Tros was the father of three sons: Ilus, Assaracus, and Ganymedes. He is the eponym of Troy, also named "Ilion" for his son Ilus. Tros's wife was said to be Callirrhoe, daughter of the River God Scamander, or Acallaris, daughter of Eumedes. When Zeus abducted Ganymedes, Tros grieved for his son. Sympathetic, Zeus sent Hermes with two horses so swift they could run over water. Hermes also assured Tros that Ganymede was immortal and would be the cupbearer of the gods, a position of great distinction. In variant versions Ganymede is son of Laomedon son of Ilus son of Tros. It was from Tros that the Dardanians were called Trojans and the land named the Troad.Tros, Troy, King 1390 BC Dardania, Asia Minor _UID CB27DFF486BA6F43BDE5B1BE87A6C6A15CC8 Died 1300 BC Person ID I12824 williams Last Modified 06 Nov 2007 Father Erichthonius, of Arcadia,, b. 1450 BC, Rameses, Goshen, Egypt Find d. 1384 BC, Dardania,Kosovo Mother Astyoche, of Arcadia, b. 1440 BC, Arcadia, Greece _UID 122C44362D4E8D46BC485BDD19677D4B8AC1 Family ID F7187 Group Sheet Family Callirhoe Ilium of Troy, b. 1345 BC, Troy,Troas, Asia Minor _UID 6B11790645AA6244BEC359C569EBFF36B82A Children 1.

From Vulci: photo by Bibi Saint-Pol, of Troy, Princess Creusa Also, moreover, I, having dared to throw voices through the shadow, filled up the streets with a shout and, sad, I have called Creusa repeating again and again in vain. As I searched and rushed without end among the roofs of the city, the unlucky image of Creusa herself appeared before the eyes for me and an image greater than known. I was stunned. Then she began to speak and she took away my cares with these words: "What does it help to indulge in mad grief, O sweet husband? These things didn't happen without the divine will of the gods; it is neither the divine will for you to carry your companion Creusa from this place, nor does that ruler of proud Olympus (Jupiter) allow it. [There will be] long exiles for you, and the vast surface of the sea must be plowed (by you) ... There happy things and a kingdom and a queenly wife await you. Repel your tears for the beloved Creusa. I will not see the proud seats of the Myrmidonian and Dolopians, and I will not go to serve Greek mothers, [I], descendant of Dardania, and daughter-in-law of divine Venus. "But the great mother of the gods detains me on these shores: and now farewell and save the love of our common son." When she gave these words, she left [me] crying and wishing to say many things, and she receded into thin air. There thrice having tried to surround her neck with my arms: thrice in vain the image, having been grasped, fled my hands, equal to the light winds and very like to a fleeting dream. Although Creusa appears as a shade in the Aeneid, some say that she was not, in fact, dead, and had instead been detained alive by Aphrodite. While Creusa plays a relatively minor role in the Aeneid, her son, Ascanius, was destined for greater things, and founded the Julian line when Aeneas reached Italy.Creusa of Troy 1260 BC Troy, Troas, Asia Minor _UID C4BE45297E6A4746AB5C919BE9A973F592B2 Person ID I12932 williams Last Modified 06 Nov 2007 Father Priam, King of Troy, b. 1250 BC, Troy, Troas, Asia Minor d. 1183 Mother Hecuba, Troy Queen, b. 1245 BC, Phrygia _UID 6C6B6897478EB246B67CDBD24328BCB35C37 Family ID F7179 Group Sheet Family Aeneus, of Latium, b. 1250 BC, Troy, Troas, Asia Minor d. 1175 BC _UID 9CEB71DFED05A849929D6F8A6E652B593937 Children 1.

I think these points are extremely clear and extremely revealing. The Crista cannot be Celtic. I am not speaking here of the object that was at the Lendit Plain and which resembled the Geminae Cristae of Virgil and of Moses, but by contrast there is no doubt that the Merovingians and the Arians of Constantine as well as the Penitent sects, etc.., had seen in the Geminae Cristae a pagan funerary symbol related to reincarnation. Let me explain: already in the Old Testament, we see Moses, via Aaron, placing his rod in opposition to the snakes of the magicians in the pay of Pharaoh (we all remember the film "the Ten Commandments" starring Charlton Heston). However, the rod of Moses, having become the Brazen Serpent, ate the two serpents sent by the Magi of Pharaoh. There is therefore, in this Brazen Serpent, at one and the same time the manifestation of Salvation and of Divine Power, but equally and underlying it all, we find the remains of a pagan symbol common to both Egypt and Chaldea, and which is known as the Caduceus or Irminsul. What I mean is that, in the same way that Christianity was swallowed up by Bogomilism in Bulgaria, Italy, Spain, and Bavaria, as well as in Cologne, Germany, etc., it is absolutely possible that a Judaic object common both to the Greeks and Jews had finished up by serving the cult of the dead, and thus became associated with the cult of the dead that was played out on the Lendit Plain on Mount Dionysos (Montjoie – Saint-Denis). The Dionysian Bacchanals were orgiastic rites which were associated in Greek and Roman Antiquity with the myth of Orpheus. Here we find the explanation of some of the verses written by the poet Fortunatus, who, seeing the Crista in the hands of St. Radegunda, called himself "a new Orpheus." Now, because we don't have this object in our hands, we cannot know if it's really the Staff of Moses, or a Celtic artifact. There rests however one more particularly strange point: some people among us know that the psychoanalytic school of Frankfurt has always played an important role in Western geopolitics. This school of thought was composed of atheist Jews and Marxist sociologists. It is this school which, via Freud and Marie Bonaparte, had studied the myth of Rennes-le-Château by analysing the myths of Oedipus and Orpheus, myths which had been superimposed by secret Nazi movements, onto whatever had been discovered by Abbé Saunière in the Razès. The Frankfurt school has transposed their thoughts and studies by incorporating them into works of art realised by the French and Anglo-Saxon world. We have the famous films of Jean Cocteau: "The Blood of the Poet" (1930, directly psychoanalysed by Freud), "Orpheus" (1950), "The Testament of Orpheus" (1960) and "Beauty and the Beast "(1946). Philippe de Chérisey was also part of the French art scene (he was a former actor). Now, why would Jewish atheists and Marxist intellectuals, captivated by the lure of the myth of Orpheus, and who specialised in the historical and sociological study of Dionysian Bacchanals (sexual orgies), be interested in an allegedly Celtic object called the "Crista", that was lost in the depths of the Razès region? Sincerely, and listen carefully: Celtic objects of this type, there have been quite a few. And the Temple on the Lendit Plain was certainly not much more important than other temples of the time. Paris was a miserable place during the Merovingian period. Lyon was the capital of Gaul... and Lyon was a Celtic religious center far more important than Paris ever was.

