Hello Charles, I just read your essay on Mr. Osman's new book. I am a big Osman fan and agree with you that he has a lot to say. You kind of stole my thunder by connecting the piercing of Osirus, Tutenkhamun, and "The Jesus!" No matter great job!
I think the order of the essenes had high priests, so to speak - leaders whose duty it was to re-create, re-dramatise the death of "The lord."
When I mention Osman on other sites, I get complete silence!
Oh well, life goes on.
PS I am enjoying your on-line book as well.
