My New Article Just Published: “Easter and Ancient Myths”

My article, “Easter and Ancient Myths,” was just published as the cover article in the September-October issue of The Fourth R, the journal of the Westar Institute, an association of biblical scholars dedicated to furthering religious literacy, focusing on the Judeo-Christian tradition. The article is based on the Easter chapter of my new book, The Mythology of America’s Seasonal Holidays. The article begins on page 8 of the issue. Enjoy! Comments and questions are welcome.

The Apotheosis of Heracles, by Noel Coypel, 1700. The Resurrection and Ascension of Christ parallels the accounts of other figures of the Greco-Roman world who were “translated” into heaven upon their deaths.
