going back over the years like Alexander the Great Julius ceaser I believe tutumkarmer some American and uk government greatness were thought of as touched by God the greats of the greats.How did it change to people being treated like lepracy or scared.
Another thing people with the odd forms or would be perceived as nothing the matter but in fact may have temporal lobe and having the odd aura and they made awful judgements carried out to little to late.
How many have been put to death on capital punishment there was a case in uk back in 50s a young boy put to death it been discovered to little to late it was his epilepsy.Kings and Queens hiddened because of it even up to recently.
I have my odd ideas on some of it due to human condition and maybe wrong

And some think that St. Paul had E, also.

St Paul and temporal lobe epilepsy.
D Landsborough


Evidence is offered to suggest a neurological origin for Paul's ecstatic visions. Paul's physical state at the time of his conversion is discussed and related to these ecstatic experiences. It is postulated that both were manifestations of temporal lobe epilepsy.
