30:

The traditional year of the foundation of the early Christian gnostic religion under Jesus Christ. Modern academics still dispute that this man ever existed, offering evidence that modern Christianity and the literary figure of Christ was little more than a Roman propaganda tool to defuse the threat posed by Messianic Jews in the first century CE against Roman rule.

Jerusalem, Palestine, Roman Empire – The most agreed-upon year of the execution of Christ by Roman authorities at the request of their Jewish protectorate. Alternate year given is 36, but this is ruled out for various reasons relating to documented Jewish customs and events at the time and the oral tradition of the crucifixion. Shortly before his death, Christ is supposed to have raised another person, Lazarus, from death. Coupled with his own claimed return from death, this is considered to have fueled speculation about Vampyres rising from their graves.

Rome, Roman Empire – Gaius Petronius Arbiter (original name Titus Petronius Niger) 27-66CE, a Roman courtier at the time of Nero’s reign (54-68) writes the “Satyricon”, a satirical novel which follows the misadventures of the narrator, Encolpius, and his lover, a handsome sixteen-year-old boy named Giton. and includes the tale of a vampire and a werewolf. This fragment of the story which survives, is called “The Dinner of Trimalchio”. In 65CE, Nero accused Arbiter’s old mentor, Seneca, of being involved in a conspiracy to kill him. Nero ordered Seneca to commit suicide, and tradition holds that the Satyricon was his literary vengeance against Nero.

Rome, Roman Empire – Gaius Plinius Secundus aka “Pliny the Elder”, a famed Roman author and natural philosopher, and author of “Naturalis Historia” (Natural History), a collection of 37 books – promotes premature burial as the cause for people returning from the dead, meaning that such cases reflect that the person returning from the dead were in fact buried mistakenly while still alive.

Palestine, Roman Empire – Lilith referred to in the Talmud (the collection of Jewish law and   tradition consisting of the Mishnah and the Gemara) where she is held to be the first wife of Adam.

380:

Rome, Roman Empire – The foundation of the Roman Catholic (meaning “universal”) Church by   Roman emperor Constantine “the Great” who also becomes the first pope. The new religion is a blending of the fledgling gnostic Christian faith and older pagan religions such as cults of Tammuz, Diane, Ra, Mithras etc. “Christian” rituals, symbols, holy days and scripture is based on a blending of content from all these pagan religions. Central to Catholicism, is a blood offering, a symbolic cannibalism, to establish and maintain the reciprocal relationship between God and Humanity. Many modern Christians balk at a description of the Eucharist as symbolic cannibalism, but Christ is plainly quoted as saying,”Take. Eat. This is my body. This is my blood.” John quotes Christ as saying, “Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.” The Christian religion does not require direct blood sacrifices and offerings to feed their god in the same way that the Maya and others so graphically practiced. It is hard to get around the symbolism of the voluntary sacrifice of early Christians to lions and acts of torture in the Roman coliseum, coupled with the Sacrement.

381:
Constantinople, Roman Empire – The Council of Constantinople declares all general church councils to be authoritative, conveniently requiring all Christians to agree with whatever such a council decides. This is the traditional start of persecution of the surviving early gnostic churches in the known world (although this had already been under way since the time of Vespasian). Gnostic texts are suppressed, collected and burned, replaced with early versions of the Latin Vulgate.

730’s:
The “Baital Pachisi”, a collection of twenty-five fables surrounding “Vikram the Vampire”, is composed in Sanskrit.
