We explore the alternative religious history of Western Civilization. We champion the voices of the past who were the minority, the underdog, the persecuted and those lost to tyranny. Utilizing works of the best modern scholars, we have set out together to understand: Who were the Gnostics?, Who were the original Christians?, How did Paganism shape the Jesus we know of today? Who wrote the Biblical scriptures?, How did the works of the classical Western Philosophers shape the New Testament?, Why were women silenced in the Church? and How is Literalist Christianity today being challenged by archaeological finds, such as The Dead Sea Scrolls? Our format and setting is the traditional academic classroom. We welcome all those with an open mind and a love for knowledge to join us.
