The Divine Women of Ancient Kemet By Faheem Judah-El D.D.
Hardcover: $59.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
INTRODUCTION Divine women of ancient Kemet such as (Queen/Empress) Hemet Tiye, Nefertiti, Nefertari, Ahmose Nefertari, and Hatshepsut are well-known Kemetian Empresses today, but few people are... More > familiar with Empresses such as Sobekneferu or Tausret. More than a dozen women may have ruled Kemet after the founding of the first dynasty; and while there are numerous works written about a few famous Empresses there is no single work highlighting the lives of Empresses, Princesses, and Netjerts (Divinities) as a group in ancient Kemet. Question: why did some of the Queens or Empresses become Pharoahs? Answer: despite the lack of research, Egyptologists still perpetuate the belief that women have only ruled Kemet and Kush at the end of dynasties due to the lack of a male heir, in an attempt to preserve the domination of the ruling family or dying bloodline, and this is just not true. This belief is the result of foreign scholarship not overstanding how female rule worked in ancient Kemet.< Less

Ancient Peru and Bolivia, like Egypt, contain enigmas and mysteries, especially in stone which most conventional scholarship can`t explain. Rather than simply being the exclusively the works of... More > cultures such as the Inca, there are many megalithic wonders which defy both the conventional time lines and known levels of technology attributed to the ancient people of South America. The most glaring example is most likely Puma Punku, near the shore of Lake Titicaca in Bolivia, which hints at not only being several thousand years old, but also seems to have been achieved using what we would call high level machine technology. There are also many sites in Peru, and especially near the city of Cusco that also show the hall marks of having been made by cultures using technology supposedly not known by cultures such as the Inca. A massive collection of photographic and and detailed analysis is contained in this book, as well as on site observations by leading engineers.< Less
The Jordan Lead Codices: The Gospel of Abgar, The Critical Edition - Edited and Translated From Ancient Greek by Daniel Deleanu By Daniel Deleanu
Paperback: $30.75
Prints in 3-5 business days
The Gospel of Abgar, which is a segment of the Greek part of the Jordan Lead Codices, incorporates among other texts the epistle sent by Abgar to Jesus and its reply, and a short prophecy made by... More > Jesus. Based on this and on the fact that the lead codices were found sealed, some have speculated that they are actually the lost collection of sealed books mentioned in the Book of Revelation, claiming that they refer to the second coming of Christ. According to scholars, the Gospel of Abgar may date to as early as 33 AD, in which case it may be older than the canonical books of the New Testament. This makes it extremely valuable for Biblical scholarship, especially since it may also contain the first historically attested mandylion (portrait of Christ) ever. The clear translation from the original Greek, the erudite introduction which clearly demonstrates that the Jordan Lead Codices are not a modern forgery, and the appended materials add to the great scholarship of this indispensable edition.< Less
History of the Conquest of Mexico: With a Preliminary View of Ancient Mexican Civilization, and the Life of the Conqueror, Hernando Cortes By William Hickling Prescott
eBook (ePub): $3.99
History of the Conquest of Mexico: With a Preliminary View of Ancient Mexican Civilization, and the Life of the Conqueror, Hernando Cortes By William Hickling Prescott. Illustrations from the... More > Montezuma Edition. Prescott expressed interest in his correspondence in writing a biography of Molière, and Ticknor records that he sent Prescott "a collection of about 50 volumes" of relevant material. However, after writing to Ángel Calderón de la Barca, a Spanish minister living in Mexico, who was able to provide source material, Prescott started research on what was to become the History of the Conquest of Mexico. There was relatively little scholarship on Aztec civilization, and Prescott dismissed much of it as "speculation", and he therefore had to rely almost exclusively on primary sources. He considered Edward King's theory that the pre-Columbian civilizations were non-indigenous to be fallacious, although he was greatly indebted to him for his anthology of Aztec codices in the Antiquities of Mexico.< Less

The Gospel of Abgar, translated here for the first time by Daniel Deleanu, PhD, is a segment of the Greek part of the Jordan Lead Codices, which incorporates among other texts the epistle sent by... More > Abgar to Jesus and its reply, and a short prophecy made by Jesus. Based on this and on the fact that the lead codices were found sealed, some have speculated that they are actually the lost collection of sealed books mentioned in the Book of Revelation, claiming that they refer to the second coming of Christ. These are Abgar’s words: “…he made us know that which would be revealed at the end of times, and in the demise of all creatures.” The Gospel of Abgar, which may date to as early as 33 AD, may be older than the canonical books of the New Testament. This makes it extremely valuable for Biblical scholarship, especially since it may also contain the first historically attested mandylion (portrait of Christ) ever. This is a book that is meant to become one of the required readings of the 21st century, and not only.< Less