The first mention of him in connection with Britain is the 9th century Life of Mary Magdalene by Rabanus Maurus (766-856), Archbishop of Mainz. He first appears as the legendary Keeper of the Holy Grail in Robert de Boron's Joseph d'Arimathie (early 13th century). He settled in Britain after the Crucifixion of Jesus, bringing the Holy Grail with him. The story spawned a rich literature on the same theme. Later tradition says he was a wealthy merchant who owned tin mines in Cornwall, and some popular fiction has him bringing Jesus with him to Britain to be trained by Druids there. Joseph was a metal merchant and may have made many trips to Britain. Although the Anglo-Israelists wish to believe that Joseph went to Ireland with his daughter, more reliable sources claim differently. They say Beli met and married Anna while he was living in Rome with his exiled father. Later, when Beli regained the throne, he invited a group of Christians to live in Britain where they could worship as they pleased; Joseph of Arimathea was one of that group. There are many stories about his being buried there and the miracles the artifacts he took with him have performed. Among the artifacts attributed to him on different occasions are: the Lia Fail (Stone of Destiny) and a staff made from the same thorn tree as the crown of thorns placed on the head of Jesus just before his crucifixion. 186. Joseph Of ARIMATHEA was born abt 35 B.C, died in 82 and was buried after 82. General Notes: [royality1.FTW] St.Joseph of Arimathea: Ancestor of Kings? Early Welsh Genealogies show us that most of the Early British Monarchies claimed descent in one way or another from Beli Mawr (the Great) who can be identified with the Celtic God, Belenos. However, in his mortal form, Beli was said to have been the husband of Anna, the daughter of St.Joseph of Arimathea. At first sight, this claim may seem quite extraordinary. St. Joseph was the man who had taken Christ's body down from the cross and given up his own tomb for Christ's last resting-place. Apocryphal legend tells us that Joseph of Arimathea was the Virgin Mary's paternal uncle. After the resurrection, he left Palestine with Saints Philip, Lazarus, Mary Magdalene & others, and sailed through the Mediterranean to Southern France. Lazarus & Mary stayed in Marseilles, while the others travelled north. At the English Channel, St. Philip sent Joseph, with twelve disciples, to establish Christianity in the most far-flung corner of the Roman Empire. Joseph had been chosen for such a task, because he knew Britain well already. He was a merchant by trade and had conducted business with the Dumnonian tin-miners and Durotrigian lead-miners of Britain many times before. Some even say that he sometimes brought his nephew, Jesus, withhim on these trading missions. Hence the words of Blake's famous hymn,Jerusalem: And did those feet, in ancient time, Walk upon England's mountains green? West Country legend has it that Joseph sailed around Land's End and headed for what was to eventually become Glastonbury in Somerset. Herehis boat ran a shore and, together with his followers, he climbed a nearby hill to survey the surrounding land. Having brought with him a staff grown from Christ's Holy Crown of Thorns, he thrust it into the ground and announced that he and his twelve companions were "Weary All". The thorn staff immediately took miraculous root, and it can be seen there still on Wearyall Hill. Joseph met with the local ruler and soon secured himself twelve hides of land at Glastonbury on which to build the first monastery in Britain.From here he became Britain's evangelist. So it is not surprising that the monarchies of that country wished to establish themselves as St.Joseph's descendants: especially considering the more pagan ancestors already claimed in their pedigrees. By marrying Joseph's daughter to apre-Christian deity, the royal genealogists were able to show that Christianity had been victorious over the old pagan ways. But why specifically choose Beli Mawr as Anna's husband? Chronologically speaking, if Anna married a Briton after her father arrived in this country, then we must assume that she was nearer to Jesus' age than her cousin, Mary (ie. born c. 0). Beli is recorded in the Mabinogion and Welsh Genealogies as having been the father of Caswallon(or Cassivellaunus), the leader of the Celtic tribes who repelled Cæsar's invasions of 55 & 54 bc. He could, therefore, not possibly have married Anna of Arimathea. Moreover, the local ruler whom Joseph received his land gift from, is said to have been Arfyrag (or Arviragus), Beli &Anna's supposed great great grandson. In fact, here we have another case of pagan gods taking on the guise of Christian saints in order to smooth the path of conversion. For Celtic mythology tells us that Beli (or Belenos) did not marry a lady named Anna, but the great Celtic Goddess named Anu. Anu appears in the Celtic World under several names but they all stem from the same route: Anu,Danu, Dana, Don. She was a Mother-Goddess particularly associated with the founding and prosperity of Ireland. She was especially popular in Munster, though her most lasting memorial is a mountain in County Kerry called the "Breast of Anu" (Dá Chích Anann). St. Anne probably owes her popularity in Brittany to this goddess, as do the names of numerousSt.Anne's Wells through out Britain. However, the claims of the British Kings cannot be quite so easily dismissed. The Celtic God-King, Bran Fendigaid (the Blessed), who may ormay not have been an early King of Siluria, is also often accredited with being the man to have brought Christianity to the British Isles.Unfortunately, this is due to a confusion with the historical Cunobelin(Arfyrag's father) who, though he died prior to the Roman Invasion of AD43, was thought to have been taken captive to Rome where he became converted to Christianity. He appears to be the same figure as the Ancestral Fisher-King of Arthurian legend, Bron or Brons, said, in late legend, to have been given the Holy Grail by St.Joseph of Arimathea. This was, in reality