Etruscan Dawn

If the Old Gods exist—I would contend that they do—one would expect them to show themselves differently to different peoples in different times and places.

And that, in fact, is exactly what we find.

Video shared by on in Studies Blogs

Ok everyone! We made a few more videos. This one deals with the chapters in Ronald Huttons book Triumph of The Moon "Finding a Structure" "Finding a High Magic" and "Finding a Low Magic". I only went mildly crazy trying to make this video. Check it out if your too busy to read and just want bite size clips on these chapters. As always thanks so much for watching and if you liked it ... well, maybe you could like the video on youtuber subscribe? Just throwin' that out there. Mull it over. 

Blessings!
