About the Author

Vince Nicolas was born, raised, and educated in New York City. Being son of immigrants, he was privileged to spend many summers in Europe. As a young adult Vince was fascinated by the ancient history of Europe. When he was in High School, he studied Latin for four years. In learning the language, most of the school work centered on translating Latin writings from and about ancient Rome and the Romans. He made several pilgrimages to Italy and Rome, and loved being submersed in ancient and medieval Roman culture, art, mythology, and architecture. Of course, Rome was also intertwined with the history of early Christianity.

In the course his studies, he discovered how Christianity struggled to survive and grow in the Roman Empire. Then as it was finally gaining acceptance, the smaller Christian groups were being snuffed out as the larger western Christian Church gained dominance. Many shows are aired on this period of time, especially about the “lost” or “banned” Gospels, on major networks including The History Channel and The National Geographic Channel. Innumerable books have been written on this and related subjects by very best and prominent professors from major U.S. universities. In fact a whole section of the library (220-232) and bookstores is dedicated to “General Christianity.” Vince cannot watch and read enough on the subjects of the “lost Gospels,” “Christian Gnosticism,” and “Alternative Christianities.”

Vince had done teaching, speaking, and writing in his career, so his next logical step was to write a book, compile all this great information, and get it out to as many people as possible. There is so much information, Volumes II and III are already being written.
