Allegro hoped it would illuminate the origins of thought, language and religion. People should then be able to better understand where they came from, shed the trappings of religion, and take true responsibility for what they did to each other and their world. None of this got past the initial shock-waves.

It was written by John Marco Allegro — The book relates the development of language to the development of myths, religions, and cultic practices in world cultures. Allegro argues, through etymology, that the roots of Christianity , and many other religions, lay in fertility cults , and that cult practices, such as ingesting visionary plants to perceive the mind of God, persisted into the early Christian era , and to some unspecified extent into the 13th century with reoccurrences in the 18th century and midth century, as he interprets the fresco of the Plaincourault Chapel to be an accurate depiction of the ritual ingestion of Amanita muscaria as the Eucharist. Allegro argued that Jesus never existed as a historical figure and was a mythological creation of early Christians under the influence of psychoactive mushroom extracts such as psilocybin. His claims have often been subject to ridicule and scorn due to Allegro's unconventional theory.
