Who is Mithras? Say, simply put, he is the prototype on which Rome has modeled the imaginary character called Jesus Christ. If the god-man Mithras comes from an ancient legend, his historical existence is attested, unlike that of Jesus. The story of Mithras is well known, as the Gospels tell us verbatim, while attributing it to another.
The true story of Mithras took place 2000 years before JC, so about 4 thousand years ago. Long after, the Roman Empire was brought to invent Jesus Christ -a contemporary of Julius Caesar with the same initials- who lived the very life of Mithras but two millennia later. Why Rome has mounted this huge lie, I have fully explained. The Jesus case is so fraught with consequences, still present, that’s why it is important to come back again and again.

It turns out that the Mithraic religion was very popular in the Roman Empire, specially since the 3rd century BCE. Under the name of Sol Invictus was an initiatory religion whose aim was enlightenment. The young emperor Heliogabalus, a native of Syria, was one of the devoted followers. He contributed greatly to its introduction in Rome and the empire. Mithraism reached its peak around the 3rd century CE. In Europe and around the Mediterranean basin, there are many temples dedicated to Mithras. They are called mithraeums. Look around, young Europeans and Mediterraneans friends, you will surely find one or two in the surroundings.
Brittany is particularly rich in various traces. A chosen land for the footprints of the multiple cultural and religious currents. The presence of Mithras, too, requires it. I think the Lanleff temple, in Côtes d’Armor, is a genuine mithraeum, a temple to Mithras.
No wonder the strong presence of Mithras in Britain, because if one believes the Gallic tradition, Mithras is a Hyperborean, who came down from the Four Northern Islands, since such is the popular name of the mother ship Hyperborea. He came down to earth in Celtic land. His Celtic name was Esus, later transformed into Jesus. Britons still revere him under the name of Saint-Yves, or Sant Erwann. This evidence does not prevent cult “experts” to support that the worship of Mithras was brought from the East by the Roman legionaries and by street merchants. (Source)Wikipedia These are mostly specialists in nearly and anything. Mithraism was born 4000 years ago here in Breton soil, and it spread slowly across the whole of Europe, across Mare Nostrum up to Syria, Asia and Africa, as will spread the worship of Jesus 20 centuries later.
Baptistery of Ravenna is linked to the cult of Mithras. Like many other medieval churches. Like many Roman temples. Most medieval religious buildings are not Christians, they are ancient mithraeum Christianized in the 14th century. Before the late invention of Jesus, Mithras was everywhere, in every church or chapel, and each intersection as an ordeal. Yet Mithras, who speaks? Who remembers? Who knows its history, the true sacred history? It’s a safe bet that Mithraism is the religion who built churches and Romanesque crypt. It’s a safe bet that Mithraism is another name of Sol Invictus. It’s a safe bet that Mithras was a contemporary of Rama: he sacrifices a bull – his favorite symbol- now Rama appears at the end of the era of Taurus (or Cow). Mithras can be dated around 2000 BCE, as Rama.
So ?? Is Mithras another name for Rama, another aspect of this multiple demigod? Or was he only part of Rama people, kind of successor, or a general of Rama? His name MITHRA can be read “MYTH (of) RA” or “WITH (MIT in German) RA”. Yes, but MIT HRA can also be read WITH HERA. A man between the women? But Mithra is it only a man? He is represented with a zigounette, but also with nibars. So what ? Another hermaphrodite god ? (source)http://www.agoravox.fr/actualites/religions/article/mithra-est-il-a-l-origine-du-mythe-87254
The new religion
Is Jesus a pure invention? His historical reality has never been acquired. On the contrary, his similarities with many previous prophets shows how his character was built by the Roman legates. One of this mythical prophets is Mithra, whose life could be located between 2000 and 500 BCE, depending on the sources. Anyway the parallel with Jesus’ life makes you feel dizzy. Mithra was born of a virgin on December 25th. After his birth, Mithra was worshiped by shepherds. He was a great pioneer and an itinerant master. Mithra received the names of the Light, the Truth and the Good Shepherd. He was considered “the Way, the Truth and the Light”. He was also called the “Redeemer”, the “Savior”, the “Messiah”.
He was identified with both the Lion and the Lamb. The transitus (Mithra’s trip with the bull on his shoulders) recalls the Via Crucis of the Gospel story. His sacred day was Sunday, the “Lord’s Day”. He had his principal feast on the date which would then become Easter, corresponding to his resurrection. He had 12 companions or disciples. He performed miracles. He was buried in a tomb. After three days, he stood again.
His resurrection was celebrated every year. His religion included a Eucharist or “Lord’s dinner”. The words of the Last Supper are those of the followers of Mithra. Mithraism was a religion of salvation: the sacrifice of Mithra has for end the redemption of mankind. The attributes of the pater – or great insider – were the Phrygian cap, the stick and the ring, very similar to the miter, the crosier and the ring of Christian bishops. Note also that the mitraism is associated not only with the shape of the bishops’ miter, but also with its name: miter obviously comes from Mithra.
Originally from Celtia, worship of Esus or Yves has spread from the second millennium BCE throughout Western Europe. Much later, this cult returned from East as Yves / Esus became Mithra. Originally from Persia, the new worship has spread throughout the Roman Empire starting from – 68, and disappeared by the 3rd century AD. Why this disappearance? Because it has been replaced by the Christian religion, copied on his model. The cult of Mithra was named Sol Invictus, the unconquered sun. And his initiate worshipers were the Sons of the Sun.
Be careful, Mithras is not the only one to serve as model for Jesus Christ. A bunch of semigods or prophets could be considered as potential models for Jesus: Osiris, Henoch, Rama, Apollonius of Tyana, Heliogabalus, Constantine and many others. Incidentally, all of them wore the title of Christ.
