"...Jesus Christ, i.e., the Man-God of the Christians copied from the
Avatâras of every country, from the Hindu Krishna as well as the
Egyptian Horus, was never a historical person. He is a deified
personification of the glorified type of the great Hierophants of the
Temples, and his story, as told in the New Testament, is an allegory,
assuredly containing profound esoteric truths, but still an
allegory.  Every act of the Jesus of the New Testament, every word
attributed to him, every event related of him during the three years
of the mission he is said to have accomplished, rests on the
programme of the Cycle of Initiation, a cycle founded on the
Precession of the Equinoxes and the Signs of the Zodiac...."

"The legend of which I speak is founded....on the existence of a
personage called Jehoshua (from which Jesus has been made) born at
Lüd or Lydda about 120 years before the modern era....In spite of all
the desperate research made during long centuries, if we set aside
the testimony of the 'Evangelists,' i.e., unknown men whose identity
has never been established, and that of the Fathers of the Church,
interested fanatics, neither history, nor profane tradition, neither
official documents, nor the contemporaries of the soidisant drama,
are able to provide one single serious proof of the historical and
real existence, not only of the Man-God but even of him called Jesus
of Nazareth, from the year 1 to the year 33. All is darkness and
silence....The biography of Jesus was invented after the first
