Défense du paganisme : Contre les Galiléens

By Julian the Apostate

C’est à Antioche, quelques mois avant sa mort tragique, que l’Empereur Julien (331-363) rédige un pamphlet Contre les Galiléens, qui dénonce avec vigueur los angeles prétention à l’universalité de l. a. petite secte chrétienne. Mais au-delà de l. a. critique de cette nouvelle faith, c’est à une véritable apologie du paganisme qu’il se livre. 

Il n’était alors pas trop tard pour empêcher le triomphe annoncé du christianisme, mais le règne de Julien fut beaucoup trop bref. S’il l’avait emporté, los angeles face du monde en eût été changée et il ne serait pas resté dans l’Histoire comme l’Apostat... 

Rétrospectivement, ce texte apparaît donc comme le chant du cygne de los angeles faith grecque.
