Kostadino Paleologos roams through mysterious libraries all over the world, to find the mythic Repository of Alexandria, following clues in lost, forbidden texts. The clues tell of a soul wishing for redemption. Its many lives protest history’s treatment and look forward to a life more ordinary. He finds the Idammah-Gan Codex a catalogue of its lives; it is a singularly dangerous book, safely read only in daylight. He decides to raise the soul’s next incarnation Adam to reject prophesy and teach him the error of religion - the many flaws all religions have in interpreting and explaining faith. Kostadino’s actions throw all prophesies and revelations into question. The Luciferian Church conjures and sends demons to find them while the Vatican sends Templars to kill them.
Years later Kostadino and his charge finally evade the Vatican, Luciferians, Templars and Dark Nobility. They all converge on the unsuspecting rebels and conjure LUCIFER who cajoles, reasons and finally orders Adam to accept his destiny, but he refuses. With this refusal, Adam becomes every Messiah: the Templar’s Tres Majestus Hermes, Freemasonry’s Maitreya, Xian Christ, all of them.
Kostadino taught his adopted son what he learned while looking for the Repository of Alexandria. Those far-flung, dusty, old rooms were filled with almost perfect thoughts and nearly complete ethics from the geniuses of history; however, no one had found the whole truth. All came as close as their backgrounds, or culture, could bring them, but fell short. Kostadino taught him that we cannot see the truth to which every faith aspires because we are flawed. We see, hear, smell, taste and touch with inadequate tools. Even intellect is limited, unable to completely digest truth. Truth is either too large, or too small, to see and we absorb only what we can from each narrow perspective.
This saves the world from the fire, brimstone and destruction, prophesied in Biblical Revelation. ADAM is still expected to fulfill someone’s prophecy, but will deal with each, individually, as they come. He will show the followers of prophesy where their faith deviates from truth, as well as revealing how every religion mistakenly espouses their own truth above any other. Religion has faith outside reason, but loses truth in the translation, hoping that reason can explain faith. Religion strives to interpret something too vast to be understood. ADAM will show them the error of their ways.
In turn, each religion will have to find their own truth, or come as close to it as they are capable. It will be a long road.
“The Byzantines never took part in Crusades. They lived in relative harmony, competing in trade with everyone around them. It was the ideal soil for the growth of a vibrant culture. This cast the stagnant Catholic west further into the dark. The Dark Ages were dark, because they lived in the Byzantine shadow, its light revealing their faults.”Kostadino Paleologos
“Forgiveness is not included in our vocabulary, Mordecai. That is a trait of the Supreme Weakling. Scream and bellow all you want; I don’t care. Your continued belligerence is further proof that this is the proper punishment. Mordecai, it’s for your own good. We need a strong and proper leadership.”“You’re right, Balzeer. You’re right I will do whatever you require. I will do everything that you want.”Balzeer McGrath
““Am I really cursed, like old Paula said? Damned, from the devil and from hell?” Adam asked evenly.“You’re blessed. You come from a preeminent family, the most respected from among the families of the Nobility.” Balzeer continued, “What does this Paula know of the devil? Does she know that he is an angel who was cast out and looked down upon by his heavenly fellows? That he is the eternal foe of the Catholics, with their white-bearded geriatric and His fair-haired second son?”“Am I then? Am I from hell?” Adam continued."You are not. You will rule it, but you’re not from there. You’re flesh and blood, like me, however, you’re also divine, like your father. You are Morningstar’s heir. Just as he now rules hell, so shall you,” Balzeer responded haughtily.”Balzeer McGrath
““I’ve heard the troubadours call it courtly or romantic love. Chaste love,” Simon said. “Those wandering minstrels wouldn’t understand,” Ursus snapped. “They talk about hidden glances and secret meanings. None of that ever happened with us. Our love went beyond anything written in verse, or which will ever be understood. Sever your limbs, all of them, and then put them back in such a way that it seems that they were never severed. This is the connection we shared. We were one, not like the romances, full of hidden and double meanings. We were a single soul, not two connected. A single soul.” Ursus stopped, not knowing how to explain further. Finally, Simon understood his love for her; no explanation was necessary.“Put limbs onto someone born without them, or give sight to someone who is blind, and that was what you two were,” Simon said.“Exactly,” Ursus exhaled, “exactly.””Ursus explaining his love: Chapter 16 - Dark Revelation
““Do you live your life for the moments when you’re happy? Do you live your life to feel good? To experience joy and to indulge the senses that give you pleasure? Good food. Good drink. Good sex. Good shit. Good piss. Rest when you’re tired. Why do people live their lives? “When you look at a cripple, begging for alms in the street, do you feel sorry for him? Does that mean that you think your life is better? This is presumptuous and arrogant. Would it be irony if they were happier in their life that you are in yours? Would you envy them then? Beloved children and pets are to be envied. They live their lives without responsibility, for their food and shelter is provided. They are shown affection and are cared for.””Ursus bitterly questions life: Chapter 18 - Promise of Life Rewarded
