Modern scholars have unanimously rejected the book’s arguments as erroneous and based on a flawed understanding of Babylonian religion,   but variations of them are accepted among some groups of evangelical Protestants. It was expanded ingoing through many editions. A 3rd edition was published in a 7th in a popular edition in The book dso been published by various Protestant publishing houses over the years, one being Chick Publicationswhich is still publishing the book as of Hislop builds on the Panbabylonian school of Hyperdiffusionismwhich was common in the 19th century, to argue that Classical and Babilnias Near Eastern civilization took its inspiration from Babylon.
From this, he derives the argument that the mystery religions of Late Antiquity were actually offshoots of one ancient religion founded at the Tower of Babel. Panbabylonism has since been relegated to pseudohistory by some 20th-century scholars. Much dps Hislop’s work centers on his association of the legendary Ninus and his semi-historical wife Semiramis with the Biblical Nimrod as her husband and her ddos, with their incestuous male offering being Tammuz.
Hellenistic histories of the Ancient Near East tended to conflate their faint recollections of the deeds of ancient kings into legendary figures who exerted far more power than any ancient king ever did. In Assyria, als invented an eponymous founder of Nineveh named Ninus, who supposedly ruled 52 years over an empire comparable to the Persian Empire at its greatest extent. The Clementine literature made the association in the 4th Century AD.
An influential belief throughout the Middle Ages was that Ninus was the inventor of Idolatry,  a concept that Hislop clearly drew upon. However, Hislop wrote before the historical records of the ancient near east had been thoroughly decoded and studied, that cast doubt in the decades after he wrote whether there was any such figure as Ninus, and the Greek authors whom he quoted lacked credibility on the subject.
The Two Babylons heavily relies on Austen Henry Layard ‘s publications of his excavations at Nineveh, which had only been just discovered in This gave his work an appearance of being well-researched at the time of its kas. For example, Hislop linked the name of Easter with Astartethe Phoenician fertility goddess by citing Layard’s recent discovery of Astarte’s Assyrian name, Ishtarwhich Hislop took to be “identical” to Easter.

What means the term Easter itself? It is not a Christian name. It bears its Chaldean origin on its very forehead. Easter is nothing else than Astarte, one of the titles of Beltisthe queen of heaven, whose name, as pronounced by the people Nineveh, was evidently identical with that now in bbabilonias use in this country.
That name, as found by Layard on the Assyrian monuments, is Ishtar. The claim that Easter is derived from Ishtar has been questioned. Hislop ultimately claimed to trace Catholic doctrines back to the worship of Nimrodasserting that the Roman Catholic Church represented Whore of Babylon of the Book of Revelation and that “the Pope himself is truly and dls the lineal representative of Belshazzar “.
In the note by the editor of the 7th edition, which was published init was claimed, “that no one, so far as we babiloias aware, has ventured to challenge the accuracy of the historical proofs adduced in support of the startling announcement on babilonis title page. For example, Lester L.
Grabbe has highlighted the fact that Hislop’s entire argument, particularly his association of Ninus with Nimrodis based on a misunderstanding of historical Babylon and its religion. Inbabllonias critical edition was published. Some fundamentalist Protestants still regard Hislop’s book as proof that the Roman Catholic Church is, in fact, the continuation of ancient Babylonian religion. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
