Moses is known as one of the most insightful and spiritual personalities
of early recorded history. After several decades of painstaking research
into the sources of ancient history, the book introduces a number of
surprising discoveries about Moses, brought to light through years of
Moses appears more
frequently in our modern usage and conceptual framework than most other
Biblical figures. But what was his real identity? Many often suppressed
sources have been studied and compared to the most recent achievements
of research. This includes the revelation of several items of previously
unnoticed evidence about Moses' historic and dramatic fate, in and
outside of Ancient Egypt.
The unusual data about
Moses' status and activities include several rediscovered historical
pieces of information previously rejected by researchers due to the more
limited perspective of their respective eras. Some of these notions,
such as that Moses was a fictional character, gained a foothold in
scientific approaches - even to this very day. But there is simply too
much evidence and tradition to enable his historical presence to be
A bibliography of rare
great proportions is added to the book, additionally supplemented and
updated by sources from the other volumes. It probably constitutes the
most comprehensive collection of scientific works, articles and
treatises about Moses in the world. The book also includes a
comprehensive bibliography of Egyptian astronomy and chronology.
In the book, a series of
previously enigmatic circumstances in the old scriptures about Moses are
presented with a direct connection to ancient history. The new, specific
and interesting information, which hereby receives a wider audience, is
in several instances actually capable of renewing and expanding
knowledge of Moses and his continued influence down through the ages.

"... This is the 5th and
last volume of the great book-series on Moses. ... It began with the detection
of Moses being born originally to become a pharaoh of Egypt - it means, too,
that he was an initiated - but he was repressed because of a plot from the
priests and of power struggle in the family. However, it did not prevent him
being what he was incarnated to be - the very 'renewer' of the culture. In this
vol. 5, it is examined more closely how he actually had a decisive renewing
influence on our cultural history. - Ove von Spaeth has been digging out many

The established knowledge
suffers - of natural reasons - from huge gaps in research. In the light of much
new material, some parts of the established knowledge on the past will often be
incorrect. There are many angles, and all historians know that there is no authoritarian "belief"
for a given historical sequence - not one unambiguous
truth. - In "Prophet and Unknown Genius", however, its writer Ove von
Spaeth has realized that the task of history writing is to explain and to
understand, and not to pronounce politically correct - and presently fashionable
- sentences on history. ...

to prove that it is possible - successfully - to put forward extraordinary
demand for quality in the promoting of insight in a complex, ancient world and
its history of culture. Also, the book is an intellectual achievement, which -
across dividing borders of traditional schools - has been carried through as not
only an especially valuable, but in fact an upheaval, expanded research. And in
the same time it is a highly inspiring reading. ... "
