The Alethes Logos of Celsus and the Historicity of Christ

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    The article focuses on the New Atheist movement and writers who have dismissed the historicity of "Jesus of Nazareth" book and portrayed him simply as a mythic character. It mentions that Christ's birth, claimed to be of the Virgin Mary and the Holy Spirit, was treated as historical fact by Christians in the second century. It also mentions that the book "Celsus" placed significance on the death of Jesus by crucifixion, seeing it as a historical event that opened up Christianity to ridicule.
