Emmanuel Velikovsky on the worship of Saturn

Emmanuel Velikovsky


‘A few peoples through consecutive planetary ages kept fidelity to the ancient Saturn, or Kronos, or Brahma,(22) whose age was previous to that of Jupiter. Thus the Scythians were called Umman-Manda by the Chaldeans(23)—”People of Manda”—and Manda is the name of Saturn.(24) The Phoenicians regarded El-Saturn as their chief deity; Eusebius informs us that El, a name used also in the Bible as a name for God, was the name of Saturn.(25) In Persia Saturn was known as Kevan or Kaivan.(26)
