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

True history is where God guides world events.

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