Flemish Author Patrick Bernauw Presents "Merlin’s Doomsday Prophecies"

Patrick Bernauw has become a permanent figure on the Ancient Digger these days, and of course since most of his literary works pertain to historical myths, legends, and truths, I think you know why I appreciate his expertise in the field.

Patrick's latest work explains the history of prophecies and the apocalyptic outcries of the texts written centuries ago, including visions from the legendary Arthurian figure Merlin.

There are far more "apocalyptic visions" than the ones that now seem extremely fashionable, featuring Nostradamus or the Mayan Calendar. And they don’t speak about 2012. These Doomsday Prophecies mostly regenerate very ancient symbols of religion, myth and magic. And the stories concerning the End of the World are often linked with a Creation Myth… and the birth of a New World Order.

TheCreation Myth at the beginning of every mythic circle often includes a tale of destruction: the Old World has to be destroyed and rebuilt into a New World. Hindu mythology, for instance, shows us vast cycles of birth and death for the universe, calculates many world-ages and defines the powers of destruction and creation extensively. In Greek mythology we encounter the destruction theme in the never ending war between the Titans and the Olympians, in Norse mythology between the primal Ice and Fire giants.

This is very interesting. I love reading about ancient prophecies. I don't really have much belief in modern interpretations of them, but they are always interesting.
