Hi everyone,

I think that Millius took two "blasphemies" of Jewish culture in the timeline of Conan.
The words of Thulsa Doom in the mountain of power, Who among you...? Who ? ...? Seems inspired by a Jewish prayer wich said, Who is like You among the powerfull Gods ? who ? is like you glorious in holiness?

And when Conan just before the final battle invoke the help of Crom saying, You have always been ..." it seems to me inspired by another Jewish prayer that says, Lord you have always been with our fathers and the fathers of our fathers...".

I'd say those words could be attributed to a million different sentences.
I guess like holy books, the film is very open to interpretation.

The "You have always been..." lines, Milius himself said it exists in many religions in many forms.

Besides that, Milius is Jewish. Maybe not the most religious Jewish ever, but his parents surely were. So no doubt there must be some specific jewish forms in the movie.
