Wildest datings

Fomenko justifies this approach by the fact that, in many cases, the original documents are simply not available: Fomenko claims that all the history of the ancient world is known to us from manuscripts that date from the 15th century to the 18th century, but describe events that allegedly happened thousands of years before, the originals regrettably and conveniently lost.

Fomenko claims the Hagia Sophia is actually the biblical Temple of Solomon.

He identifies Solomon as sultan Suleiman the Magnificent (1494–1566).

The New Chronology is rejected by mainstream historians and is inconsistent with absolute and relative dating techniques used in the wider scholarly community.

To the south of Yoros Castle is Joshua's Hill which Fomenko alleges is the hill Calvary depicted in the Bible.

AD 1100, more than a full millennium after the events they describe, and they did not come to scholars' attention until the 15th century.

According to Fomenko, the 15th century is probably when these documents were first written.

In 1980, together with a few colleagues from the mathematics department of Moscow State University, he published several articles on "new mathematical methods in history" in peer-reviewed journals.