Bran's magic cauldron of Celtic myth. Brons was also thought to have been a relative of St.Joseph: the husband of his sister,Enygeus. The mythical Bran was Beli Mawr's grandson: just the right ageto marry St.Joseph's daughter; and Enygeus is a Latin form of Anna. Could Bran have been her husband? Was he blessed by his father-in-law? 27 Jul 0082 In Glastonbury, Wales Abt 38 B.C., Bethlehem, Judea Noted events in his life were: Joseph married (name unknown) Children from this marriage were: + 191 F i. ANNA + 192 F ii. Anna Prophetess ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------- REF: "Britannia Internet Magazine": Joseph of Arimathaea was a wealthy disciple of Jesus, who, according to the book of Matthew 27:57-60, asked Pontius Pilate for permission to take Jesus' dead body in order to prepare it for burial. He also provided the tomb where the crucified Lord was laid until his Resurrection. Joseph is mentioned in a few times in parallel passages in Mark, Luke and John, but nothing further is heard about his later activities. Legend, however, supplies us with the rest of his story by claiming that Joseph, accompanying the Apostle Philip on a preaching mission to Gaul, was sent to Britain for the purpose of converting the island to Christianity. The year 63 AD is commonly given for this "event", with 37 AD sometimes being put forth as an alternative. It was said that Joseph achieved his wealth in the metals trade, and in the course of conducting his business, he probably became acquainted with Britain, at least the southwestern parts of it. Cornwall was a chief mining district and well-known in the Roman empire for its tin and other metals. Some have even said that Joseph was the uncle of Jesus, and that he may have brought the young boy along on one of his business trips to the island. It was only natural, then, that Joseph should have been chosen for the first mission to Britain, and appropriate that he should come first to Glastonbury, that gravitational center for legendary activity in the West Country. Much more was added to Joseph's legend during the middle ages, and he was gradually inflated into a major saint and cult hero. For example, he is said to have brought with him either a cup, said to have been used at the Last Supper and also used to catch the blood dripping from Christ as he hung on the Cross. A variation of this story is that Joseph brought with him two cruets, one containing the blood and the other, the sweat of Christ. Either of these items are known as The Holy Grail, and were the object(s) of the quests of the Knights of King Arthur's Round Table. The legend goes on to suggest that Joseph hid the "Grail" in Chalice Well at Glastonbury for safe-keeping. There is a wide variance of scholarly opinion on this subject, however, and a good deal of doubt exists as to whether Joseph ever came to Britain at all, for any purpose. !NAME:Ancestry of Richard Plantagenet & Cecily de Neville, Ancestry of Richard Plantagenet & Cecily de Neville, Ernst-Friedrich Kraentzler, published by author 1978, Chart 1827, p 393 -------------------- St. Joseph of Arimathea Children - - Anna of Arimatha Queen of Britain (Roman) Forrás / Source: http://www.american-pictures.com/genealogy/persons/per08972.htm#0 -------------------- http://www.missouri-mule.com/hebrews.html#Family: Joseph of Arimathea -------------------- http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~jamesdow/s053/f001077.htm///////////////////////// Nathan also used the Roman title Tiberius Claudius Regillensis. Nathan's son Solomon II was a very famous Roman Jewish warrior and Babylonian Exilarch and Ruler of the Roman Jewish colonies in Britain and America. Solomon and his wife owned a large shipping company and their ships were known as Solomon Ships. He used the Roman name Tiberius Claudius Silvanus (Salvius/ Sulam/ Solon ). His son Mar Chunya (Eleazer) of Babylon and Mara was the father of Mar St Joseph of Arimathea and his brother Mar Nathan ben Eli (Nascien/ Tenaufan/ Tasciovanus) King of the Regnoi and Catevaullani. Mar Chunya's brother was Nathan II Ukba the Babylonian Exilarch. St Joseph of Arimathea is called the 'uncle of the Blessed Virgin Mary' according to the Jewish custom of referring to the cousins of one's parents as uncle and aunt. St Joseph of Arimathea was a cousin to Our Lady's father Heli (Eliakim) not his brother. Heli's diminuitive is short for Eliakim or Joachim whereas the father of St Joseph of Arimathea is Eli which is short for Eliezer or Eleazer. Heli's grandmother Lady Esther was the daughter of Solomon II who firstly married Matthan and thus became the grandmother of St Joseph the husband of Our Lady. Secondly she married Levi the grandfather of Heli and was thus the great-grandmother of Our Lady. It is also possible that St Joseph of Arimathea's grandmother Rachel (wife of Solomon II) was a daughter of Eleazar ben Eliud a grandfather of St Joseph (husband of Mary)'s father Jacob. The Arthurian legends speak of St Joseph converting his brother Nascien and the conversion of Evelake King of Sarras. We now know that Nascien is the King known as Tasciovanus of a Roman Jewish warrior family closely connnected to the Babylonian Exilarchs. Evelake was the King of Sarras or the Saracens (Persians). These are the dark complexioned and dark curly haired inhabitants of the Kingdom of the Silures who had been brought to Britain to work the tin mines from Takhte Suleiman by the Exilarch Solomon. Nascien (Nathan) and Evelake were allied by the marriage of Nascien to a sister of Evelake. The dark Silurians of Evelake mainly belonged to E-V13 y-dna. After their defeat by the Romans they fled into the more remote parts of Britain. Julia the Elder was the daughter of the Emperor Augustus by Scribonia whose mother was Sentia (Scota of Hibernia) a red-haired Milesian Jewish Princess from the British Isles. Pomponia Graecina and her grandniece Claudia Rufina (Rufina means red head) were also astounding beauties with their fair skin, blue eyes and striking red hair. These women descended maternally from the