    1. For those who like classics, this is one of those books that are probably a bit off the beaten path, and worthy of checking out. Apollonius of Tyana was a miracle worker of antiquity who was, if he really lived, a near contemporary of Jesus. So for all you neo-pagans out there who are looking for a pagan holy man as a counterpart to Jesus, well this is your guy. I don't know if he really lived; he might at least have been inspired by someone at the time.The story has our hero traveling the world [...]


    2. It’s a thorough and at times interesting exposition of a less-recognized Roman orator-philosopher who some thought might be a rival to Jesus. But by offering what’s essentially an information dump (in contrast to the more artfully crafted works created by Jesus’ followers), Apollonius isn’t seem as having quite the same street, or mount, cred.

    4. Probably the first example in literature of an insufferable Vegetarian. This book was written by Philostratus on request of a Roman Empress; I get the distinct impression that the author "phoned it in." Apollonius was a 1st century CE "philosopher" and reformer of pagan practices. He was a Pythagorean, and therefore opposed animal sacrifice (which by the way provided meat to the people during religious festivals). He also performed many miracles--raising the dead, etc. He made some enemies along [...]
