Most Representative Book

Post  Nikoletta on Mon Jan 12, 2015 3:48 pm

Hello All,

I have a question. Is there a book that is MOST representative of our belief system? I know all too well that there is not just one all telling book, but I wish to be an Eastern Star and they ask that we swear our loyalty on a sacred book and I would like to be able to swear upon a book of my Faith. Obviously they will not let me swear on hundreds of sources and books and scrolls so I wanted to know what book do you all think is the most representative book for our Religion?

Thanks as always and many Blessings,


May Athena bless you with wisdom

You couldn't go wrong with the universality of Homer or Hesiod.

"O Best of Gods, blest daimon crown'd with fire . . . hear, and from punishment my soul absolve, the punishment incurr'd by pristine guilt, thro' Lethe's darkness and terrene desire: and if for long-extended years I'm doom'd in these drear realms Heav'n's exile to remain, O grant me soon the necessary means to gain that good which solitude confers on souls emerging from the bitter waves of fraudful Hyle's black, impetuous flood!"
-Iulianic Hymn to Apollon-Helios, ll. 65-106

"Having come for punishment, one must be punished. One must not pull apart the god within oneself."
-Iamblichus, Vita Pythagorica

"Truth would you teach, or save a sinking land,
All hear, none aid you, and few understand."
-Alexander Pope
