5.0 von 5 Sternen Thank you, Alexander Hislop
Still the definitive work on the origin of roman catholic ritual and practice, and NOT that difficult a read, despite the assertions of some (what a sorry TV-soaked generation we've become!) As a former practicing roman catholic for 30 years, I thank God for Hislop's research regarding the origin of the mother and child image in particular. I do think he was...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Archaic but important synthesis of information
Hislop's analysis of the convergence of church history, archeology, and paganism provides a helpful synthesis of information rating five stars. Three complaints. First, the language in both diction and sentence structure is quite archaic making it a bit of a challenge to read initially. Second, Hislop's anti-Catholic bias does distract occasionally times. Finally,...

Still the definitive work on the origin of roman catholic ritual and practice, and NOT that difficult a read, despite the assertions of some (what a sorry TV-soaked generation we've become!) As a former practicing roman catholic for 30 years, I thank God for Hislop's research regarding the origin of the mother and child image in particular. I do think he was terribly off regarding the god of forces (Daniel 11:38) and perhaps was not himself a saved man, but still I thank him for helping me to see the darkness of roman catholicism. I frankly much prefer Hislop's work over that of Dave Hunt ("A Woman Rides the Beast") and recommend it highly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An expose of pagan elements in Christian religion., 20. November 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Hislop's "The Two Babylons" is an in-depth study of the ancient (pagan) Babylonian religion, and how it has survived down to our present day, primarily in many of the traditions and doctrines of the Church of Rome (the other "Babylon" in Hislop's title). The book is extremely valuable in revealing to us the nature of the various pagan religions of Egypt, India, Greece, etc., all of which had their origins in Babylon. The thoughtful reader will recognize many of the old pagan customs, gift wrapped with "Christian" significance, in modern Christmas and Easter traditions. Hislop is sometimes falsely represented as teaching that the Trinity was invented by the Babylonians. But Hislop affirms his belief in the Trinity in several places. For example, on page 17, he refers to it as "... that sublime mystery of our faith." Hislop did not object to the doctrine of the Trinity, but to the idolatrous ways it was represented in paganism. On page 18, he says "... While overlaid with idolatry, the recognition of a Trinity was universal in all the ancient nations of the world, proving how deep-rooted in the human race was the primeval doctrine on this subject, which comes out so distinctly in Genesis. ..." He footnotes this statement with the observation that, when Jacob blessed the sons of Joseph, he used a threefold invocation of the sacred name of Jehovah (Genesis 48:15-16). Hislop firmly believed that the character of God, including His Triune personality, was revealed to man from the beginning of time, and that history records how men have distorted this truth, as they have all truth. "The Two Babylons" is worthwhile reading for all who would like to know more about the origins of religious customs.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A genuinely wonderful though now dated work., 6. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
"Two Babylons" is a stunning read for those who think they understand Christianity but have failed to do the research. I fail to give it five stars because it is not accurate on many points and is written with extreme Protestant bias. Taken as a whole, however, the book is a fascinating tour of ancient mythology and its influence on Christianity. No one who reads the book and takes the time to follow up with some research can deny its basic premise that Catholicism takes much of its symbolism and doctrine from other forms of ancient worship. Even Protestantism carries much of this baggage to this day. The book becomes pure speculation at the end, but even with this failing is worth every penny of its price.

5.0 von 5 Sternen AAA+++ Popery at all levels exposed!, 31. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Hislop shows the Roman religion to be exactly what it is-Babylonian paganism draped in Christian language. Satan's method is always to substitute the false for the true, while just keeping a little bit of truth mixed in to deceive. Hislop's approach is from a coventant theological point of view, so I'd disagree on a few points at the end of the book (holding a dispensational view myself), but don't let that discourage your purchase of this book. It is a must to know and understand the battle the reformers faced when they stood for Jesus Christ, and against the Roman church.

