This program includes a Foreword written and read by Graham Hancock, the New York Times bestselling author of America Before: The Key to Earth's Lost Civilization.

A groundbreaking dive into the role psychedelics have played in the origins of Western civilization, and a real-life quest for the Holy Grail.

The most influential religious historian of the 20th century, Huston Smith, once referred to it as the 'best-kept secret' in history. Did the Ancient Greeks use drugs to find God? And did the earliest Christians inherit the same, secret tradition? A profound knowledge of visionary plants, herbs and fungi passed from one generation to the next, ever since the Stone Age?

With an unquenchable thirst for evidence, Muraresku takes the listener on his twelve-year global hunt for proof. He tours the ruins of Greece with its government archaeologists. He gains access to the hidden collections of the Louvre Museum to show the continuity from pagan to Christian wine. He unravels the Ancient Greek of the New Testament with a Catholic priest. He spelunks into the catacombs under the streets of Rome to decipher the lost symbols of Christianity’s oldest monuments. He breaches the secret archives of the Vatican to unearth manuscripts never before translated into English. And with leads from the archaeological chemists at the University of Pennsylvania and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he unveils the first scientific data for the ritual use of psychedelic drugs in classical antiquity.

The Immortality Key reconstructs the suppressed history of women consecrating a forbidden, drugged Eucharist that was later banned by the Church Fathers. Women who were then targeted as witches during the Inquisition, when Europe’s sacred pharmacology largely disappeared. Have the scientists of today resurrected this lost technology? Is Christianity capable of returning to its roots?

I liked how it was a book of discovery. it took us along as the author discovers he has been told to believe a made up story and it helps to know that it was made up to keep the truth from going underground. Hopefully we will learn what we need to do to die before we die. I have tried to look up the book of recopies but groggel has become a gatekeeper and does not allow us to find information. If you know let us know, we need to spread information that is being kept from us.

Very interesting book that made me understand so much about the early Christian church and where so many things came from. Already rereading. Thank you for such a great story that ties everything together.

This is book is like the unifying theory of everything!!! A metaphysical and cultural masterpiece that brings the world of Joseph Campbell together with Terrance McKenna. The ritual is dead and along with it the religion if the ritual isn’t lived, experienced and practiced. Thank you for your hard work Brian
