Read through the most famous quotes by topic #anthropology




THE attention of the writer having been called to the fact that all Indo-Germanic nations have worshipped crucified Saviours, an investigation of the subject was made. Overwhelming proof was obtained that the sun-myths of the ancient Aryans were the origin of the religions in all of the countries which were peopled by the Aryans.

That Pagan nations worshipped a crucified man, was admitted by the Fathers of the early Christian Church.
