From Artemis of Ephesus to Mother Mary

Written by  Paul

It is argued, and believed, by many that early Christianity struggled to replace the love and adoration that abounded in the day for the great Artemis. Only in 431, at the Council of Ephesus (held at Church of Mary in Ephesus) did the church manage the transition. It was then that, in seeming desperation, they proclaimed Mary the mother of God, Theotokos. Hence one eternal virgin (Artemis) was reincarnated as a modern virgin, Mother Mary....fait accompli... fasten your seatbelt....
