, poured, and cemented into most minds of the world’s masses, hammered in via its key-concepts like “Cambrian, Holocene, Pleistocene, Pre-history, Paleolithic, Neolithic, cavemen, Neanderthalers, Hunter-Gatherers”, etc., via the glossy pages of the complicit mainstream media!
