    This book was written about a hundred years ago. It gives a remarkable expose on the heretical roots of Catholic tradition and Christian holidays. This book often turns out to be a source material in many other works dealing with similar subject matter. It is written in a flawless style with painstakingly arranged footnotes. Read this book carefully, it requires an above average degree of literacy.

    intense book fascinating collection of information that shows how widespread the knowledge of God was in the ancient world. Hislop presents so much evidence it is overwhelming, but one might draw different conclusions from the data. The primary thing the reader should realize is that the messianic hope is present in all civilizations and that mother-goddess worship is a perversion of God's true intention for man. God promised the solution to the issue of sin in Genesis 3:14 through the promise o [...]

    For anyone that is not satisfied with accepting what we are told is the truth but, likes to see the evidence historically and biblically this is the book for you. However, Alexander Hislop highlights church practices that do not have their root in the bible at all.Extremely, challenging yet I believe necessary for the seeker of trutheakthruinternational

    cambriawillnotyield.c"This book made me sick at heart because the author goes places where I do not want to go but where I think I might be required to go. He makes the case that the Roman Catholic Church is the spiritual counterpart of Babylon. I suppose this is an old charge, but Hislop’s case is very convincing because the details he presents of the old Babylonian power structures and ethos so resemble the structures and ethos of the Roman Church that one can’t just dismiss his charges as [...]

    From the opening premise through the final chapter, the topical book "The Two Babylons" will take you on a virtual journey through dark and terrifying passages-chilled by the presence of a ancient evil. With each successive chapter the motivations and intricate methods of this evil is exposed to the light until one incontrovertible conclusion is established. The depth of investigation and intricate "knitting" together of the details are the result of Hislop's life's work. This is one of the most [...]

    The Two Babylons gave additional information to my studies, and was very accurate in providing evidence of pagan rites mixed with Traditional Christianity.

    Another book on conspiracies and the like. Although I would like this book to be right about its assertions concerning the Roman Catholic church, it has now been shown that it is extremely inaccurate, and connections between "the two babylons" are actually strained.

    Not the easiest book to read, very dry. But Hislop shows how ancient Babylonian religion crept into Christianity and created the Catholic Church, from nuns and monks to the Pope's crown and even the bogus deification of the Virgin Mary.

    Not the easiest read to me. I have skipped around and read what interested me most. However, tons of good information.

    A Scottish Protestant minister, Alexander Hislop compares ancient Babylonian beliefs and customs to practices of the Roman Catholic Church.  It should be noted that Hislop isn't 100% accurate in all of his ideas, particularly with regard to the book of Revelation and his attempt to grant the Catholic Church exclusivity to the identity of Babylon the Great (hereafter, BTG) described in Rev. 17.  Hislop's parallels between ancient Babylon and Catholicism include:- Revelation's imagery of BTG as [...]

    After becoming aware of some very strange anti-Catholic ideas floating around, I finally traced them back to this even stranger book. It's really sad that this virulently anti-Catholic and anti-Negro book still remains so influential. What was clear from the get go was that Hislop has never heard that correlation does not equal causality. This book is a collection of correlations between every conceivable pagan name or practice with the practice of Catholicism. The etymological stretches in some [...]

    There are some good elements to this book but overall it is not to be commended. The history of Babylonian worship is good, but the way he ties it to Roman Catholic worship (every jot and tittle) is poor logic. Using his logic, almost any practice, religious or non-religious can be shown to have pagan origins and therefore should be discouraged. Some of his points (particularly on Mary worship) make sense, but generally he is too over-the-top.

    Interesting premises, but horrible research abounds throwing the conclusions into question. See /book/show/14

    In a word: imaginative. For a more serious treatment of the same topic, read GH Pember's "Mystery Babylon the Great".

    Interesting theory and lots of Bible history, but I wonder if the conclusions are a bit far-fetched

    Una perspectiva tradicional del tema. Carece de actualización y no contempla aspectos y factores que en la actualidad se han hecho evidentes.

    Hislop has thoroughly researched his topic. Tough as it is, it is many times more fascinating. Backing his conclusions with both sacred and historical sources, Hislop makes a compelling argument for the identity of as described in the sacred text of Revelation. It's a source that this reader will have to reread time and again to completely follow. But, for the time being, I'm compelled to accept his conclusions based on his expertise. An in-depth understanding of the world's religions and mythos [...]

    Very dry and hard to read. On the upside, I am amazed at how much this man knew during the timeframe he lived. At the time this came out, it would have made a lot of sense. But, many advances in technology have been made that just don't support this worldview (i.e. relativity and quantum mechanics). But, I do appreciate his sincerity. I believe he was the last great Christian apologist who tried to bridge the gap of post modernism that separates society from Christian theology.

    I read this book in the late 60's. Excellent reference material proving how pagan the so-called Christian churches are since the 4th century with the apostasy. Constantine, the pagan Roman emperor, started the teaching of the Trinity as a Christian teaching then and with it came many other false teachings like the immortality of the soul taught by the Greeks, like Plato, also the Hell Fire doctrine. These pagan concepts date back to Egypt.

    Excellent book for anyone who wants to know where some beliefs come from since they are not found in the Bible. Up to the reader to decide if the connection made is something to think about when a member of many of today's Christian denominations. Certainly the Catholic Church is under fire more than any other group.
