"Graciously bestow upon all men felicity, the summit of which is the knowledge of the Gods." [Julian, Oration to the Mother of the Gods]

>First phase of the new version of Sallustius completed

>For much of the last week I have been working on a revised online version of Gilbert Murray’s translation of Sallustius’ On the Gods and the Cosmos. The first phase of that work is now completed.

To my knowledge, the text is now free of typographical errors and also of misleading monotheizing wordings that needlessly mar Murray’s translation in several places. All of these changes are described and justified in the endnotes.

The next step will be to add footnotes to each of the 21 sections of Sallustius’ Pagan Manifesto. These footnotes will be gathered from both Gilbert Murray and from A.D. Nock’s edition of Sallustius and who knows where else.

I’m also working on a future post titled “Who was Sallustius?”, as well as the next installment for the series on Modern Paganism and the Ancient Mysteries …..
