Fig 3 39 On 1 October 1486 Venus was actually in Leo
Mercury was actually visible until 20:15 local time, after which it went under the local horizon.
Venus ascended at 3:00 local time that night, and was perfecdy visible up until sunrise.
All of this data was received from the calculations performed with the aid of the Turbo-Sky software, which is convenient for approximate computing.
We re-emphasize that the solution of 1 October 1486 is ideal from all points of view. The arrangement of the planets for 1 October 1486 a.d. is reflected in the Apocalypse with surprising accuracy, as a matter of fact.
It is evident, as one can see on fig. 3.35, that the mediaeval observer was quite correct about Perseus riding Mars: "Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other. To him was given a large sword" (AP 6:4). At this time Mars was actually located direcdy underneath the feet of Perseus. This can clearly be seen on fig. 3.36, which shows a fragment of a mediaeval map from Ptolemy's Almagest with the position of Mars for the 1 October 1486 pointed out. Mars was in Gemini, right under the feet of Perseus. And compared to the line of the local horizon in the environs of Bosporus, for 23:00 local time, Mars was exactly under Perseus. Finally, the brighdy luminous strip of the Milky Way passes precisely through the constellations of Perseus and Gemini in the nocturnal sky. That is where Mars had been located on that date, and the Milky Way seemingly bound together the constellations of Gemini and Perseus, as well as the planet Mars (fig. 3.36). The mediaeval observer pointed out this remarkable event.
But why did the observer indicate Mars in combination with the constellation of Perseus rather than Gemini? Indeed, Perseus is not a zodiacal constellation, whereas Gemini is. The reason the observer did this apparendy owes to the fact that the author of the Apocalypse described the forthcoming Doomsday, that is, a very dramatic event. Therefore, he selected the symbols maximally pertinent to the spirit of the great catastrophe.
The first primary planet (Jupiter) proved to be in Sagittarius, that is, in the "martial constellation," depicted with bow and arrows.
The second primary planet (Saturn) proved to be in Scorpio, that is, in a terrifying, mortally dangerous constellation.
The third primary planet (Mars) proved to be in Gemini, that is, in the "peacefiil constellation." But direcdy above it at this moment was Perseus, the martial constellation with the sword, held in his hands and used for beheading the Gorgon Medusa with her serpent hair and stare that turned all living things to stone (fig. 3.36). Furthermore, Mars himself, as it is commonly known, was considered the God of War. It is therefore quite clear that the author of the Apocalypse selected Perseus with the Sword due to its perfect correspondence with the eschatological scenario.
One begins to understand why Mars is referred to in the Greek text of the Apocalypse as interpreted by N. A. Morozov as having "gone beyond, to the other side", qv above and in . Fig. 3.32 demonstrates clearly that on the 1 October 1486 Mars had really been in visible opposition to the other planets which were all grouped in Scorpio. A terrestrial observer would see Jupiter, Saturn, the moon, Mercury and the sun near one side of the celestial dome, and Mars drawn to its other side, qv on fig. 3.32.
Why did Morozov reject the solutions of 1249 and 1486 a.d.? Morozov's answer is simple and sincere. He frankly explained: "Hardly anyone would dare to say in this respect that the Apocalypse could have been written on 14September 1249" (, Volume l,page 53]. He did not even consider 1486 as a possible solution.
However, nowadays, more than seventy years after N. A. Morozov, and relying on new results obtained from our books on the new chronology, among other things, one can confidendy claim the Apocalypse to have been written precisely in 1486, that is, during epoch of the Ottoman=Ataman conquest. See Chron6 for more details.
Why is 1486 the most congruous dating for the writing of the Apocalypse in our reconstruction? As it is well known, the Apocalypse is primarily concerned with all matters related to Doomsday. "The Apocalypse and its visions (apart from the first three chapters)... is an image of the final hour of the World... or the Eschaton, and it must serve as a manual for the Revelations" (, Book 3, Volume 11, page 511). But that year, when the entire mediaeval Christian world anticipated Doomsday in terror, is well known to history. This is 1492 a.d., which was year 7000 from Adam of the Byzantine era. According to the tradition of the epoch, Doomsday was supposed to fall on this year precisely.
The Apocalypse is thus concerned with the advent of the Judgement Day, expected in 1492 a.d. The first lines of the Apocalypse state explicidy: "Because the time is near" (AP 1:3). That should mean the proximity of the year 1492 a.d., or the year 7000 since Adam. Note that it was in 1492, that Columbus set out to sea, in the age of Doomsday expectations.
Therefore, our independent astronomical dating of the Apocalypse to 1486 a.d. - that is, 6994 years from Adam - corresponds ideally with the content of the book. The Apocalypse was written only six years before the expected End of the World in the fifteenth century.
Dating the Apocalypse to the end of the fifteenth century also corresponds ideally with our formal mathematical result as discussed in Chroni, Chapter 5:9.3. The result lies in the fact that chronologically the Apocalypse must not be considered the last book of the Bible canon, but, rather, one of the first books of the Old Testament. That is, the Apocalypse chronologically occurs simultaneously with the Pentateuch of Moses and not with the Gospels. Let us recall that the contemporary Bible begins precisely with the Pentateuch of Moses.
In other words, the Apocalypse is chronologically incorrecdy placed in the Bible next to the Gospels. It was written much later than the Gospels. The Gospels, according to our reconstruction, describe the events of XI century. See more details below.