Judean-Egyptian Princesses Tamar (Tia) and Asenath (Istnofret/ Scota) daughters of King Zedekiah the last reigning king of Judah. Sentia (Scota of Hibernia) was a Jewish Milesian Princess who was the daughter of Mar Isaac of Sumer (Somerset)and his wife the Princess (Domnu) Tamar (Tia/ Tea) of Brigantia. Sentia married Lucius Scribonius Libo. Princess Tamar [born circa 120 BC] was the daughter of the Jewish High Queen Sena (Awsena/ Asenath) of the Rhodans and her husband the Emperor Senay of Ethiopia. Princess Tamar's sister was the Jewish High Queen of Rhoda Kidara (Ankhka) who was married to Ptolemy XII Pharaoh of Egypt. Princess Tamar was the Guardian of the Red Stone of Jacob and her female followers were known as the Ladies or Maidens of the Stone. Princess Tamar began a new Dynasty of Rhodan Queens. She was known as Our Lady of the Forest (Domnu ha Silva in the Hebreo-Latin language). After the events of the Crucifixion and Resurrection of the Messiah Jesus St Claudia Procula embraced the Faith and shared it with her sister Pomponia Graecina when she returned to Rome. The accusations against Pomponia by which she was cleared by her husband and close relatives has always been believed to refer to her Christian faith. It would seem that her relative Livia Julia (the daughter of Drusus the younger and Livilla) was her goddaughter who Claudius had executed in 43 AD on false charges by the Empress Valeria Messalina of incest and immorality (but really for her embrace of the Christian faith). It is said the Pomponia's relatives in Britain first heard the Gospel in Britain from St Joseph of Arimathea. Others that they were converted in Rome at the home of Pomponia. Or some of them may have become Christian in Britain and other members in Rome. Whatever the case may be it is clear that Claudia Rufina and her relatives were all committed Christians and the foundation of the early house church in Rome. St Paul also mentions Andronikos and Junia as apostles of the Lord before him. In many manuscripts the name is Julia rather than Junia. Andronikos is most likely the apostle St.Andrew and Julia (Junia / Johanna)his wife. She may be the sister of Pomponia Graecina who remained in Britain. Julia fled into Scotland on the defeat of the royal family. Later accounts transferred the legend of St Andrew's travels to Scythia in the East whereas he originally went into Russia, Ukraine and Scotland the lands where the Scythian people lived at that time. The accounts knew that the Andrew was killed in Alban so this was reinterpreted to mean Albanopolis near the Black Sea where the Scythians had dwelt centuries before. miriamhakedosha.blogspot.com

With a full Relation of his Death and Burial. Printed and Sold in Bow Church-Yard. London. THE person we are going to speak of, named Joseph, was a just, holy, pious, and devout man, born at Arimathea, otherwise called Rameth, and afterwards Ramula. It was a city formerly allotted for the Levites, and situated near Sophim on mount Ephraim, near the confines of the tribes of Benjamin and Dan; and is also noted for being the birth place of Samuel the prophet, who here lived and died, and was buried. Here Joseph was born, and from hence was called Joseph of Arimathea; he was the son of one Matthias, who was considerable for his extraction, but more for his justice and authority in Jerusalem, which was the metropolis of that country; his bringing up, during his tender years, was with one Jonathan, who was his brother by the same father and mother, with whom he profited in all kind of sciences, having a good memory, and quick apprehension; so that being yet a child of fifteen years of age, he was praised by all men, in regard of the good affection he had to learning, that the priests and noblest citizens vouchsafed to all his opinion of things that concerned their laws and ordinances. He was born about eight years before the nativity of our blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and about the age of seventeen years, his desire being to search and have an insight, into the laws and customs of the three sects of the Jewish nation, the Pharisees, which is the chiefest, the second the Saducees, and the third the Esseans; to the end he might chuse the better of the three, when he understood them all. He declined the two latter, and adhered to the former, addicting himself to such great austerities and labours, that hearing of one Malachi an holy man, who lived in a desart, cloathed himself with nothing but what the trees brought forth, fed on no other kind of meat but what they freely yielded, and washed himself oftentimes by day and night in cold water; to keep himself chaste, he went and lived with him, and imitated his course of life, for the space of four years, at which time he returned to Jerusalem again, at the age of one and twenty years. But now, though Joseph of Arimathea had intirely devoted himself to the sect of the Pharisees, yet was he not addicted to the vices which too evidently appeared among them, especially hypocrisy; for he was really just in all his dealings, pious without ostentation, and very charitable in private: insomuch that he obtained the praise of the rich, and the benediction of the poor, where-ever he went, and gloried more to be a good man than a great senator, to which dignity his incomparable merits had justly preferred him. However, when Jesus Christ began to take upon him the great work of the ministry of the Gospel, and by his holy life, pure doctrine, and supernatural miracles, had procured many Jews to embrace what he taught them, among the rest of his followers this Joseph of Arimathea became a great admirer of our Saviour's preaching, insomuch that declining the Levitical laws, as then taught in the Jewish church, he became a sincere convert, and followed Christ in all the journeys which he took throughout the land of Judea and Galilee, for the promulgation of the Gospel. But when Jesus was betrayed by Judas, who sold the precious blood of our lord and master, for the value of thirty pence, after the condemnation was passed upon him by Pontius Pilate, the Roman president of Syria, and he was crucified on the cross, for the sins of the whole world.