In other papers related to the thesis that Constantine invented christianity in the fourth century, and implemented it in the Roman Empire with effect from his military supremacist council of Nicaea, we have emphasised that the field of this thesis is ancient history.
An alternative theory of the history of antiquity is being explored in which the christian “Biblical History” was inserted into the political history of the Roman Empire no earlier than the rise of Constantine.
The denouncement by the Emperor Julian of the christian religion has not before been viewed from the perspective of the Eusebian fiction postulate. Traditonally Julian is viewed as a simple “apostate”, or turner-away-from the christian tradition. However this article explores the possibility that Julian was convinced that the entire religion was a fabrication and fiction of wicked men, in a very real ancient historical sense.
In a further paper, we will deal in more detail with the involvement of the fifth century christian censorship of the Three Books of Julian, and the role that the bishop Cyril performed in this political exercise under the progressive christian regime described in detail by Vlasis Rassias, Demolish Them! (Published in Greek, Athens 1994).
This alternative theory in the field of ancient history is capable of being refuted either in whole or in part by the provision of appropriate scientific and/or archeological evidence. An index of frequently cited exceptions has been maintained as a reference, and is extendible.
