When/what was the ‘Axial Age’??

Does the Historical Jesus Matter? (yes, he does)

…Jesus is certainly among the great axial age figures…

This statement is a fallacy: the whole point is that the ‘Axial Age’ or ‘interval’ was a short period in which the seeds of many future elements were sown, among them the creation, later, of Christianity (and Judaism). But it is misleading to say that these later religions were created in the Axial Age. The question is important because we can see that these religions are human creations, and not the mysterious process we see in the ‘eonic sequence’, of which the Axial interval is a part.
