However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage. Scroll down for a report on that.
Under the image, I added the following caption: Bronze sculpture hidden in the Vatican treasury of the Cock, symbol of St. Peter, but only the cock or roosteras in the story of Matthew I apologize for the ambiguity, but I was not in error here, despite the constant attempts to make me appear as such.
Roman carvings of disembodied phalli often gave them the legs or wings of cocks. Over the years since The Christ Conspiracy was published, this image has been the periodic focus of interest.
Of late, in his new book Did Jesus Exist? Quoting me first, he comments: He is further implying that I simply make things up, and he is asserting with absolute certainty that no such bronze has existed in the Vatican, essentially stating that I fabricated the entire story.
A Discourse on the Worship of Priapus. By the inscription on the pedestal, the attribute thus personified, is styled The Saviour of the World…, a title always venerable under whatever image it be presented. The relationship of cock and phallus is ancient. Doing our scholarly due diligence, we find the pertinent figure in Fuchs on p.
That inscription is found upon an ancient Phallus, of a date of much more remote antiquity than the birth of Christ. The author follows this discussion with another about the ancient author Macrobius and his work concerning the various gods of the Roman Empire and their solar nature.

This object was published under papal and royal authority, exhibited for a time in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and is now said to be held inaccessible in the secret collections of the Vatican.
During the public life of this bronze, officials disagreed upon the probity of the exhibit. One offended cardinal requested that the object be removed… Dr. I obviously did not fabricate the image of this artifact, which has been known in scholarly circles for over years. Nor was my contention erroneous that the figure is secreted in the Vatican, according to several authors.
Nevertheless, Ehrman continues his imputation by concluding about my book: In short, if there is any conspiracy here, it is not on the part of the ancient Christians who made up Jesus but on the part of modern authors who make up stories about the ancient Christians and what they believed about Jesus.
As we can see, everything in my book concerning this discussion is cited and accurately represents the original commentary, as found in several publications dating from the 17th century until the present era, reflecting a tradition from antiquity.The best opinions, comments and analysis from The Telegraph.
