The group will meet on the 4th Friday of the month @ 10.15 a.m. in the Weston Favell area.
The new mythology group is up and running. We met for a preliminary time in December and having reviewed the field realised there was enough to keep us busy for perhaps the next twenty years! As life is short and art is long we decided to concentrate to start with on the Greek and then Roman mythology. This fitted in with other groups some members attended like Art, Poetry and Theology and we also felt we already had some knowledge to work on.
Subsequently we have had two working meetings, which have proved stimulating and enjoyable. So far we have looked at a lot of preliminary material like maps and history and some of the main personnel, as well as looking at the sources and books available. We have now got onto some of the main gods and the exciting bits and we have a plan to get onto the stories and the gory bits.
With a lot of the preparatory work done we now hope to enjoy ourselves! We are also thinking of some trips out to look at art, sculpture and ceramics to see how the gods and their activities inspired others. Perhaps when the weather gets better!
