Religion and believers #10 Infiltrating pagan teachings

In the previous posting we saw already how the pupils of the disciples from the apostles searched in other classic writings to add some flavour to their teaching and to gain more popularity because some Greek philosophers were very popular.

Religion and believers #5 Transition to Monotheism

In this chapter we look at the Roman-Greco influence of philosophers and at the 19th century terms henotheism and kathenotheism that were used to refer to the exalting of a particular god as exclusively the highest within the framework of a particular hymn or ritual—e.g., in the hymns of the Vedas (the ancient sacred texts of India).
