Pliny The Younger As Saint Ignatius
(Roman Piso, 06-13-2017)
As I have been explaining, and illustrating, ancient authors used pen names or aliases – both for themselves and those they were writing about. Not just once in a while, but as a standard practice. And the main reason for this was because only royalty or those of royal blood were doing the writing. No one other than those of royal blood were allowed to write for publication under penalty of death. It is by this means, that the royal Oligarchy kept and maintained their position over the populace.
In order for royalty to continue without being overthrown by the masses, they had to create facades. [I] One of the main facades that they had to create and maintain was that of non-royals having a chance at ruling. That is a facade that many people today still believe.
But they, royals, had to make that illusion appear to be true during their time, or else. They also had to make it appear as if many different people from different walks of life were writing, and were able to get their books published; when in reality, there was no way that any non-royal could write and distribute their material without being killed for attempting to do so.
A part of the proof that Pliny The Younger wrote as Saint Ignatius is the fact that we have already exposed Pliny The Younger as having other aliases and others of his time also using alternate names. [II] For instance, we have already shown Pliny as ‘Paul’ of the New Testament. [III] Another thing is the time in which he wrote, in conjunction with the fact that he wrote in the form of epistles. His main language was Latin, though he also wrote in Greek. We have learned a great deal about Pliny. [IV]
Both Arrius Calpurnius Piso and Pliny The Younger were the main creators of the gospels and Christianity. They were, as a “Dynamic Duo”. They worked together. They did this in much the same way as Seneca and Lucius Calpurnius Piso did (Seneca and Lucillius). Seneca and Lucius Piso were the first “Dynamic Duo” to have worked together on the new Roman religion (that was instituted by the Roman Emperor Tiberius). [V]
The creation of a new Roman religion to replace the Jewish religion was a solution to the problem that had faced both Rome and the leaders in Judea (i.e., the Herodians). What most historians had thought was simply a few Jewish revolts or uprisings, in reality, was a very long war. A war that was not going to end either soon or easily. The fact of this war, was purposely being kept from the public by the Roman writer and leaders of the time, but through careful and diligent study, this can be uncovered.
This war had begun as a rift between two Jewish sects, the Sadducees and the Pharisees. Rome was brought into it by the losing side, the Sadducean leadership (i.e., the Hasmoneans, and then the Herodians). The Flavians and Arrius Calpurnius Piso through his mother, were descendants of King Herod, thus, they were all on the same side (against the Pharisees). [VI]
The idea for a new religion came from the fact that the Pharisees were writing as a means of getting the common people to support them. The Pharisees were writing what would become the Talmud and their writings were based upon ethical reasoning. They were not promoting blind allegiance to religion, but they were actually making people think, particularly about their own situation in life and their lack of basic human rights.
This, in fact, was the basis for the long war. The Pharisees, along with the Scribes (the leaders of the Scribes were formerly leaders of the Essenes, who disbanded in 6 CE), were fighting for the people against the royal aristocracy; for basic human rights, against slavery, for fair government and laws. Since the Pharisees and Scribes ultimately lost that war, they continued to fight injustice in other ways. Particularly, by writing the Talmud. And the royals and Church, continued to fight and kill Jews. [VII]
Because the Pharisees were having phenomenal success doing this, the opposition realized that they had to do something in response. And that was to create and promote an entirely new religion that would mentally trap believers and give the royals who enjoyed a life of luxury off of the backs of slaves, a new “crop” of slaves and an unending supply of ignorant workers to be used and abused, and who would not complain (so much) about their lot in life. Rome, at the time, needed a means of pacifying slaves. The answer to that was Christianity. [VIII]
Again, the new or later “Dynamic Duo” was Arrius Piso and Pliny The Younger. Thus, when we find instances of the one doing something or being mentioned in some way indicating the part that they played, we should also find something about the other in either in the same way or a similar way. But, I will now have to say something that I have had to say many times before… this is very complex. It requires a great deal from anyone who is to study it as it needs to be studied. And, quite frankly, those within Academia today are not being taught to the level that would enable them to do this correctly. This is why I had to establish the New Classical Scholarship. [IX]
Abelard Reuchlin is the very first to name the true authors of the New Testament texts and to do so in a work that was available to the public for the very first time. The first copies of his ‘The True Authorship of the New Testament’ appeared in 1979. There was a second printing in 1986. In it he wrote (on page 5, ‘THE CHURCH FATHERS’), “Pliny (The Younger) wrote a number of epistles as St. Ignatius”.
On page 15, Reuchlin said, “From the letters of Pliny, one can unravel the members of the Piso family under their various pseudonyms and can notice the comings and goings of the family across Bithynia and the adjacent provinces. From the letters of “St. Ignatius,” which are also by Pliny, one can see him writing to the various family members and friends as they start the first churches.”
He goes on to say, “Pliny created the first churches in Bithynia and Pontus commencing about (the year) 100 – once Acts Of The Apostles was completed. But that was not his first tour of duty there nor did his tour cover a mere few years ending about 112 (CE), as is presumed from his public writings (as Pliny The Younger).”
Though I now know the process used in making his discoveries, I remember his answer to me many years ago when I had asked him what was the most convincing evidence that he had for Pliny being St. Ignatius. He said that it was the same as that as it was for most of all of the (main or) central people involved, and that is that one finds the two in the same places at the same time.