--As soon as he was dead, this Joseph of Arimathea, who was a rich man, went, as the evangelist St. Matthew tells us, chap. xvii, 58, 60, to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered; and when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and laid it in the rock, and he rolled a great Stone to the door of the sepulchre and departed. Now, as for the manner of the sepulchre wherein our Saviour was laid, take the description thereof, as given by Adricomius, in his relation of the Holy Land, and which is as follows: The glorious sepulchre of our Lord, says he, was a new monument, situated about one hundred and eight feet from mount Calvary, and distant one thousand paces from mount Sion. Here it was that Joseph of Arimathea, a noble senator, cut out of a rock that was in his garden, a place of interment, in which he, together with Nicodemus, the blessed Mary, and other women, buried form the cross by consent of Pilate, the body of Jesus, which they had wrapped up in fine linen, perfumed with myrrh and aloes; his head was placed towards the West, from whence it has been the custom ever since, among the Christians, to bury the dead, in many of their church-yards, with the feet towards the East; and those attending his sacred funeral, having rolled a great stone to the door of the monument, they returned to their several habitations. In the mean time, the priests, scribes, and pharisees, endeavouring to hinder the resurrexion of Christ, they set a guard of soldiers to watch the sepulchre, the mouth whereof they closely shut up, and set their seals on the door, that they might not be deceived thro' any frauds, either of his disciples or their own keepers; but this diligence of the Jews, who would have obstructed his rising, did rather increase the miracle, and confirm the faith of our Saviour's resurrection; for, on the third day after his crucifixion, receiving life again, he came to Mary Magdalen, first in the likeness of a gardiner, according to these words of the evangelist, Jesus saith unto her, woman, why weepest thou? she, supposing him to be the gardiner, saith unto him, If thou hast borne him hence, tell me: here thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. John xx. 15. After the death of our Saviour, Joseph of Arimathea led a solitary life, about six months, in commemoration of our Saviour's crucifixion for his salvation, as well as the whole race of mankind; but this time of penitence being compleated, he came again among the apostles, and by St. Peter was adopted one of the seventy-two disciples.--So to make good that great charge which he had took upon him, understanding from Felix, who then governed Jerusalem, that certain noble Christians, men of much honour, and more virtue, were, for preaching the Christian faith, sent to Rome by his commandment, to answer what was objected against them in Cæsar's presence; being desirous of the service, and having special intelligence, that * the torments wherewith they were martyr'd, lessened not their piety, but that they lived contentedly on figs and nuts. He, for this cause, departed presently for Rome, and was encountered with many and grievous hazards by sea; for the ship wherein he sailed was wreck'd in the midst of the Adriatick sea, and about six hundred of them were forced to swim all night long, and at day-break, by God's providence, a Cyrenian ship came in sight, and he, and about fourscore others, who outswam the rest, were taken up, and saved. After he had in this sort escaped, he went to Diarchia, which the Italians call at this day Puteoli, and grew acquainted with Baliturnus, a Jew born, who was a comedian, and in good reputation with Tiberius; by whose means, insinuating himself into the empress Poppeia's knowledge, he determined to beseech her to procure the liberty of those Christians in bondage; and being gratified likewise by her with many gifts, he returned again into his own country. Being now returned home, and having given a full account to the twelve apostles, of what special service he had done for the vindication of the Christian liberty at Rome, he was appointed and ordained to go and preach the Gospel in England; and according as the mission commanded him, he took shipping at Joppa, and sailing with a great deal of difficulty, and meeting many dangerous storms, through the Mediterranean sea, he at length landed at Barrow-bay in Somersetshire, and then proceeding onwards of his journey eleven miles that day; came to Glastenbury in the same county; where, fixing his pilgrim's staff in the ground, it was no sooner set in the earth, but just like Aaron's rod (which blossomed flowers when there was a contest betwixt him and other learned Jews for the priesthood) it was presently turned into a blossoming thorn, which supernatural miracle made the numerous spectators, who came to see this wonder, be very attentive to hear his preaching the Gospel, which was concerning Christ crucified for the redemption of mankind. He arrived at Glastenbury about three years after the death of our blessed Redeemer, being then in the forty-fourth year of his age, doing there such wonderful miracles, that he presently brought to the conversion of Christ above one thousand souls. Besides, as Eusebius, Sozomenes, and Ruffinus, three most faithful ecclesiastical writers, relate, he baptized at the city of Wells, which is within four miles of Glastenbury, eighteen thousand persons one day; so devout, zealous, and holy, was the life of Joseph of Arimathea, that although he found the inhabitants of this island very barbarous and superstitious, yet, by wholesome admonitions, in learnedly as well as strenuously exhorting them to change their erroneous opinions, representing before their eyes, the heinousness of their damnable folly and blindness, he piously persuaded them not to hazard the salvation of their souls, and their posterity, by embracing downright idolatry, in worshipping the sun, moon, and stars, as well as