003: 6 Myths About Easter
Apr 17, 2019
K. Albert Little

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic Podcast we tackle six of the myths that pop up every year about Easter.

Is the origin of Easter pagan? Does the name come from a Mesopotamian  or Anglo-Saxon goddess of fertility? Are Easter eggs a symbol of spring and fertility? And, more seriously, what about the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus? Can the history of this narrative be trusted?
