Who euhemerized Jesus were the Romans

Représentons-nous un proconsul hautain et pressé interrogeant un chrétien paulinien. Comment pourrait-il comprendre l'étonnant mystère d'un Dieu crucifié par des Archontes invisibles ? Par bon sens il conclura que l'objet du culte des séditieux a été un séditieux, légitimement châtié par l'autorité établie.


(Paul-Louis Couchoud, Historie de Jésus, Presses Universitaires de France, 1944, p. 159)

Translation:
Imagine a haughty and hurried proconsul questioning a Pauline Christian. How could he understand the astonishing mystery of a God crucified by invisible Archons? By common sense he will conclude that the object of the cult of the seditious has been a seditious, legitimately punished by the established authority.

Nihil enim in speciem fallacius est quam prava religio. -Liv. xxxix. 16.
