The following is the reblog of the article entitled, “Pagan roots of Easter” written by historian and author, Luciana Cavallaro today (March 30, 2018). The post highlights the universal theme of resurrection which has been described in mythology of Ancient Civilizations. It always intrigues me how different myths and religions often intertwine with similar story lines or concepts.
For those who have been following my blog know I am historian with a specialist interest and knowledge in ancient history. So, the content of this article may not come to you as a surprise. As today is Good Friday, I thought it would be an opportunity to write about the origins of this Holy event beginning with resurrection.