living creatures, both on the earth, as well as in the sea. Thus Joseph of Arimathea, by his godly life and good behaviour, having obtained the good-will of one Ethelbertus, a king then reigning in the western parts of England, and many other nobles, whom he converted to the Christian faith, he founded a most famous abbey at Glastonbury; which was the first Christian church in the world, and by the large endowments settled upon it afterwards by the Christian princes, it became one of the richest monasteries in Christendom. In the antient town of Glastenbury the holy Joseph of Arimathea continued till the day of his death, being forty-two years, so that he was eighty-six at his death; and so venerable was his person then held, that six kings of those parts honoured his corpse by carrying him on royal shoulders to the grave; which was made in the chancel of Glastonbury-abbey, and had a most stately tomb erected over him, with the following inscription: HERE LIES THE BODY OF THAT MOST NOBLE DISCIPLE, RECORDED IN SCRIPTURE BY THE NAME OF JOSEPH OF ARIMATHEA, AND NOTED BY THE FOUR EVANGELISTS, ST. MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE, AND JOHN, FOR HIS BEGGING THE BODY OF OUR BLESSED SAVIOUR WHEN CRUCIFIED TO REDEEM LOST MEN FROM ETERNAL DESTRUCTION, AND BURYING IT IN A TOMB OF HIS OWN MAKING. HE DIED A.D. 45, AGED 86. The church-yard of Glastonbury, formerly called Avolonia, is also noted for the burial-place of king Arthur, whose sepulchre was searched for by King Henry II. and found under a stone, with an inscription on it, declaring whose ashes it covered. And in veneration for Joseph of Arimathea, a lady living at Glastonbury, a little after the death of this holy man, obtained of her husband as much pasture-ground for the good of the inhabitants, as she was able to walk about barefoot in a whole day. But what is more remarkable is the White-Thorn, otherwise called the Holy-Thorn, which to this very time is noted thro' all Europe, for its budding on Christmas-day in the morning, blossoms at noon, and fades at night; and the reason is as abovesaid; for that it was the staff of Joseph of Arimathea, which he fixing in the grouad, it instantly took root where this famous thorn grows, and thereby proclaimed that spot a resting place for its master. And though the time of superstitious popery is in this kingdom abolished, yet do thousands of people, of different opinions, go annually to see this curiosity, which appearing supernatural, and contrary to the course of nature, makes us cry out with Psalmist, O Lord! how marvellous are thy ways! FINIS. GENI: Joseph of Arimathea (abt 005 BCE?, Arimathea, Judea - 27 Jul 82?, Glastonbury, UK). According to the Gospels, he donated his tomb for the body of Jesus after the Jesus' Crucifixion. For the version of St. Joseph of Arimathea from the legend of King Arthur, see Joseph of Arimathea. According to the Talmud, he was the younger brother of the father of the Virgin Mary, that is, he was Mary's uncle and Jesus' great-uncle. In medieval genealogies he is also Mary's uncle, but sometimes the uncle of her husband Joseph. Some enthusiasts venture that he might be identified with Josephus (Jewish: Yosef ben Matityahu, Roman: Titus Flavius Josephus), a Jewish historian and an apologist for the Roman empire. However, Josephus was born in 37 CE, making him a generation younger than Jesus, so it would not be possible he was Jesus' great uncle. The first mention of him in connection with Britain is the 9th century Life of Mary Magdalene by Rabanus Maurus (766-856), Archbishop of Mainz. He first appears as the legendary Keeper of the Holy Grail in Robert de Boron's Joseph d'Arimathie (early 13th century). He settled in Britain after the Crucifixion of Jesus, bringing the Holy Grail with him. The story spawned a rich literature on the same theme. Later tradition says he was a wealthy merchant who owned tin mines in Cornwall, and some popular fiction has him bringing Jesus with him to Britain to be trained by Druids there. Joseph was a metal merchant and may have made many trips to Britain. Although the Anglo-Israelists wish to believe that Joseph went to Ireland with his daughter, more reliable sources claim differently. They say Beli met and married Anna while he was living in Rome with his exiled father. Later, when Beli regained the throne, he invited a group of Christians to live in Britain where they could worship as they pleased; Joseph of Arimathea was one of that group. There are many stories about his being buried there and the miracles the artifacts he took with him have performed. Among the artifacts attributed to him on different occasions are: the Lia Fail (Stone of Destiny) and a staff made from the same thorn tree as the crown of thorns placed on the head of Jesus just before his crucifixion. 186. Joseph Of ARIMATHEA was born abt 35 B.C, died in 82 and was buried after 82. General Notes: [royality1.FTW] St.Joseph of Arimathea: Ancestor of Kings? Early Welsh Genealogies show us that most of the Early British Monarchies claimed descent in one way or another from Beli Mawr (the Great) who can be identified with the Celtic God, Belenos. However, in his mortal form, Beli was said to have been the husband of Anna, the daughter of St.Joseph of Arimathea. At first sight, this claim may seem quite extraordinary. St. Joseph was the man who had taken Christ's body down from the cross and given up his own tomb for Christ's last resting-place. Apocryphal legend tells us that Joseph of Arimathea was the Virgin Mary's paternal uncle. After the resurrection, he left Palestine with Saints Philip, Lazarus, Mary Magdalene & others, and sailed through the Mediterranean to Southern France. Lazarus & Mary stayed in Marseilles, while the others travelled north. At the English Channel, St. Philip sent Joseph, with twelve disciples, to establish Christianity in the most far-flung corner of the Roman Empire. Joseph had been chosen for such a task, because he knew Britain well already. He was a merchant by trade and had conducted business with the Dumnonian tin-miners and