Frankenstein Resurrection Cain and Able
I think buried within the framework of the holy roman empires library was a scroll or codex regarding the ancient resurrection spell from which Cain (Frankenstein) was able to use to resurrect his dead brother Able.
This mythology was later transformed into the Osiris and Set story.
Which itself is a retelling/reinterpretation of events in pre-Pharaonic Egypt.
Every time this scroll or knowledge of it surfaces; the culture which gains access might not try it but creates another that cultural schema regarding how that story effects their civilization.
