flattop BS: Julius Caesar/Jesus - fact or fiction? (374* d) RE: BS: Julius Caesar/Jesus - fact or fiction? 23 May 06


What's this about 'Caesar means "bald head"?' Here I was, falling under the spell of the gospel according to GUEST AR282, hook, line and crucifix, when suddenly I’m jarred awake in my hard wooden pew. Could GUEST AR282 be a false profit?

I’ve never heard of Caesar meaning bald " a salad dressing, sure, slicing womans’ stomachs to save babies, of course, but never baldness.

Checking the web, I found, no mention of bald. Only the stuff below.

[Caesar originally meant "hairy", which suggests that the Iulii Caesares, a specific branch of the gens Iulia bearing this name, were conspicuous for having fine heads of hair (alternatively, given the Roman sense of humour, it could be that the Iulii Caesares were conspicuous for going bald).]

[Julius Caesar was bald, which is ironic because the name Caesar, from the Latin "caesaries," means "abundant hair."]
