Week 2: True History

Sorry for the delay. So for week 2 we read the True History, a satire by Lucian of Samosata. We have been told many truthful lies and have been on the moon and, like Jonah, in the belly of a whale. So, what did everyone think of it? What was good, what was disappointing, did you learn anything, etc? This is the discussion thread.

For the next week (15-22th June) we'll read the The Cock. A very strange yet amusing little book.

Participants thus far (feel free to join):

- TheMathematician
- Severian
- dcommini
- Orthodox11
- Romaios
- Ansgar
- Cyrillic

"Who wants to be consistent? The dullard and the doctrinaire, the tedious people who carry out their principles to the bitter end of action, to the reductio ad absurdum of practice. Not I."

True history is where God guides world events.

I can't really explain something marvelous like that ~ where God and history meet? ..
