  • 12-24-2016 There are several books titled "Babylon Mystery Religion" setting forth the history of the church founded by Astarte/Oestre/Ishtar/Easter, which eventually took over the official religion of Rome and became the Catholic Church. Expansion of the church was largely by absorbing smaller pagan churches, usually with little or no change to them.
