One thought on “Against the Galileans

  1. Yann on said:

    Julien l'Apostat est un personnage intéressant. Devenu empereur romain après le règne de Constantin, il s'est détourné du christianisme que son prédécesseur avait adopté, et dans lequel il avait été élevé, pour adopter plutôt des traditions païennes vers lesquelles il est allé de lui-même et qu'il a préférées.

    Julian "The Apostate" was a Roman emperor who came after Christianity was officially recognized and promoted in the empire. In his short reign of about 2 years he tried to re-establish paganism. A scholar and philospher as well as a soldier and emperor, he wrote a number of works in defence of his beliefs. One of the most interesting is this, Against the Galileans. in which he subjects Christian (and Jewish) beliefs to rational analysis, much in the style of a philosopher. It's almost amusing to [...]

    Great food for thought. Some of his claims about the Hellenistic gods come off as contrary to the way their nature is represented in myths by Ovid (just to give an example). Regardless, he provides interesting arguments worth considering.
