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.
