Activity for current Hellenion members only
Join us for a forum-based chat on Monday, Nov 5. We’ll start at 10am EST and will run until about 10:45.
We’ll be using the chat box feature.
As a starting point for the conversation, we’ll begin with this quote from chapter ten of Campbell’s Old Stones, New Temples:
“…signs come from the gods, and through them the gods give direction and guidance to man, even if in cryptic form. Precisely because there are no revealed scriptures, the signs become the pre-eminent form of contact with the higher world and a mainstay of piety.” (p 127)
Time permitting, we’ll move on to discuss the rest of chapter ten, Mantike–Divination, Oracles, and the Will of the Gods.
