Of Goddesses, Gods, and Ghosts at the Crossroads – A Comparative Indo-European Exploration

Upon The Occasion Of Our Associate’s Pilgrimage To Offer To Athena The Parthenon At Nashville

It is occasionally said that what we do in the sphere of Indo-European religious revival is "Theoretical". It is. Yet it is also practical - it guides and informs praxis.

The Return Of Myth To Raffles Girls’ School – A Spontaneous Singaporean Resurgence Of Athenian Piety … Opposed By School Authorities

This is .. well, it's a few things. One of which is infuriating. The statue above is from Raffles Girls School in Singapore. It is a pretty prestigious academic institution.
