6. Description Abstract James Crossley provides a deliberately anachronistic reading of the origins of Christianity through a comparison with Marxist revolutions, Marxist readings of revolutions, Marxist revolutionaries, and Marxism after the revolution. While the comparison is absurdist, it can still give us an insight into the ways in which political movements survive, adapt, and transform—including the movement that would become Christianity. The essay gives some consideration to the recent political events and the revival (and now fall?) of left-wing movements.
