School of Athens - Raphael

Antiquity at Troynovant:
inspirations from ancient times,
largely of the Classical world & worldview
base & noble people, events, ideas;
listed by Title

Note that many references and allusions to the Classical civilizations of Greece and Rome are not indexed here, let alone the growing plentitude of other lights of ancient days which help illumine the byways into our Troynovant.

A great value of antiquity lies in the fact that its writings are the only ones that modern men still read with exactness.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Undercurrents James H. Schmitz RW Franson

What's in the brain that ink may character
Which hath not figured to thee my true spirit? ...

So that eternal love in love's fresh case
Weighs not the dust and injury of age,
Nor gives to necessary wrinkles place,
But makes antiquity for aye his page,
   Finding the first conceit of love there bred
   Where time and outward form would show it dead.

William Shakespeare
Sonnets, 108
