Riassunto: 'And did those feet in ancient time, Walk upon England's mountain's green, And was the holy Lamb of God, On England's pleasant pastures seen'. Do William Blake's lyrics for the popular hymn 'Jerusalem' reveal an extraordinary insight into the so-called 'missing years of Jesus' - the 18 years that are unaccounted for in the Bible from when Jesus was a boy of 12 to his sudden reappearance at the age of 30? Archaeologist and classical scholar Dennis Price has investigated the clues in Blake's evocative poem and has paid meticulous attention to the accounts in the ancient Aramaic and Greek versions of the Bible, and he's also conducted an exhaustive and unprecedented study into the myths and legends of Christ in Britain. With the assistance of specialists in their own fields and by viewing this enthralling subject as a modern missing person's investigation, Dennis Price has pieced together the various pieces of the jigsaw and now presents compelling and highly original evidence that Christ did indeed visit Britain in the company of Joseph of Arimathea 'in ancient times'. The weight of new material suggests that Christ remained in Britain for several years before eventually returning to his homeland in the east, and this truly extraordinary book now provides a wealth of new information for all those who are intensely curious about this otherwise undocumented period in the life of the most famous person the world's ever known. The implications are astonishing and they are presented here, in 'the greatest story never told'.
L'autore: Dennis Price began working in archaeology in the early 1970s and is now regarded as an expert on Stonehenge and the many strange stories associated with the ruins. An unusual line in a poem by William Blake was the catalyst for a four-year investigation into the possibility that Jesus himself had once visited this site, which was held in such awe by the ancient Britons and others who were drawn to the mysterious monument from across Europe 'in ancient times'. From Stonehenge, Dennis Price's unique and unparalleled investigation led him to the location of the world's first church in Glastonbury and then to other remote landscapes and ancient structures around western Britain. The original evidence he unearthed from a fresh examination of these sites and from a close study of contemporary accounts written in Latin, Greek, Aramaic and Phoenician astonished him, and led directly to the writing of this undeniably ground-breaking book. An archaeologist, writer and performer, he is an expert on Stonehenge, with a particular interest in the ancient myths, legends and historical accounts of these enigmatic ruins. He was the last archaeologist to set foot inside Silbury Hill, Britain's only pyramid, before work began to seal it off forever, while he's collaborated with specialists and experts in their field the world over in an attempt to uncover the real history of these monuments that continue to captivate people the world over, thousands of years after they were first built. He currently lives in Devon, in the south of England, with his wife, two children and black dog.
