Item Description...
The Two Babylons: Or, the Papal Worship Proved to be the Worship of Nimrod and His Wife is a key religious text written by author Alexander Hislop. This Hislop work is based on the concept that numerous traditions of Roman Catholicism came directly from a mysterious religion largely focused on Nimrod and his family. Coming from this ancient Babylonian religion, many of todays continued practices were incorporated into the teachings of Jesus Christ from this religion, and are revealed in this highly acclaimed early 20th century work. The Two Babylons is highly recommended for those who are interested in the origins of Christian traditions and those who enjoy the writings of author Alexander Hislop.

Alexander was for a time parish schoolmaster of Wick, Caithness. In 1831 he married Jane Pearson. He was for a time editor of the Scottish Guardian newspaper. As a probationer he joined the Free Church of Scotland at the Disruption of 1843. He was ordained in 1844 at the East Free Church, Arbroath, where he became senior minister in 1864. He died of a paralytic stroke the next year after being ill for about two years. He wrote several books, his most famous being The Two Babylons: Papal worship Revealed to be the worship of Nimrod and His wife.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Highly controversial  Aug 2, 2008
A current trend among Christians is to start questioning the origins of "Christmas" and "Easter" and the baptism of infants and the deification of Mary and numerous other "sacraments", beliefs and traditions. And that is good. In a way, Hislop started all of this with this book, more than 100 years ago.
At the time it seemed to have been very well researched, but cracks in the woodwork has appeared since. This doesn't mean that everything he writes is wrong, but simply that what is written cannot be accepted as the undisputed truth.

Hislop does, however come very close to the truth for the most part. It is, luckily, also quite easy to discern where he bases arguments on facts, and where he makes deductions. In is in the deductions where the fault lies, because he is a little too liberal in his deductions, and these should be taken with a pinch of salt, or simply disregarded. As I said, the factual parts are however, highly informative and often very shocking.

Another problem is that the book is written in a highly academic way and is by no means an easy read. Add to this the subject matter, and it rapidly becomes a "study" rather than a "read". But a fascinating study, nonetheless.

So the bad news is that the book isn't entirely accurate, and plain difficult. That said however, it almost qualifies as "essential reading" for the Christian who is in any way concerned with the pagan origins of current Christian practices or the history of the Catholic Church. As I said, controversial.

Many people simply reject the evidence that Mr Hislop presents because of its controversial nature. And that is the easy way out. It is not easy to critisize one's own church, especially if one is a devout and committed Christian. But, in spite of all its shortcomings, this book does present one with evidence that demands further contemplation.

This book however, goes further than that, in the sense that Hislop shows the reader how all the religions fit together, from Jesus Christ to Buddha to the temple prostitutes of Diana and Adonis. Fascinating stuff, but presented in the most boring way imaginable.

So, this is a tedious book, for serious scholars. But it does deliver. And it is controversial and it is relevant, 150 years after it was written. It is certainly not everyone's cup of tea, but it is by far the best publication to date on the ancient origins of religion, mythology and doctrine. It is the kind of book I would seriously study from cover to cover, but not expect anyone else to read.
The Twin Babaloyns  Feb 25, 2008
It is useful to see throughout history Man has defied GOD in making his own version of HIS WORD! The Catholics are just the most popular becase most of them are not required to read GOD's word just worship the pope and Mary the mother of Christ who did not realize all along who her?HIS son is.
It's obvious  Feb 11, 2008
I read this book and found that it helped piece together a huge part of a very complicated puzzle. Not an easy read but definately a wealth of information. I think the author retracted for reasons other than poor research methods. I think he retracted his work for the same reasons many other controversial books are pulled from publication. I was born and raised Catholic and to this day the priests still wear the attire worn by Ancient Dagon Priests. The Pope also uses the same instruments used by Ancient Pagan Priests affiliated with Babylonian Religion. There are many more similarities that are just too hard to ignore. I know it's a tough pill to swallow when you've been spoon fed this nonsense for years but it's pretty obvious. Catholics eat fish on Friday in honor of Dagon (Pagan Fish God). I mean folks if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it just might be......... you guessed it. Let's use some common sense, remember common sense????
The thesis has been refuted by it's very author!  Aug 2, 2007
This books cites sources such as the writings of occultists Madame Blavatsky...who was anti-Semetc and anti-Christian! The author who wrote this book realized Hislop was a hack, and changed his views. He is not a Roman Catholic, because there are genuine Theological reasons not to be one.

Claiming Catholics are Pagans are only going to lead people astray. I became a Wiccan in my teens partly because I heard such things...and I wasn't a Catholic then or now. You can't just simply seperate 1500 years of Christianity from Catholicism. It's like taking flour out of bread.

Read Mr. Woodrow's NEW book "The Babylon Connection?" In which REFUTES the things Hislop and he himself said...which tooks tremendous courage.
A History of Traditions.  Jul 17, 2007
When the Roman Catholic Church makes its traditions superior to scripture, and still under its latest pope declares all other Christian groups false in recent proclamations, who really are the "bigots" as other's have labeled this book? Where then do many of these uniquely unusual Catholic rituals originate? Certainly not the Bible. And if not the Bible, then give a more precise historical source. Even most Catholics would be surprised just how much of their church's background and practices have absolutely nothing to do with Christianity. The major reason for the Reformation and the establishment of Protestantism. The only problem today is that most so called "Protestants", accept the handed down traditions over scripture as well.
