Gnostic Media is proud to announce the completion of our latest video project!

The Pharmacratic Inquisition DVD is available at www.GnosticMedia.com.

On 07-07-07 we released a DVD companion for our book, Astro-Theology & Shamanism. This DVD companion contains much of the information and imagery contained within book itself (without all of the heavy footnotes), as well as much of the information contained within the free video (available at GnosticMedia.com) titled, "The Pharmacratic Inquisition."

The book and video question the historical existence of Jesus Christ and shed light on other religions such as Mithraism, Hinduism, Judaism, as well as indigenous shamanism, showing the origins of shamanism through psychedelic/entheogenic drug use, sun and star worship, and fertility and sex worship.

This DVD is a followup and updated release of the online 2004 video by the same name.

For those interested in more information and references, please see the book by Jan Irvin and Andrew Rutajit - Astrotheology & Shamanism or go to http://www.pharmacratic-inquisition.com or http://www.gnosticmedia.com

John Marco Allegro (born in London 17 February 1923, died 17 February 1988) was a freethinker who challenged orthodox views on the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Bible and the history of religion.

After service in the Royal Navy during World War II, Allegro started to train for the Methodist ministry but transferred to a degree in Oriental Studies at the University of Manchester. In 1953 he was invited to become the first British representative on the international team working on the recently discovered Dead Sea Scrolls in Jordan. The following year he was appointed assistant lecturer in Comparative Semitic Philology at Manchester, and held a succession of lectureships there until he resigned in 1970 to become a full-time writer. In 1961 he was made Honorary Adviser on the Dead Sea scrolls to the Jordanian government. What happened next will no doubt change the course of religious history! Watch this short video and see for yourself.
