For some, the New Chronology requires no introduction, at the same time there are way more people who have never heard about it. Sometimes I wonder whether we would even be talking about the lost, or stolen history without the effort put in by Mr. Fomenko and Mr. I hope this little thread influences at least one person to consider reading The New Chronology series, for, once you do, you cannot go back to the official narrative without questioning everything you see.

Almost everything you thought you knew about history is wrong. And Jesus lived and died in the 12th century A. While the finer points of the Fomenko theory are as convoluted and confusing as you might expect, the guiding principle is that recorded history before the 11thth centuries is generally unreliable for various reasons. Virtually all extant documents from the period before that time, Fomenko writes, are untrustworthy, due to a number of factors: poor timekeeping devices, inconsistent record-keeping, limited availability of surviving documents, lack of movable type, and so on.
For example, Fomenko believes that most Eurasian history between the third and 11th centuries A. A similar thing happened with the Bible, Fomenko claims. He writes that the Bible we know today is largely built on 11thth-century fabrications and revisions to older texts and that these fabrications and revisions actually reflect events that were happening in the 11thth centuries.
So, Fomenko theorizes that the Babylonian captivity described in the Bible in which in the Jews of the Kingdom of Judah were invaded by Babylon and held captive there for 70 years in the sixth century B. Why exactly Fomenko argues all of this and how he attempts to prove these claims is another matter entirely. Apart from his creation of the New Chronology, Fomenko is a notable mathematician who has earned his doctorate, taught at Moscow State Lomonosov University, become a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, won a State Prize of the Russian Federation for mathematics, and published some works.
When he began digging into such data himself, he concluded that many lunar eclipses and other celestial events could not have occurred when historians said they did and thus major historical lynchpins could be off by hundreds of years. His calculations, which have since been criticized by other writers, showed that certain celestial events that were said to have occurred in the time of Jesus had to have actually occurred some 1, years later.
Fomenko picked up these ideas, added in a host of dubious mathematical calculations related to the astronomical record, and so the New Chronology was born. In the decades since, Fomenko has published many volumes on the subject, although his only visibility outside of Russia is largely confined to the corners of the internet that feed on fringe theories.
History — and this becomes truer and truer the further back you go — is always a reconstruction to some extent. The issue of just how faithfully documented history reflects real events is very complex and requires a special study.
After this look at Anatoly Fomenko and the New Chronology, read up on other bizarre fringe theories including the Paul is dead rumor popular among some Beatles fans as well as the belief that the moon landing was faked.

To the original version has been added new subchapters, most notably with regard to three fundamental subjects: the true date of the Antikythera mechanism c. Could the Navarrese company have given its alternative name to the place? The problem is that, according to historians, the place was "already long known by that name" i. Unless of course the chronology linguists rely on is deeply flawed, and that "Ancient" Greece is actually much more recent than they think!

This article relies too much on references to primary sources. Please improve this by adding secondary or tertiary sources. The various peoples identified in ancient and medieval history, from the Scythians , Huns , Goths and Bulgars , through the Polyane , Duleby , Drevliane and Pechenegs , to in more recent times, the Cossacks , Ukrainians , and Belarusians , are nothing but elements of the single Russian Horde. Fomenko explains the seemingly vast differences in the biographies of these figures as resulting from difference in languages, points of view and time-frame of the authors of said accounts and biographies. Fomenko claims the Hagia Sophia is actually the biblical Temple of Solomon.
