Teutonic Mythology by Jacob Grimm Volume 1

Teutonic Mythology by Jacob Grimm Volume 2 1882

Lippincott's Magazine Article (1884) - Customs and Traditions of Easter
'Moreover, the Easter egg, or something like it, can be traced to countries in which the Christian religion has no influence over popular customs. In Persia, for instance, eggs are used very much as the people of rural England use Easter eggs, and in the religion of ancient Persia eggs seem to be a symbol of many things.'

The Antiquarian magazine - Easter Egg article
'The practice is not confined to Christians; the Jews used eggs in their feast of the Passover; and we are told that the Persians, when they keep the festival of the solar year (in March) mutually present each other with coloured eggs.'

Pagan Origin of Partialist Doctrines by John Claudius Pitrat 1871

Paganism surviving in Christianity BY Abram Herbert Lewis 1892

The Two Babylons by the Rev. Alexander Hislop

Easter - Pagan or Christians (Article in the Michigan Churchman 1921

Bible myths and their parallels in other religions By Thomas William Doane
'Even the name of 'Easter' is derived deavored to give a Christian significance to from the heathen goddess, Ostrt, of the Saxons, such of the rites as conld not be rooted out...'

THE RESURRECTION AND IMMORTALITY in the Open Court publication, 1907

The Golden Bough: a study in magic and religion by Sir James Fraser

Easter Miscellanies from Good Housekeeping Magazine 1897

The Evolution of Spiritism, from 'Continuity of Life a Cosmic Truth' by William Maynard Lockwood 1902
'Easter is one of the oldest feast days known to the calendar of time, and by an act of the Nicene Council in 325 A. D. this pagan day of phallic worship and incest, was fastened upon future generations by a born pagan who lived and died a pagan, and who during his earth life was titled, 'CONSTANTINE THE GREAT, PONTIFIX MAXIMUS, EMPEROR AND SUPREME DIGNITARY OF THE PAGAN HIERARCHY.''

Some Easter Thoughts, as posted in The Industrial Enterprise 1909

The Secret Doctrine by By Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
The Christians—especially the Greek and Latin Churches—have fully adopted the symbol, and see in it a commemoration of life eternal, of salvation and of resurrection. This is found in, and corroborated by, the time-honoured custom of exchanging 'Easter Eggs.' From the Anguinum, the 'Egg' of the Pagan Druid, whose name alone made Rome tremble with fear, to the red Easter Egg of the Slavonian peasant, a cycle has passed.

Sex and sex worship by O.A. Wall
The egg has in all ages been considered a sacred emblem of spring; of the rejuvenation of nature after the winter sleep. In Pagan times ornamented eggs were presented to friends, to celebrate the re-awakening of life in the spring; and this Pagan festival, but thinly disguised as being emblematic of the resurrection of Christ, persists in our Easter festival and its attendant gifts of Easter eggs.

Easter - Pagan or Christian by Henry Liddell in Public Opinion (periodical) 1899

The Great Law: A Study of Religious Origins and of the Unity Underlying Them by William Williamson 1899
The very name by which our spring festival is called, is traced by Landseer to the virgin-mother of this Babylonian sun-god; for what is Easter but a modem version of the old names of Ishtar, Ashtoreth, and Astarte?

The Evolution of the Idea of God: An Inquiry Into the Origins of Religion by Grant Allen 1908

The Evolution of Man: his Religious Systems and Social Ethics By William Wright Hardwicke 1899

Every festival of the Christian Church, apart from saints' days, was originally a Pagan festival.

Christianity and Mythology by John Mackinnon Robertson - 1900

The Rising Son, in Flowers of Freethought by GW Foote 1893
The very name of Easter is of heathen origin. All its customs are bequeathed to us from far-off Pagan ancestors. Easter eggs, symbolising the life of the universe, have been traced back to the Romans, Greeks, Persians, and Egyptians.

Pagan Christs: Studies in Comparative Hierology by John Mackinnon Robertson, Rationalist Press Association - 1903
That, nevertheless, survived with the equally pagan symbol of the Easter egg, which has no place in the sacred books, but was taken by the Gnostics from the lore of the Orphicists.