4.0 von 5 Sternen very good but some flaws, 3. Januar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
This is the best book I have ever come across on the origin of religions. Some religions such as Hinduism claim to be the oldest, but as Hislop shows this cannot be true. Hislop shows that religions have a common origin. This origin is in Babylon. A careful reading of his book shows that these religions are corruptions of a true religion. On this I agree. Many religions have a teaching on the trinity and similar teachings that point to a common origin. But a corruption does not mean a religion is completely false, but that it does not teach the full truth. This full truth is in the Bible. For instance, the Bible teaches that as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. This is a teaching on the powers of the mind. Thus, religions such as christian science, buddhism and mind science are religions based on this quote from the Bible. But they are not religions that teach the full truth in the Bible and therefore can be called corruptions. Other corruptions are the claims of those who say that Hercules carried a cross, that Krishna was crucified, that there were sixteen crucified saviors long before Jesus, that Buddha miraculousy fed a multitude and so forth. All of these are corruptions that have a common origin, and this origin is Babylon. Hislop shows how religions started and then spread to egypt, india and so on. Although he indicts the Catholic Church on being pagan, I am not in complete agreement with this. However, his arguments on the origin and spread of religion are brilliant and are alone worth the price of the book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Daring expose of many of Christendom's dearest "truths", 20. Juli 1997
Von Ein Kunde
When one challenges long-held, traditional views, not only of Church but of any institution, immediate outrage is usually generated, and such a work is often not appreciated for decades, if ever. This book is a classic exception. It has been appreciated so much that it refuses to "die" despite its age. The reason is that it contains scholarly value and a generally, though not unqualifiably, unbiased look into many beliefs held within the churches even today. To call it Catholic-bashing is inappropriate, although the anti-Papal bent is obvious. Instead, reading this book is like taking a veil of secrecy away from beliefs cherished for so long in ignorance. Not only Catholic, but also most Protestant and non-Denominational church-goers will find much to be shocked by, but it will truly enlighten an honest student of the development of much Church doctrine. Much of the research in this book was used by the Watchtower Bible And Tract Society's publication "Babylon The Great Has Fallen" in taking the entire religious world to task for accepting what Dr. Hislop exposes as pagan influences and origins behind much that is today considered sacred. We can only hope that such even-handed scholarly revelation will continue to be read and appreciated

5.0 von 5 Sternen Two Babylons- valuable insight to the present, 12. Januar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Hislop reveals that the strong order of the bull is the backbone of social domination. What Hislop's religious paradigm omits is that the elites called themselves gods, and legitimized it via priests. It is simply the history of government tyranny, in ancient record. All peoples have sought relief from this oppression, and popular heroes reflect the desire(Abram refused to pay the sacrifice tax and was forced to live in the hills). Jesus of Nazereth, minus the divinity is a clever revolutionary: spiritual ascension instead of violent overthrow to defeat Satan (Sheitan Theitan Titan Saturn Tammuz). Connect Hislops work with that of Quigley (Tragedy and Hope), and a clear picture emerges. The modern equivalent of Jesus today, is the democratic person saying: vote!, Down with corporate tyranny. A good overview of this is contained in two titles Fuller (Grunch of Giants), and Gailbraith (Anatomy of Power).
Hislop has done all persons a considerable favour for having preserved the secret history of Evil (Devil Horned One Bachus Kronos Saturn). He fails to reveal that they were mere mortals who crowned themselves.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Classic Which Stands the Test of Time, 6. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
There's no doubt about it this book is a difficult read. However, with a little persistence you too can get through this book. This book is certainly controversial, especially in our politically correct society where it is a no-no to criticize anyone or anyone's beliefs. This book compares Roman Catholicism with ancient Pagan Beliefs (primarily Babylonian and Egyptian). It's true you cannot make a direct connection of the two belief systems but the similarities are definitely there for anyone with an OPEN mind to see. Any visitor to the Vatican can see the pagan symbology staring them straight in the face. However, most people would rather bury their heads in the sand than confront the pagan origins of many of today's so-called christian traditions. They fail to consider that if the Bible was their ONLY source for religion, then Christmas, Easter, Sunday Worship, the Trinity, Halloween, and Lent would fall by the wayside since these are not of Biblical origin but man-made traditions and beliefs. Truth is the beginning of knowledge. I would rate this book 5 stars if it were easier to read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Enlightening, 7. März 1999
After reading Rev. Hishops book twice, one only need to compare this book with the unorthodox, nonapostolic doctrines of Catholicism, to answer the question (is all this true?) The shape of the new testament shows that the early church's primary aim was to submit fully to the teachings of Christ passed down to the apostles. In that purpose they shaped the character of Christianity for all to follow. This book gives proof to the paganistic doctorines of popery, maryology, baptismal regeneration, pentance, purgatory, limbo, mediatrix of Mary, rosary, sacred heart worship, prayers to the dead, idol worship, relics, etc.... Rome needs to answer where did they come up with these nonchristian doctrines? and why? Paul warned in Col:2;8 beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world and not after Christ. I must agree that the Roman church has much to answer for. If you have ever wondered where they could have come up with these cultic teachings, read this book.

Von Ein Kunde
There are roots of western civilization mentioned in this book that you would be challenged to find in any western civ. course in any university. The bibliography is impressive.
