Item Description...
You may be surprised to learn that many traditions of Roman Catholicism in fact don't come from Christ's teachings but from an ancient Babylonian "Mystery" religion that was centered on Nimrod, his wife Semiramis, and a child Tammuz. This book shows how this ancient religion transformed itself as it incorporated Christ into its teachings. You may be surprised that certain practices like confessions, and crossing ones self, and even the position of the Pope come from traditions of this mystery cult

More About Alexander Hislop

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Alexander Hislop (1807-1865) was a Free Church of Scotland minister infamous for his outspoken criticisms of the Roman Catholic Church. He was the son of Stephen Hislop (died 1837), a mason by occupation and an elder of the Relief Church. Alexander's brother was also named Stephen Hislop (lived 1817-1863) and became well known in his time as a missionary to India and a naturalist. 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.

Alexander Hislop was born in 1807 and died in 1865.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
WOW  Nov 11, 2008
In reading all the reviews, I'm reminded of the emotional triggers still in place. People holding on so tightly to their beliefs that another view cannot be allowed to be considered. What I'm trying to understand is the threat. What is the fear? Where does it come from? Is there just one path to get back to God/Source? I say read all you can read, study all you can study, open your mind. Your heart will reject what is not true and you will know. A great master once said "you need that no man teach you; the Truth is written in your inward parts". So, by all means glean everything you can from anyone, any scripture, but in the final analysis, you have to go inside yourself to know what's true. That is where the real work begins. (On a Lighter note:) if Jesus had not done that, he'd have still been studying to this day. I.e. He practiced what he preached until the Truth was manifest and He embraced the Light and became one with It ("I and the Father are One"). He invited humankind to do the same. Eyes to see, ears to hear? Hello? Blessings of love, light & laughter.
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.
