(ORP) Ancient books in the Library of Cyrene
« on: 01 November, 2018, 12:46:53 PM »
Emma took it upon herself to start re-reading all of the ancient books in the Library at Cyrene. The academy itself was recent rebuilt, but many ancient books had been rediscovered, some extremely rare, written in ancient Cyrenic script. Some visiting scholars had also donated parchments and scrolls.

She brought a scroll to her desk and started the laborious task of translation.

Ichtum Theos allenerà. Hosenal Theos

Exists Theos everywhere. Worship Theos or
Theos is eternal. Seek Theos

Only the word Theos had a clear meaning. The other words could be translated in different ways depending on the context.

Emma si incaricò di iniziare a rileggere tutti i libri antichi della Biblioteca di Cirene. La stessa accademia fu ricostruita di recente, ma molti libri antichi erano stati riscoperti, alcuni estremamente rari, scritti in caratteri cirillici antichi. Alcuni studiosi in visita avevano anche donato pergamene e pergamene.

Portò una pergamena sulla sua scrivania e iniziò il laborioso compito di traduzione.

Ichtum Theos allenerà. Teos Hosenal

Esiste Theos ovunque. Culto Theos o
Theos è eterno. Cerca Theos

Solo la parola Theos aveva un chiaro significato. Le altre parole potrebbero essere tradotte in modi diversi a seconda del contesto.

Wise words. Such texts as this could be collect in a scroll. Can you share with us, whenever possible, a holy text? I would like to make a scroll from it.

Ernesto went to the academy, intending to study Theology, when he noticed that that Emma and Pero were looking at some old dusty scrolls.

"I'm curious to know why these particular scrolls are of interest", said Ernesto.

Emma turned and smiled at Father Ernesto.

“I have a number of Theologic texts and some Mystic also. The Mystic scrolls are harder to translate; I will need to visit an Iman for advice.”

She put down the Mystic scrolls and picked up another bundle.

“Be careful with these, the parchment is very old, but they all mention Theos. Would you like to have them copied by a scribe for the Pontifical library? I want the originals back, of course.”

I turned my eyes to Ernesto and greeted him:

Father Ernesto, it is a honor to meet you in person!

And then back to Emma:

Lady Emma,

will you copy a Theological text for me or allow me to copy one of your choosing?

I am a copyist and scroll collector and my personal library (already accessible in Cyrene's market) would be more far-reaching in scope and topics if I could acquire the essential texts from all religions.
