The Issue with Antiquity

ATF-5-Antiquity-3dBy the middle of XVI th century the prime political agenda of Europe that reached superiority in Sciences and Technologies, but was still inferior militarily to the Evil Empire of Eurasia, was to free Europe. The concerted effort of European aristocracy, black and white Catholic clergy, Protestants, humanists and scientists in XVI – XVII centuries in creation and dissemination of fictional Ancient World of Antiquity served this agenda perfectly. The European aristocracy, a considerable part of which were noble fugitives from Byzantine and/or the inheritors of Eurasian warlords, supported the myth of Ancient World to justify its claims to countries they ruled. The scientists supported the myth of Ancient World as safe cover for their research that produced results heretic from the point of view of Christianity.