Durotrigian lead-miners of Britain many times before. Some even say that he sometimes brought his nephew, Jesus, withhim on these trading missions. Hence the words of Blake's famous hymn,Jerusalem: And did those feet, in ancient time, Walk upon England's mountains green? West Country legend has it that Joseph sailed around Land's End and headed for what was to eventually become Glastonbury in Somerset. Herehis boat ran a shore and, together with his followers, he climbed a nearby hill to survey the surrounding land. Having brought with him a staff grown from Christ's Holy Crown of Thorns, he thrust it into the ground and announced that he and his twelve companions were "Weary All". The thorn staff immediately took miraculous root, and it can be seen there still on Wearyall Hill. Joseph met with the local ruler and soon secured himself twelve hides of land at Glastonbury on which to build the first monastery in Britain.From here he became Britain's evangelist. So it is not surprising that the monarchies of that country wished to establish themselves as St.Joseph's descendants: especially considering the more pagan ancestors already claimed in their pedigrees. By marrying Joseph's daughter to apre-Christian deity, the royal genealogists were able to show that Christianity had been victorious over the old pagan ways. But why specifically choose Beli Mawr as Anna's husband? Chronologically speaking, if Anna married a Briton after her father arrived in this country, then we must assume that she was nearer to Jesus' age than her cousin, Mary (ie. born c. 0). Beli is recorded in the Mabinogion and Welsh Genealogies as having been the father of Caswallon(or Cassivellaunus), the leader of the Celtic tribes who repelled Cæsar's invasions of 55 & 54 bc. He could, therefore, not possibly have married Anna of Arimathea. Moreover, the local ruler whom Joseph received his land gift from, is said to have been Arfyrag (or Arviragus), Beli &Anna's supposed great great grandson. In fact, here we have another case of pagan gods taking on the guise of Christian saints in order to smooth the path of conversion. For Celtic mythology tells us that Beli (or Belenos) did not marry a lady named Anna, but the great Celtic Goddess named Anu. Anu appears in the Celtic World under several names but they all stem from the same route: Anu,Danu, Dana, Don. She was a Mother-Goddess particularly associated with the founding and prosperity of Ireland. She was especially popular in Munster, though her most lasting memorial is a mountain in County Kerry called the "Breast of Anu" (Dá Chích Anann). St. Anne probably owes her popularity in Brittany to this goddess, as do the names of numerousSt.Anne's Wells through out Britain. However, the claims of the British Kings cannot be quite so easily dismissed. The Celtic God-King, Bran Fendigaid (the Blessed), who may ormay not have been an early King of Siluria, is also often accredited with being the man to have brought Christianity to the British Isles.Unfortunately, this is due to a confusion with the historical Cunobelin(Arfyrag's father) who, though he died prior to the Roman Invasion of AD43, was thought to have been taken captive to Rome where he became converted to Christianity. He appears to be the same figure as the Ancestral Fisher-King of Arthurian legend, Bron or Brons, said, in late legend, to have been given the Holy Grail by St.Joseph of Arimathea. This was, in reality Bran's magic cauldron of Celtic myth. Brons was also thought to have been a relative of St.Joseph: the husband of his sister,Enygeus. The mythical Bran was Beli Mawr's grandson: just the right ageto marry St.Joseph's daughter; and Enygeus is a Latin form of Anna. Could Bran have been her husband? Was he blessed by his father-in-law? 27 Jul 0082 In Glastonbury, Wales Abt 38 B.C., Bethlehem, Judea Noted events in his life were: Joseph married (name unknown) Children from this marriage were: + 191 F i. ANNA + 192 F ii. Anna Prophetess ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------- REF: "Britannia Internet Magazine": Joseph of Arimathaea was a wealthy disciple of Jesus, who, according to the book of Matthew 27:57-60, asked Pontius Pilate for permission to take Jesus' dead body in order to prepare it for burial. He also provided the tomb where the crucified Lord was laid until his Resurrection. Joseph is mentioned in a few times in parallel passages in Mark, Luke and John, but nothing further is heard about his later activities. Legend, however, supplies us with the rest of his story by claiming that Joseph, accompanying the Apostle Philip on a preaching mission to Gaul, was sent to Britain for the purpose of converting the island to Christianity. The year 63 AD is commonly given for this "event", with 37 AD sometimes being put forth as an alternative. It was said that Joseph achieved his wealth in the metals trade, and in the course of conducting his business, he probably became acquainted with Britain, at least the southwestern parts of it. Cornwall was a chief mining district and well-known in the Roman empire for its tin and other metals. Some have even said that Joseph was the uncle of Jesus, and that he may have brought the young boy along on one of his business trips to the island. It was only natural, then, that Joseph should have been chosen for the first mission to Britain, and appropriate that he should come first to Glastonbury, that gravitational center for legendary activity in the West Country. Much more was added to Joseph's legend during the middle ages, and he was gradually inflated into a major saint and cult hero. For example, he is said to have brought with him either a cup, said to have been used at the Last Supper and also used to catch the blood dripping from Christ as he hung on the Cross. A variation of this story is that Joseph brought with him two cruets, one containing the blood and the other, the sweat of Christ. Either of these items are known as The Holy Grail, and were the object(s) of the quests of the Knights of King Arthur's Round Table. The legend goes on to suggest that Joseph hid