 Egyptian hieroglyph
Hieroglyphs continued to be used under Persian rule (intermittent in the 6th and 5th centuries BC), after Alexander's conquest of Egypt, and during the ensuing Macedonian and Roman periods.
By the fourth century, few Egyptians remained capable of reading hieroglyphs, and the "myth" of hieroglyphs was ascendant.
Various modern scholars attempted to decipher the glyphs over the centuries, notably Johannes Goropius Becanus in the 16th century and Athanasius Kircher in the 17th century, but such attempts either met with failure or were fictitious decipherments based on nothing but imaginative free-association.

 The Star Sothis and Egyptian Chronology
The dates in the twenty-third century BC - attributed to Hammurabi by the earlier historians - have had to be periodically adjusted as a result of new archaeological finds; first to c.2100 BC, and more lately to c.1700 BC, with differences of opinion still amounting to nearly a century.

Protestants generally regarded the Roman Church as the root of all evil although in England by the Seventeenth century, the Protestant Church itself was as full of hypocrisy as the Roman Church was of superstition; both were filled with corruption and each went to war against the other.
