"The DIEGESIS; Being A Discovery of the Origin, Evidences, and Early History of Christianity, Never Yet Before or Elsewhere So Fully and Faithfully Set Forth." Written in 1829, this masterpiece of Comparative Religion was so far ahead of its time that it's still a useful reference today. It's an historical showing that the Christian religion did not originate according to the narrative of the gospels, but was more ancient. It's a wonderful read, eloquently written, containing vast amounts of scholarly research. Modern day scholars such as Acharya S cite this book as a reference. The information it contains is as relevant today as it was two centuries ago.

Robert Taylor was a gifted orator, writer, and scholar. He started as a reverend, but left the church when his research into Christianity revealed the conventional story of Christian origins as taught by all Christian churches was untenable. A true champion of freethought, Taylor could not be silenced.

In 1824 Taylor moved to London and founded the Christian Evidence Society. The society published a brief manifesto stating their four grand propositions: "1) That the scriptures of the New Testament, were not written by the persons whose names they bear. 2) That they did not appear in the times to which they refer. 3) That the persons, of whom they treat, never existed. 4) That the events which they relate, never happened."

In 1828 Robert Taylor was sentenced to Oakham Gaol (jail) for one year for blasphemy and for "a conspiracy to overthrow the Christian Religion." In Oakham Gaol Taylor wrote "SYNTAGMA," being a vindication of his manifesto wherein he presents all the evidence supporting his four grand propositions, and wherein he replies to the myriad of attacks by the Rev. Dr. John Pye Smith. After writing SYNTAGMA, Taylor went on to write this masterpiece, "The DIEGESIS."

Upon release from Oakham Gaol Taylor secured a location and began preaching sermons every Sunday explaining the astronomical foundation of numerous stories in the Bible. These 48 eloquent sermons are preserved in the two volume set THE DEVIL'S PULPIT (Volume 1 is available from Amazon. Volume 2, currently not available from Amazon, is available at [...] [(...)])
