Insights from Contemporary Authors

modern-works-about-the-lost-civilization-of-the-sun-and-religion-of-the-sunLooking into the past and exploring ancient cultures and spiritual traditions can lead to many unanswered questions.

  • Why are there so many sacred sites separated by vast distances that contain similar construction styles, symbolism and alignments to the solstices and equinoxes?
  • Why do ancient texts reference the sun as having a spiritual aspect, or associate the sun with their spiritual deities allegorically?
  • Why do the lives of many spiritual deities align with major events in the solar calendar?
  • Just how old is humanity?
  • Are we really the most advanced society the world has ever seen?
  • What is the Religion of the Sun?
  • Is it possible to develop a connection to the world’s oldest spiritual traditions, and to have the same spiritual experiences today as the ancients did?

These types of question can be hard to answer simply by delving into ancient sacred texts or modern history books.

For more information on ancient texts please visit our sacred texts page.

Ancient texts are full of meaning, but often focus on passing a spiritual message, and can sometimes be difficult to interpret as they were written symbolically, and using the language of another time.

History books often take a conservative approach to ancient cultures, where the mainstream narrative depicts our ancestors as simple-minded nature worshipers, incapable of remarkable spiritual or technological development.

Discoveries about our ancient past that don’t quite fit into the current mainstream historical narrative (or ones that sometimes prove it to be inaccurate) are often subject to suppression and ridicule, which makes it difficult to learn the truth about what actually took place in the distant past of our planet.

Thankfully however, a number of determined modern authors have explored alternate viewpoints in their work that clearly depict the true nature of our planet’s ancient history and spiritual legacy. What they uncover and explain has literally changed the spiritual, historical and archaeological landscape completely, revitalizing the ancient Religion of the Sun and reviving the knowledge of cultures and traditions which practiced it anew for the modern world.

On this page we have curated a number of modern resources which:

  • Speak about the Religion of the Sun and how it can be practised in modern times
  • Explore ancient sacred sites from all around the world; and
  • Uncover many different aspects of the lost civilization of the sun.

This page is a work in progress. As more relevant modern works are found or become available they will be added to this list. If you know of any modern works which you can recommend on these subjects, please send them to us through our contact page.

The Religion of the Sun

The Path of the Spiritual Sun, Belsebuub with Lara Atwood

In their latest work The Path of the Spiritual Sun: Celebrating the Solstices & Equinoxes, Belsebuub (with Lara Atwood) provides evidence for a lost worldwide civilization that venerated the sun as part of the most widely celebrated religion the world has ever seen. The evidence for this common thread of spirituality can be found in written and oral histories and has been encoded in sacred texts. It can also be discovered in the similarities in symbolism and alignment of ancient sites built by cultures separated by vast distances and thousands of years.

The Path of the Spiritual Sun is not just a history book however. It is a comprehensive and practical guide to exploring the celebration of the sun in our own lives, as it provides practical instructions on how to celebrate the solstices and equinoxes today, utilizing ceremonies that are very similar to those practiced in the Religion of the Sun in ancient times.

The Ancient Religion of the Sun, Lara Atwood

The Ancient Religion Of The Sun Lara Atwood

The ancient Religion of the Sun has had a powerful influence upon human history and some of its major civilizations, giving rise to many of the most famous ancient sites and revered wisdom traditions.

In The Ancient Religion of the Sun, Lara Atwood traces the origins of this religion, its spread and practice, and humanity’s forgotten sacred past, examining indigenous histories and customs, traditional mythology and folklore, sacred texts, as well as archeological, historical, genetic, and linguistic evidence of the lost civilization of the sun and the veneration of the sun which was at its core.

The Flight of the Feathered Serpent by Armando Cosani

Published in the 1950s, The Flight of the Feathered Serpent portrays one of the world’s greatest dramas — the handing over of Jesus to the authorities by Judas — in a different light. Rather than a betrayal, it shows how Judas’ actions — as Jesus’ most advanced disciple — were completed not by his own ill will, but due to instructions from Jesus himself. Interestingly, this information was correlated in the recent discovery and translation of the Gospel of Judas.

Written in three parts, The Flight of the Feathered Serpent explains how a journalist in South America met and befriended an enigmatic man who provided him with a wealth of spiritual guidance, and asked him to publish the true story of Judas and Jesus. But just who was that man, and where did he get such intimate first-hand information about the life of Jesus and his Disciples?

The Lost Civilization of the Sun

Magicians of the Gods, Graham Hancock

The Magicians of the Gods: The Forgotten Wisdom of Earth’s Lost Civilization by Graham Hancock explores irrefutable scientific evidence for a comet impact that caused massive flooding and destroyed a once advanced civilization between 12,800 and 11,600 years ago. These dates align exactly with those given by Plato for the destruction of the mythical city of Atlantis, and worldwide flooding is spoken of in the written and oral histories of numerous cultures around the world.

Magicians of the Gods also explains how after the mass flooding, survivors of an advanced and enlightened civilization traveled the world in great ships working to re-establish civilization in key areas of the world including Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt, ancient Sumer, Mexico, Peru and across the Pacific.

Fingerprints of the Gods, Graham Hancock

Fingerprints of the GodsGraham Hancock’s 1995 bestseller, Fingerprints of the Gods – Evidence of Earth’s Lost Civilization, sets out to uncover the true history of mankind using archaeo-astronomy, geology, and computer analysis of ancient myths. Exploring sacred sites worldwide from Tiahuanaco and Teotihuacan, to the Sphinx and pyramids of Egypt, the Nazca lines of Peru, and the Osireion at Abydos, the book takes the reader on “a journey both around the globe and into the heart of the true prehistoric origins of man.”

Fingerprints of the Gods also sheds light on the real and deeper meanings of ancient myths and monuments, and explores the warning given by the ancients through them of a terrible cataclysm that afflicts the Earth in great cycles at irregular intervals of time.

White Indians of Nivaria, Gordon Kennedy

In the The White Indians of Nivaria; The Untold Story of the Last Stone-Age Indo-European Tribes, author Gordon Kennedy presents the ethnography of the Guanche Indians, who are stated as being the last white stone-age culture. The Guanche were a race of Indo-European origin native to Tenerife island (the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands). They practiced many similar traditions to the ancient Egyptians such as mummification and pyramid building, despite being separated geographically by thousands of miles. They also appear to have been custodians of the ancient spiritual legacy of the Religion of the Sun, likely passed to them by an even earlier culture from European pre-history.

Sacred Sites

Books About Ancient Africa

Pathways of the Sun, Dean Liprini

In his book Pathways of the Sun, Dean Liprini takes the reader on a journey of discovery through a network of sacred sites surrounding Table Mountain in South Africa. These sites — many of which are geometrically aligned — have been designed in such a way that they interact with the sun on the solstices and equinoxes.

Throughout his book Dean tries to answer questions posed by these sacred sites, such as:

  • Who created them?
  • Why do the human faces of some of the stone monuments around Table Mountain have human faces whose eyes align to the cardinal directions of the sun?
  • Was the deliberate alignment of these sites a way of passing on a message for future generations?
