Andrew Hall, Parish House

In the Temperance Window of Saint Thomas, the names of four Greeks can be found among various symbols for wisdom: Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, and Zeno.

Christians Readings Greeks, a series of seminars on first Mondays, begins tonight with the following selections from Homer's Iliad: Books 1, 6, 9, 16, 18 (to line 371 only), 22, and 24. Although jumpy, these selections give the basic story of Achilles and his anger. Participants may read any translation. The discussion is in Andrew Hall from 6:15 to 7:45pm.

This series follows the standard format of Good Books & Good Talk, in which particpants are expected to read the selections in advance so that they are prepared to discuss their impressions with the group.
