      "But when Constantine's nephew, Julian, came to the throne, all of this
      was changed. Julian was a Neoplatonist, a pupil of Aedesius, who had in
      turn been taught by Iamblichus. Julian was initiated at Ephesus when he
      was only twenty years old, and later was initiated into the Eleusinian
      Mysteries.

      When Julian came to power the whole Christian world was thrown into a
      state of perturbation. How would this Neoplatonist, this Initiate, act
      toward Christianity? Would he retaliate with some new and still more
      cruel refinement of death and torture? Julian answered these questions in
      a truly Christlike manner. He at once extended free and equal rights to
      all the inhabitants of the Empire, irrespective of their religious
      beliefs. He invited all those Christian Bishops who had been
      excommunicated and exiled on account of their unorthodox views, to return
      to their posts. At the same time he urged the pagan teachers who had been
      driven out of Alexandria by Constantine to return to their philosophical
      pursuits. He invited the opposing Christian factions to meet in his
      palace, where he advised them to give up their differences and try to
      live in concord. But at the same time he gave his pagan subjects
      permission to re-open their temples and continue their own form of
      worship. Because of this fair and impartial treatment of his subjects,
      Julian has come down in Christian history under the ignominious title of
      "the Apostate."

      The knowledge that Julian had gained in his initiations made him a menace
      to orthodox Christianity. He was urged to make his knowledge public so
      that the Christian Church could refute his statements. To this Julian
      replied:

      Were I to touch upon the initiation into the Sacred Mysteries respecting
      the "seven-rayed God" . . . I should say things unknown to the rabble,
      very unknown, but well known to the Blessed Theurgists.
      This reply aroused a storm of protest among his Christian subjects.
      Catholic history informs us that this "greatest enemy of Christianity,"
      after a reign of only eighteen months, came to an untimely end through
      the "supernatural intervention" of a spear-thrust received in battle with
      the soldiers of the Persian King Sapor. As he lay dying, Julian summed up
      in a few words the aim and purpose of his life. "I have learned from
      philosophy," he said, "how much more excellent the soul is than the body,
      and that the separation of the nobler substance should be the subject of
      joy rather than of affliction." Then, turning to the two philosophers,
      Priscus and Maximus, who stood near his death-bed, he entered into a
      metaphysical discussion as to the nature of the soul, and assured them
      that he had always tried to lead his own life from the soul point of
      view.

      And I can affirm with confidence that the emanation of the Divine Power
      has been preserved in my hands pure and immaculate. Detesting the corrupt
      and destructive maxims of despotism, I have considered the happiness of
      the people as the end of government. (Ammianus: xxv.)

      With the death of Julian the Christian Church regained its power, and the
      doom of the old religions, sciences and philosophies was sealed. The
      Church had borrowed too much from them for her own safety. Every event in
      the life of Jesus, from his virgin birth to his final crucifixion and
      resurrection, had been copied from the stories of the pagan gods. Every
      dogma and ritual in the Christian Church had its pagan counterpart. These
      facts were known to the entire pagan world and as the Church continued to
      borrow from the pagans in an ever-increasing measure, it became more and
      more difficult for her to maintain her claim of <i>uniqueness</i>. So
      long as pagan schools existed, the Church could not without contradiction
      represent herself as the sole repository of knowledge. So long as pagan
      books existed, the Bible would not be accepted as the only revelation of
      God. So long as pagan philosophers lived and taught, the dogmatic
      assertions of the Church Fathers would be questioned. There was but one
      course for the Church -- to <i>destroy</i> all the evidences of her
      plagiarisms by wiping out the pagan schools, the pagan records, even the
      pagan philosophers themselves."