Indeed, we do now have several examples of this very same thing occurring elsewhere with other people of the time, so that it becomes apparent to us that this was a method which was used by these authors to record just who they really were and what the alias names were that each used and were known as. A good example of this can be found in our comparison of Tacitus and Neratius Priscus. [X]
Though Pliny The Younger was born circa 62 CE, the characters that he played were placed at different times to fit the story that they were telling. As with the case with the gospel stories, they were backdated to an earlier time than that in which Arrius and Pliny lived in. That way, when people would try to find information about who the possible authors were, they would be looking during the wrong time frame. Thus, allowing the true authors to remain hidden, until what they did could be uncovered. [XI]
This same trick was used in the gospels where things were “foreseen” or otherwise “predicted”, such as the destruction of the Temple. The gospel that “predicts” the destruction of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem in 70 CE, was written after the fact, but the story within the gospel was set during an earlier time, thus, making it appear that this “prediction” (gospel “prophecy”) had come true. [XII]
I said several years ago, that since we now know the kind of things to look for and where to look for them, it should be fairly easy to make a computer program that will go through ancient texts and find exactly what we are looking for, for us. That has yet to happen. It must be done right, of course, in order to work right. For instance, both Abelard Reuchlin and I had found exact phrases and passages between the epistles of the NT ‘Paul’ and the epistles of Pliny The Younger. But his list of these were lost, and the majority of mine were destroyed. We can, and should regain this evidence. [XIII]
Even though we have already proven our case regarding the ancient authors using aliases, we find proof that “St. Ignatius” himself was (a) in on it, and thus, (b) also an alias name being used by someone. It is then that we must deduce just who was writing as St. Ignatius. In St. Ignatius’ epistle to the Ephesians II.1, Trajan appears as Fronto (Ref. ‘The True Authorship of the New Testament’, Abelard Reuchlin, page 27). We know that Pliny was one of the main participants in the fraud, as he is the one (like Arrius Piso as Flavius Josephus), who gives us so many of the alias names used by the various family members.
Once one is able to read and has a good understanding of the Royal Language which was a language within the language being used at the time, they will then be able to see those texts as the royal authors themselves did. This is essential to clearing up any doubts or misunderstandings. [XIV]
Having discovered another of Pliny’s aliases (i.e., Lucius Junius Calpurnius Piso Caesennius Paetus) and knowing the letter interchanges used in the Royal Language, we can now see what the name “Ignatius” stood for when it comes to Pliny The Younger. The ‘I’ was also seen as ‘L’ (and visa versa), thus, we have ‘L’ for his “Lucius” name (inherited from his adoptive father, Lucius Calpurnius Piso). And, the ‘G’ was used for ‘C’ (as with the names Caius and Gaius). Thus, the ‘G’ in ‘Ignatius’ stood for Pliny’s “Calpurnius” name. And, ‘natius’ means “The Younger” (with ‘boy’ inferred), which, Pliny was. He was Arrius Piso’s younger foster brother. [XV] Also note that to the royal Romans of the time (who thought in bawdy terms), the word ‘boy’ meant much the same thing as ‘lad’ would mean later elsewhere. That is, it meant “he is UP for it!” (sex). Which is why there is a hidden meaning to Suetonius saying “Boys will be boys!” [XVI]
Once you know that these individuals often created their alias or alternate names by using initials and/or parts of their other names, you can then identify what their aliases were constructed of. So, his “Ignatius” alias name was created out of his name as the adoptive son of Lucius Calpurnius Piso, which was basically an inherited name of his adoptive father. And, the name that identifies him as one of the main family members involved in the creation of the Christian religion, Pliny “The Younger”.
We can also tell that Pliny The Younger was deliberately hiding information from his readers, while, in fact, giving away the fact that he was doing so. He knew who his relatives were and he, like other writers of his time, could have been straight forward and forthright. But they could not and still get away with what they were doing.
As Saint Ignatius, he wrote an epistle to Saint ‘Polycarp’. He knew exactly who St. Polycarp was, he knew him personally. Both ‘Ignatius’ and ‘Polycarp’ were pseudonyms or pen names. They were both deceiving their readers. Saint Polycarp was aka Proculus Calpurnius Piso. In his writings as Pliny The Younger, Pliny calls various people his “friends” when he knows that they are actually his own royal relatives. In his writings as Pliny The Younger, he writes admiringly of Emperor Trajan and has correspondence with him. He knows full well that Trajan is a royal relative of his, but says absolutely nothing about it. [XVII]
We need more people working to uncover the truth and true nature of our history. This will not be accomplished as long as people are being taught about it incorrectly and with little to no preparation in what needs to be known. It is the context that needs to be understood correctly first and foremost, as our history was recorded by royalty only and no one other than royals were allowed to write for publication. It was an “inside job” where the writers of each generation knew and were related to each other. It was done by an Oligarchy. And that did not change until relatively recent history. This is now the 21st Century. Our research and methods must be brought into modern times. [XVIII]

The Jews of the 1st & 2nd centuries CE/AD were at war with the Romans who were creating Christianity as a part of that war. After 70 CE (Common Era), the only Jews left were the Scribes and Pharisees. They were writing the Talmud. And, in it, they were leaving a record of who was involved in the creation of Christianity. And they left references in the Talmud referring to two main individuals: Arrius Piso (aka the NT ‘Jesus’) and Pliny The Younger (the NT ‘Paul’).
