I am not entirely sure how to react to this one. The August issue of The Monthly Aspectarian (which is, I note from the strap "dedicated to awakening consciousness") has a nice note/review of The Last Pagan:
The violent death of the emperor Julian (Flavius Claudius Julianus, AD 332-363) on a Persian battlefield has become synonymous with the death of paganism. Vilified throughout history as the Apostate, the young philosopher-warrior was the last and arguably the most potent threat to Christianity.
The Last Pagan examines Julian’s journey from an aristocratic Christian childhood to his initiation into pagan cults and his mission to establish paganism as the dominant faith of the Roman world. Julian’s death, only two years into his reign, initiated a culture-wide suppression by the Church of all things it chose to identify as pagan. Only in recent decades, with the weakening of the Church’s influence and the resurgence of paganism, have the effects of that suppression begun to wane. Drawing upon more than 700 pages of Julian’s original writings, Adrian Murdoch shows that had Julian lived longer, our history and our present-day culture would likely be very different.
It would be churlish to complain about any publicity and all attention is flattering. But I notice that the bio of Julian is reviewed along with Nurturing Your Self While Caring for Another by Rose Kaszycki and Juanita Liepelt; Wisdom Chi Kung: Practices for Enlivening the Brain with Chi Energy by Mantak Chia; and God Is Not Dead: What Quantum Physics Tells Us About Our Origins and How We Should Live by Amit Goswami, Ph.D.
I wonder what Julian would have thought of this.
