I’m still wrestling with a couple of posts that don’t seem to want to come out right, and with a serious lack of time… but in the meantime I do want to share this.

I am pleased to announce that the members of Neos Alexandria have begun work on the second volume in the Bibliotheca Alexandrina.
To help promote the revival of traditional polytheistic religions we are launching a series of books dedicated to the ancient gods of Greece and Egypt. Volumes will contain essays, poetry, devotional material, original artwork, etc focused on a particular divinity. The library will be a collaborative effort drawing on the combined resources of the different elements within the modern Hellenic and Kemetic communities, in the hope that we can come together to praise our gods and share our diverse understandings, experiences and approaches to the divine. All of the proceeds for these books will go to help promote the worship of the gods of Greece and Egypt, by being used to put on a Greco-Egyptian religious gathering in 2009, bring out further volumes in the series, or given to charitable causes in the name of the gods.
This volume will be dedicated to Thoth (Egyptian Djehuti) the inventor of writing, the scribe of the gods, the lord of wisdom and magic, and the establisher of peaceful concord in the world.
