    This classic epic revolves around the battle between the Franks and the Moors in 778. Though he has grown up in poverty in a cave in Italy, Roland is in fact descended from great heroes of old.

    “There is neither water nor air here, its depth is unfathomable, it is as dark as the darkest night, and men wander about here helplessly. A man cannot live here and be satisfied, and he cannot gratify the cravings of affection” “May I look upon my soul and my shadow for the texts neither form a connected work nor belong to one period.” “Thoth was also the “tongue” of the Creator, and he at all times voiced the will of the great god, and spoke the words which commanded every being and thing in heaven and in earth to come into existence.” The Egyptian Book of the Dead The Book of the Dead is an ancient Egyptian funerary text generally written on papyrus and used...read more

    The Book of Enoch was thought to be lost for over 2000 years, until in 1773, a traveler brought three copies back from Ethiopia. Whether or not this ancient book was actually authored by Enoch, the father of Methuselah and great grandfather of Noah, is an ongoing debate among historians and theologians.

Charles is professionally narrated by Christopher Glyn and aims to provide those who are curious to know the contents of this cryptic and mysterious book with an enjoyable way to do...read more

    This short treatise was accounted by some of the Fathers as next to Holy Scripture. It was rediscovered in 1873 by a Greek Orthodox metropolitan of Nicomedia, in the codex from which, in 1875, he had published the full text of the Epistles of St. Clement. An old Latin translation was found in 1900. For convenience the contents may be divided into three parts: the first is the "Two Ways", the Way of Life and the Way of Death; the second part is a rituale dealing with baptism, fasting, and Holy Communion; the third speaks of the ministry. Doctrinal teaching is presupposed, and none is imparted. The Didache is mentioned by Eusebius after the books of Scripture (Church History III.25.4): "Let...read more

    The Didache is the common name of a brief early Christian treatise (dated by most scholars to the late first or early second century), containing instructions for Christian communities. The text, parts of which may have constituted the first written catechism, has three main sections dealing with Christian lessons, rituals such as baptism and eucharist, and Church organization. It was considered by some of the Church Fathers as part of the New Testament but rejected as spurious or non-canonical by others, eventually not accepted into the New Testament canon with the exception of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church "broader canon." The Roman Catholic Church has accepted it as part of the...read more

    One of the Pseudepigrapha, the Psalms of Solomon is a group of eighteen psalms (religious songs or poems) that are not part of any scriptural canon (they are, however, found in copies of the Peshitta). The Psalms of Solomon were referenced in Early Christian writings, but lost to modern scholars until a Greek manuscript was rediscovered in the 17th century. Politically, the Psalms of Solomon are anti-Maccabee, and some psalms in the collection show a clear awareness of the Roman conquest of Jerusalem under Pompey in 63 BCE, metaphorically treating him as a dragon who had been sent by God to punish the Maccabees. The Odes of Solomon is a collection of 42 odes attributed to Solomon....read more
