Défense du paganisme : Contre les Galiléens by Julian the Apostate

By Julian the Apostate

C’est à Antioche, quelques mois avant sa mort tragique, que l’Empereur Julien (331-363) rédige un pamphlet Contre les Galiléens, qui dénonce avec vigueur l. a. prétention à l’universalité de los angeles petite secte chrétienne. Mais au-delà de los angeles critique de cette nouvelle faith, c’est à une véritable apologie du paganisme qu’il se livre. 

Il n’était alors pas trop tard pour empêcher le triomphe annoncé du christianisme, mais le règne de Julien fut beaucoup trop bref. S’il l’avait emporté, l. a. face du monde en eût été changée et il ne serait pas resté dans l’Histoire comme l’Apostat... 

Rétrospectivement, ce texte apparaît donc comme le chant du cygne de l. a. faith grecque.
