It once so happened that, in their travels, a Greek, an Egyptian, and a Northman came to the far-famed Sabbat of the witches.

There, with the others, they danced for the Horned, drank his wine, and made love for the corn.

Said the Northman: Behold, the rites of Freyr.

Said the Egyptian: Behold, the rites of Osiris.

Said the Greek: Behold, the rites of bull-faced Dionysos.

Now, this is no mere parable, but a true story; I, Steven of Prodea, tell it to you who saw it myself.

Truly is it said, All the world is the country of the Wise.
