... An Extract Out Of Josephus's Discourse To The Greeks Concerning Hades 1. NOW as to Hades, wherein the souls of the of the good things they see, and rejoice in the righteous and unrighteous are detained, it is necessary to speak of it. Hades is a place in the world not regularly finished; a subterraneous region, wherein the light of this world does not shine; from which circumstance, that in this region the light does not shine, it cannot be but there must be in it perpetual darkness. This region is allotted as a place of custody for souls, ill which angels are appointed as guardians to them, who distribute to them temporary punishments ...

... Amenhotep III was married toor, more correctly, by-a strong-willed woman who climbed to the throne from a family in the ranks of civil servants and who took more royal prerogatives into her hands than any royal wife on the throne of Egypt before or after her. Her hunter-husband, however, was turning his interest to what later was called "Greek love," an inference drawn from the fact that he permitted his artist to portray him dressed as a woman. More than once the throne of an empire was occupied by an invert. Hadrian, the Roman emperor, made known to all his attachment to Antinous, the Bithynian youth. The emperor journeyed up the Nile to meditate ...

154. Some Notes on Catastrophism in the Classics [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 6 No 3 (Feb 1986) Home | Issue Contents Some Notes on Catastrophism in the Classics Hugh Crosthwaite A fertile field awaits the classical scholar who is interested in the early Greek pre-Socratic philosophers and the tragic poets. Here are a few stray thoughts to arouse interest (I hope). The article in KRONOS VI:4 mentioning the river Jordan's reversal brings to mind lines from a chorus in the Medea of Euripides, lines 410-413: "The waters of sacred rivers flow uphill, and justice and all things are reversed. Man's counsels are deceitful, and belief in the gods is no longer firm." Heraclitus gives us: "It ...

... "like ourselves", neither would we fear that the same fate might befall us. Aristotle seems to see tragedies as addressed to an upper-crust audience. For if the man "like ourselves" is "highly renowned and prosperous" and is one of those "illustrious men of such families" as provide the noble and royal characters of Greek mythology, is it not implicit that Aristotle and the others in the audience are of like status? It also seems to be implied that Aristotle would like for tragedy to be an all-male affair. He wants the tragic character to be good, but neither so exceedingly good nor so minimally good as no longer to be "like ourselves ...

... in from the east, when, perhaps, even waters from the Indian Ocean, coming up through the Red Sea, entered the Levantine basin from the south, many cultures met their end, or suffered at least a great caesura in their development and continuity. The eastern Mediterranean area was probably the home of the highest cultures. In Greek myths we still find traces of the time when the turbulent waves of the New Sea submerged the plains and valleys of what we may call Aegea. The name of the Aegean Sea is itself descriptive: it is derived from aisso, to move rapidly and jerkily, to surge up, to flow violently. At present the Aegean does ...

... Chapter XXXVIII The Influence of Egypt Upon Temple-orientation in Greece IN the final pages of this book I have to show that recent investigations have put beyond all doubt the fact that the astronomical observations and temple-worship of the Egyptians formed the basis first of Greek and later of Latin temple-building. I have indicated in a former chapter that in our own days, and in our own land, the idea of orientation which I have endeavoured to work out for Egypt still holds its own. It was more than probable, therefore, that we should find the intermediate stages in those countries whither by universal consent Egyptian ideas percolated. Among these, Greece holds the first place, as it was ...

... of this investigation, testify on her own behalf. I say she was a shiner, but the name means more than that. It is more properly the vast illumination, or universal shiner. O'Neil says the name means "All shine", and I can see nothing but the wide shining canopy or sunregent, the same as the Greek Posiphae, of which more later on. Amaterazu, then, which the mythologists say was an ancient name for the sun, was originally the vapor heaven by which the true sun was concealed as her own child and the grandchild of Izanagi and Izanami, and this Amaterazu, from utter necessity, had to give birth and power to ...

Weche (304-415 Gilmour Ottawa, Ontario K2P 2M8 Canada) David Roth Planet of the Greeks has an excellent introduction, setting forth in clear language the aims and pitfalls of historiography and a revised chronology. Weche pays tribute to past and present researchers and revisers, especially Velikovsky and Diop, also Peter James and David Rohl, Bernal, Ginenthal, Heinsohn, Peiser, Cochran, Whelton etc. He questions the basis for believing entirely any source, be it Biblical, Greek, Egyptian, written on papyrus or inscribed in stone ...

160. Sandal-straps and Semiology [Books] [de Grazia books]
... From: The Burning of Troy, by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER SIXTEEN Sandal-straps and Semiology The neophyte comes upon the word "catastrophe" and feels proud to discover within it the Greek words kata (down) and aster (star), so "failing stars" is heralded as the origin of the word. Not so, say our betters: the Greek words within it are kata and strophe (turning) and refer to that part of an ancient drama in which occurs the denouement; the plot, having reached its culmination, descends, often precipitously. In a plea for the innocents, I would suggest that what we know of Greek etymology ...
