“The Immortality Key: Uncovering the Secret History of the Religion with No Name” by Brian C. Muraresku is a groundbreaking exploration of the role of psychedelics in the human experience of the Divine throughout Western history. The book presents a controversial answer to a 2,000-year-old mystery that could potentially shake the Church to its foundations.
The book connects the lost, psychedelic sacrament of Greek religion to early Christianity, exposing the true origins of Western Civilization. Muraresku’s decade-long investigation takes the reader through Greece, Germany, Spain, France, and Italy, offering unprecedented access to the hidden archives of the Louvre and the Vatican.
The book explores a little-known connection between the best-kept secret in Ancient Greece and Christianity. It delves into the real story of Jesus and the origins of the world’s largest religion, Christianity. Today, 2.4 billion people are Christian, but do any of them really know how it all started?
Before Jerusalem, before Rome, before Mecca—there was Eleusis: the spiritual capital of the ancient world. It promised immortality to Plato and the rest of Athens’s greatest minds with a simple formula: drink this potion, see God. The Ancient Greek sacrament was buried when the newly Christianized Roman Empire obliterated Eleusis in the fourth century AD.
Renegade scholars in the 1970s claimed the Greek potion was psychedelic, just like the original Christian Eucharist that replaced it. In recent years, vindication for the disgraced theory has been quietly mounting in the laboratory. The rapidly growing field of archaeological chemistry has proven the ancient use of visionary drugs. And with a single dose of psilocybin, the psycho-pharmacologists at Johns Hopkins and NYU are now turning self-proclaimed atheists into instant believers.
No one has ever found hard, scientific evidence of drugs connected to Eleusis, let alone early Christianity, until now. Armed with key documents never before translated into English, convincing analysis, and a captivating spirit of quest, Muraresku mines science, classical literature, biblical scholarship, and art to deliver the hidden key to eternal life.
In summary, “The Immortality Key” is a thrilling read that explores the use of psychedelics in ancient Christianity and provides evidence for psychedelics in ancient wine, beer, and culture. It adds to evidence that psychedelics were part of life and religion in ancient times.
