I bought a book A History of Celibacy by Elizabeth Abbott...



...after I read from Julius Caesar https://vnnforum.com/showpost.php?p=...&postcount=860 about the Germans that they:

"Those who have remained chaste for the longest time, receive the greatest commendation among their people; they think that by this the growth is promoted, by this the physical powers are increased and the sinews are strengthened. And to have had knowledge of a woman before the twentieth year they reckon among the most disgraceful acts"

Book VI, XXI - http://www.forumromanum.org/literatu...lic_e6.html#21

I just finished it day before yesterday. I got several of this ancient civilizations series over a year ago at the Goodwill: decent history with very interesting photos of artifacts. Now into the one dealing with the very first civilizations (Sumer, etc.)

Reading Fox's Book of Martyrs. Nothing but descriptions of how pagans killed christians, and then how catholics killed protestants. Our ancestors acted like ISIS.

I am in the middle of listening to Der Ring des Nibelung, so I am reading a few books in relation to this masterpiece.



I am reading a section of this, before I begin each part of the musical drama.



I am reading this libretto translation while listening.

It is a landmark experience in my life.

I am also rereading The Oddysey by Homer and reading Helter Skelter by Vincent Bugliosi for the first time.