the "Grail" in Chalice Well at Glastonbury for safe-keeping. There is a wide variance of scholarly opinion on this subject, however, and a good deal of doubt exists as to whether Joseph ever came to Britain at all, for any purpose. !NAME:Ancestry of Richard Plantagenet & Cecily de Neville, Ancestry of Richard Plantagenet & Cecily de Neville, Ernst-Friedrich Kraentzler, published by author 1978, Chart 1827, p 393 -------------------- St. Joseph of Arimathea Children - - Anna of Arimatha Queen of Britain (Roman) Forrás / Source: http://www.american-pictures.com/genealogy/persons/per08972.htm#0 -------------------- http://www.missouri-mule.com/hebrews.html#Family: Joseph of Arimathea -------------------- http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~jamesdow/s053/f001077.htm///////////////////////// Nathan also used the Roman title Tiberius Claudius Regillensis. Nathan's son Solomon II was a very famous Roman Jewish warrior and Babylonian Exilarch and Ruler of the Roman Jewish colonies in Britain and America. Solomon and his wife owned a large shipping company and their ships were known as Solomon Ships. He used the Roman name Tiberius Claudius Silvanus (Salvius/ Sulam/ Solon ). His son Mar Chunya (Eleazer) of Babylon and Mara was the father of Mar St Joseph of Arimathea and his brother Mar Nathan ben Eli (Nascien/ Tenaufan/ Tasciovanus) King of the Regnoi and Catevaullani. Mar Chunya's brother was Nathan II Ukba the Babylonian Exilarch. St Joseph of Arimathea is called the 'uncle of the Blessed Virgin Mary' according to the Jewish custom of referring to the cousins of one's parents as uncle and aunt. St Joseph of Arimathea was a cousin to Our Lady's father Heli (Eliakim) not his brother. Heli's diminuitive is short for Eliakim or Joachim whereas the father of St Joseph of Arimathea is Eli which is short for Eliezer or Eleazer. Heli's grandmother Lady Esther was the daughter of Solomon II who firstly married Matthan and thus became the grandmother of St Joseph the husband of Our Lady. Secondly she married Levi the grandfather of Heli and was thus the great-grandmother of Our Lady. It is also possible that St Joseph of Arimathea's grandmother Rachel (wife of Solomon II) was a daughter of Eleazar ben Eliud a grandfather of St Joseph (husband of Mary)'s father Jacob. The Arthurian legends speak of St Joseph converting his brother Nascien and the conversion of Evelake King of Sarras. We now know that Nascien is the King known as Tasciovanus of a Roman Jewish warrior family closely connnected to the Babylonian Exilarchs. Evelake was the King of Sarras or the Saracens (Persians). These are the dark complexioned and dark curly haired inhabitants of the Kingdom of the Silures who had been brought to Britain to work the tin mines from Takhte Suleiman by the Exilarch Solomon. Nascien (Nathan) and Evelake were allied by the marriage of Nascien to a sister of Evelake. The dark Silurians of Evelake mainly belonged to E-V13 y-dna. After their defeat by the Romans they fled into the more remote parts of Britain. Julia the Elder was the daughter of the Emperor Augustus by Scribonia whose mother was Sentia (Scota of Hibernia) a red-haired Milesian Jewish Princess from the British Isles. Pomponia Graecina and her grandniece Claudia Rufina (Rufina means red head) were also astounding beauties with their fair skin, blue eyes and striking red hair. These women descended maternally from the Judean-Egyptian Princesses Tamar (Tia) and Asenath (Istnofret/ Scota) daughters of King Zedekiah the last reigning king of Judah. Sentia (Scota of Hibernia) was a Jewish Milesian Princess who was the daughter of Mar Isaac of Sumer (Somerset)and his wife the Princess (Domnu) Tamar (Tia/ Tea) of Brigantia. Sentia married Lucius Scribonius Libo. Princess Tamar [born circa 120 BC] was the daughter of the Jewish High Queen Sena (Awsena/ Asenath) of the Rhodans and her husband the Emperor Senay of Ethiopia. Princess Tamar's sister was the Jewish High Queen of Rhoda Kidara (Ankhka) who was married to Ptolemy XII Pharaoh of Egypt. Princess Tamar was the Guardian of the Red Stone of Jacob and her female followers were known as the Ladies or Maidens of the Stone. Princess Tamar began a new Dynasty of Rhodan Queens. She was known as Our Lady of the Forest (Domnu ha Silva in the Hebreo-Latin language). After the events of the Crucifixion and Resurrection of the Messiah Jesus St Claudia Procula embraced the Faith and shared it with her sister Pomponia Graecina when she returned to Rome. The accusations against Pomponia by which she was cleared by her husband and close relatives has always been believed to refer to her Christian faith. It would seem that her relative Livia Julia (the daughter of Drusus the younger and Livilla) was her goddaughter who Claudius had executed in 43 AD on false charges by the Empress Valeria Messalina of incest and immorality (but really for her embrace of the Christian faith). It is said the Pomponia's relatives in Britain first heard the Gospel in Britain from St Joseph of Arimathea. Others that they were converted in Rome at the home of Pomponia. Or some of them may have become Christian in Britain and other members in Rome. Whatever the case may be it is clear that Claudia Rufina and her relatives were all committed Christians and the foundation of the early house church in Rome. St Paul also mentions Andronikos and Junia as apostles of the Lord before him. In many manuscripts the name is Julia rather than Junia. Andronikos is most likely the apostle St.Andrew and Julia (Junia / Johanna)his wife. She may be the sister of Pomponia Graecina who remained in Britain. Julia fled into Scotland on the defeat of the royal family. Later accounts transferred the legend of St Andrew's travels to Scythia in the East whereas he originally went into Russia, Ukraine and Scotland the lands where the Scythian people lived at that time. The accounts knew that the Andrew was killed in Alban so this was reinterpreted to mean Albanopolis near the Black Sea where the Scythians had dwelt centuries before. miriamhakedosha.blogspot.com
