Three New Ideas in the Field of Ancient History

Idea (1) The Gnostic Gospels and Acts were authored c.325 CE as a reaction to the Constantine Bible
Idea (2) Evidence of systematic Christian identify theft suggests Arius may not have been a Christian,
but in fact a Platonic theologian, and may be identified with the Gnostic Leucius Charinus
Idea (3) Constantine commisioned the fabrication of the New Testament and its history 312-324 CE

THESIS_Constantine_INVENTED_Christianity

In honour of the memory of Arnaldo Momigliano (1908-1987)
Momigliano's "Miracles"

On 28 October 312
the Christians
suddenly and unexpectedly
found themselves victorious.
The victory was

"a miracle"

though opinions differed
as to the nature of the sign
vouchsafed to Constantine.
The winners became conscious
of their victory in a mood
of resentment and vengeance.
The revolution of the fourth century,
carrying with it a new historiography
will not be understood if we underrate
the determination, almost the fierceness,
with which the Christians
appreciated and exploited

"the miracle"

that had transformed Constantine
into a supporter, a protector,
and later a legislator
of the Christian church.
however Momigliano's "Miracles" were no "Miracles" !!
