Robert Graves (1895 - 1985)

King Jesus


In this work of historical fiction, told by Agabus the Decapolitan, Graves confronts Christianity, suggesting that Jesus's mother was secretly married to Herod's eldest son Antipater, whom Herod sacrificed in a ritual; that Jesus was conceived at the Feast of Tabernacles, which was at that time a fertility festival of the Great Mother Goddess cult; and that Jesus's mission was to destroy this Goddess cult and defeat the women (Mary Magdalen, Mary sister of Lazarus) who were a part of this movement. -Borders
