born of a virgin

10 ancient people who were also born of a virgin

Christians confess (believe) that Jesus was born of a virgin.  Some people doubt the accuracy of that – but according to some ancient facts, it was not that uncommon back then, there were some other people who are acclaimed to be born of a virgin too.

In order not to step on toes, I may not be able to go into specific details of this people, but I will provide their names, and pictures. You can read details about them here.

Here are just 10 people born of a virgin in the ancient world: 

Buddha – In Buddhist tradition, Maya died soon after the birth of Buddha. The idea that Maya was a virgin only developed after the advent of Christianity.


Krishna born without a sexual union, by “mental transmission” from the mind of Vasudeva into the womb of Devaki, his mother.





Romulus – born of a vestal virgin, which was a priestess of the hearth god Vesta sworn to celibacy. His mother claims that the divine impregnated her, yet this is not believed by the King. Romulus and his twin brother, Remus, are tossed in the river and left for dead. (A “slaughter of the innocents” tale which parallels that of Matthew 2:13-16). Romulus is hailed as the son of god. He is “snatched away to heaven” by a whirlwind (It is assumed that the gods took him), and he makes post mortem appearances.


Dionysus – born of a virgin on December 25 and, as the Holy Child, was placed in a manger.
