Thoroughly researched and dense with info, this publication sheds mild at the origins of Christian vacations, saints, or even the lifetime of Jesus. there was a lot dialogue in fresh a long time approximately what's truth (and what's poetic license) within the time-honored tales approximately early Christianity. Professor Walter takes all of it a step additional as he files the facts assisting the speculation that a lot of Christianity used to be merged into latest pagan ritual and symbolism.
