Le Frisson des vampires

...you must have learned something
important about your origins?

- We learned that our family...
- Which we traced way back.

...significantly helped
some religions survive...

...at the end of the Middle Ages.
We're talking about
the worship of the goddess Isis.

You're egyptologists?
No, I'm mean the religion
which continued in Europe...

...in spite of the persecution it
suffered from the Catholic church.

That is why things were
borrowed from foreign religions...

...as the goddess Isis was.
- Who we already mentioned.

In particular, Christians
hunted down their enemies.

They adopted the ancient
religion of the horned god...

...who has been worshipped
since prehistory.

Violently persecuted,
this religion was destroyed.

Although they claimed
to worship the goddess Isis...

...in fact, they had turned
a male god of local origin...

...into a female god
of foreign origin.

So those who opposed Christianity...
...adopted two arguments
against their persecutors.

They'd say, "We can't be blamed
for worshipping the horned god...

...because she is a woman."
Sometimes they'd say, "She is a
woman, so we do not revere an idol."

This woman was the Virgin Mary.
As I said, it was all about derision
because it was verging on blasphemy.