A Short History of Christianity by John Mackinnon Robertson - 1902

The Christ (Searchable pdf) A Critical Review and Analysis of the Evidence of His Existence John E. Remsberg 1909
The festival of Easter belongs to this religion. It was observed in honor of the Saxon goddess Eastre, or Ostara, the goddess of Spring. It celebrated, not the resurrection of Christ, but the resurrection of Spring and flowers. It still retains the name of this goddess. Nearly every festival of the church -- and the Catholic and English churches have many -- are of Pagan origin.

The influence of Buddhism on primitive Christianity by Arthur Lillie 1893

The Pleroma, an essay on the Origin of Christianity by Paul Carus 1909
The various reports of the different countries in Asia Minor indicate that the same ceremonies prevailed everywhere, even also in the North, for we must remember that the word Easter is a Teutonic word and that the festival of the goddess Ostara (compare Ostern, the German 'Easter') has been identified with the Christian-Jewish passover on account of the many resemblances which rendered the two synonymous.

A Dictionary of Religion and Ethics (1921) by Shailer Matthews

Credulities Past and Present by William Jones 1880

The mystical woman and the cities of the nations, Or Papal Rome by Thomas Dennis Rock 1890
'Easter,' alias Ishta, Ashta, or Astarte (the woman). Easter, as now celebrated by the Roman Church, with its carnivals and six weeks Lent, was unknown, even at Rome, till so late as about the middle of the sixth century. But a feast, preceded by a forty days fast, seems to have been observed in ancient times by the Heathen world; as in Egypt, also to this day by the Yezidis of Kurdistan, and Mr. Hislop evidently thinks this feast had some reference to the commemorative weepings in honour of Tammuz.

The Young Woman's Journal (Latter Day Saints) 1919
The term Easter was first used when Christianity was introduced among the Saxons and the poet-historian, Bede, traces it to Easter, a Saxon goddess, whose festival was celebrated annually in the Spring. This is another example of the way the early Christian Church was influenced by the paganism with which it came in contact

Tammuz and Ishtar: a monograph upon Babylonian religion and theology by Stephen Langdon 1914

Bel, the Christ of ancient times (1908) by Hugo Radau
'Easter and Ishtar are one and the same word. It has come into the English language from the Germans, who worshipped the goddess Ostara.'

 The Image of the Cross and Lights on the Altar, in the Christian Church, and in heathen temples before the Christian era, especially in the British Isles, together with the history of the triangle, the dove, floral decorations, the easter egg, and other heathen symbols by BH Dixon 1879

The Book of Common Prayer, the American prayer book, and the three revisions By Bernard Homer Dixon
Even the hot cross buns of Good Friday are Pagan, and were made and marked with the cross of Tammuz, and called ' boun,' ages before the Christian era. Then they were offered to Tammuz and eaten by the priests. Now we eat them ourselves. Two were discovered in Herculaneum. The wafer used in the Roman Mass is identical with the thin round cake called Kollyris which they formerly offered to Astarte.

Tracts for the times respecting ritualism By Bourchier Wrey Savile 1877
'Few persons in England seem to know that the eating of 'hot-cross buns' at Easter is another Pagan custom, which has come down to us from our heathen Saxon ancestors, who used to worship Astarte (from which our word Easter is derived), and offer cakes to her as 'Queen of Heaven.'

A Few Mistakes of Rev. Dr. Newman (Catholic World) 1886
But what does this Christian clergyman mean when he inferentially assumes that Christmas-time is but the pagan 'Saturnalia'; that Easter-time is the pagan festival of spring; that 'Candlemas Day' is copied from a feast in honor of the goddess Neith...

Romanism as it is: an exposition of the Roman Catholic system By Samuel Weed Barnum 1871

Origin of Easter (article in the Liberal Review) 1904
Ostera or Eostre, derived from 'Ost,' meaning East, was a Saxon Goddess, who presided over the luminous powers which revived the earth, and resuscitated life out of the shadow of darkness and the mold of the grave.
