Did Christianity begin with a mythical Christ? Was the original Jesus a man or a mythical savior god? Solving the Jesus Puzzle through the Christian and ancient-world record, from the Pauline epistles to the Gospels to the second century Christian apologists, from Philo to Josephus to Jewish and Hellenistic philosophy.

Christian faith evolved from a Jesus myth to an historical Jesus. New Testament scholarship needs to uncover that original evolution and rewrite the history of Western religion.

Mythicist Papers

This site combines pages related to Jesus mythicism together with a blog. My aim is to provide Jesus mythicists with valuable but lesser known resources difficult to find or perhaps not otherwise available on the web. Some of the articles (e.g., those by Georges Ory) I’ve translated myself, and they here appear on the web for the first time. Other pages (e.g., those by Dilef Nielsen) are old material which has long been forgotten yet, in my opinion, deserves renewed attention by mythicists. There are also pages by contemporary mythicists including Robert Price, Frank Zindler, David Fitzgerald, and myself.

General information regarding Jesus mythicism includes the detailed page, “A Mythicist Timeline”—a good place to start for those new to the subject. It demonstrates that Jesus Mythicism is hardly new and that the conviction that Jesus of Nazareth never walked on earth has had numerous scholarly proponents over a period of three centuries. That view may still be considered “fringy,” but with the growing number of books on the subject and the emergence of websites such as this, that is slowly changing at the beginning of this new millennium.

The general history of mythicism also includes a bibliography page and a series of biographies of individual mythicists—at this time mostly from the French school.

The object of this post is to elicit those sites. What I would like from you are sites like the following:

This is your opportunity to pass on what you consider the most essential or most interesting, or most helpful sites for people interested in this forum. What have you got?
In addition to the many great sites already mentioned, I have used:

Really hard to get stuff on PDF

http://www.ixoyc.net/data/Fathers/196.pdf (English translation of Clement's Instructor including the censored passages about hyenas having male and female genitalia)
http://www.ixoyc.net/fathers2.aspx (more books on Alexandrian and Coptic Christianity than one man could read in a lifetime)

If archaeologists of the future found these sites they would be heralded as an incredible discoveries
