Lost Children Of Hercules

Herodotus, perhaps the most renowned Greek historian, believed the Greek religion was mostly an Egyptian import. The Spartans, it’s believed, emigrated to Greece from Egypt. They introduced keynote numbers, including three, seven and 12 — all of which later appeared in prominent places within the Bible.

Here, we’re introduced to the strong men Hercules and Samson, who shared many traits, including a love for beautiful but dangerous women. But this goes much deeper, showing how the Israelite tribe of Dan extended its influence over the Vikings in the North and the Druids or ancient Celts found in the vicinity of Ireland. It’s the work if Robert Sepehr, author and anthropologist.

 




 

Mystery Religion Of Atlantis

Mystery religions, mystery cults, sacred mysteries or simply mysteries were religious schools of the ancient world for which participation was reserved to initiates.

The Mythical Origins of Europe

For much of Western history, from the Roman Empire to the Renaissance, noble families across Europe insisted that they were not related to the populations that they ruled, but instead traced their ancestry back to illustrious heroic figures of myth and legend.

The Etruscan civilization flourished in central Italy starting around 900 BC, with assimilation into the Roman society, beginning in the late 4th century BC. Although the Etruscans developed a system of writing borrowed from Greek script, the Etruscan language remains only partly understood, making modern interpretation of their society and culture heavily dependent on much later and generally disapproving Roman and Greek sources.

The Etruscans called themselves Rasenna (meaning Red) and held the serpent as sacred, and some scholars associate them with the Sea Peoples named by the Egyptians, or the Tribe of Dan.  More from Robert Sepehr, author and anthropologist.




Knights Of The Lion

The Knights Templar were a religious order of knighthood established at the time of the Crusades that grew in wealth and power through banking and military conquest. Eventually destroyed by King Philip IV of France, the order allegedly introduced esoteric knowledge from the Middle East into Europe considered blasphemous by the Church.

During the Renaissance, these guarded alchemical secrets were symbolically encoded into various forms of literature by certain occult secret societies. More from Robert Sepehr, author and anthropologist.




 

Legendary Race Of Little People

Cultures around the word speak of a legendary race of Little People. Here, Robert Sepehr describes the many stories of these leprechauns and how the stories bear similarities regardless of where you go. Sepehr is an anthropologist and author.




White Giants Of The New World

Rober Sepehr, author and anthropologist, introduces us to the legend of the Phoenix, early mystics and the land of Phoenicia. These places, seers and symbols have a connection to Christianity, as they serve to embody the Resurrection. But they also bear a relationship to the palm tree, and to various ancient gods, including Adonis in Greek mythology and older gods from Sumeria.  The red-plumed Phoenix was revered as well in ancient China and Korea.

This tale takes us to the founding of Carthage, which later battled with Rome. Ancient DNA studies show, though, that the Phoenicians from Carthage shared a European heritage with the Romans. Phoenician symbols turned up in Viking lore, and also appeared across present-day Great Britain. These symbols even surfaced in early North America, notably at Mystery Hill in New Hampshire. Native tribesmen across North America have tales and legends of giants that once traversed the New World. How might the Phoenicians figure into these stories and legends?




 

 

 

The Muses Of Apollo

In Greek mythology, the Nine Muses were the daughters of Zeus, goddesses of poetic inspiration and the creative arts. Presided over by Apollo, the Muses were usually depicted in paintings as young, ethereal women with divine beauty, often with wings, on whose mercy the creativity, wisdom and insight of all artists, musicians and philosophers depended.

In literature, ancient writers would invoke Muses near the beginning of their work when writing poetry, hymns or epic history, asking for help or inviting the Muse to sing directly through the author. More from Robert Sepehr, author and anthropologist.




Mary Magdalene In Full

Robert Sepehr, the world’s most dangerous anthropologist,  examines the life and spirituality of Mary Magdalene, revered as one of the closest disciples and followers of Jesus Christ. But she also embodies many traditions from ancient religions, spanning the continents. Here, Sepehr explores these strands from ancient Sumer, Babylon and Egypt, while also touching upon Tantric traditions from Eastern Asia. His full original for this video is Ancient Goddess of Above And Below.




 

 

Red Empire Of Ancient World

Robert Sepehr returns with a fascinating account of life in the Copper Age when mankind began to use copper tools and weaponry for the first time. Much of this progress occurred around the Mediterranean Sea and involved the Anatolian peoples, living in the region that’s now encompassed by Turkey.

Sepehr, an author and anthropologist, refutes the theory that mankind sprung up in Africa, before spreading across Europe and Asia, and eventually, Australia and the Americas. Here, he explores his own alternative theories governing the advance of civilization.




Near Death Experience

A near-death experience is a profound subjective experience associated with death or impending death which encompass a variety of sensations often including detachment from the body, feelings of levitation, total serenity, security, visions of deceased relatives and religious figures, warmth (love), and the presence of a light. More from Robert Sepehr, anthropologist and author.
