Here is a dose of daily religion from A to Z.

Today’s religious topic is as follows:

”Aload, Greek Aloada, or Aloeida, in Greek myth, name for either Otus or Ephialtes, the gigantic twin sons of Iphimedeia by the god POSEIDON. The Aloads fought against the Olympian gods and endeavored to storm Olympus, but APOLLO destroyed them before they reached manhood. In a later myth they sought ARTEMIS (goddess of wild animals, vegetation, and childbirth) and HERA (wife of ZEUS) in marriage, whereupon Artemis appeared between them in the shape of a stag, which they attempted to kill but instead slew each other.

(Comeback on 8/30/14 and continue to learn about religion. Tomorrow you’ll read and learn about “Alpha and Omega”.

The Taming of the Shrew




SCENE I.—The same. A Room in BAP-

TISTA’S House.

Re-enter HORTENSIO, with his head broken.

Bap. How now, y friend! why dost thou

look so pale?

Hor. For fear, I promise you, if I look pale.

Bap. What, will my daughter prove a good


Hor. I think she’ll sooner prove a soldier:

Iron may hold with her, but never lutes.

Bap. Why, then thou canst not break her to

the lute?

Hor. Why, no; for she hath broke the lute

to me.

I did but tell her she mistook her frets.

And how’d her hand to teach her fingering,

When, with a most impatient devilish spirit,

Frets, call you these? quoth she; I’l fume with


And, with that word, she struck me on the


And through the instrument my pate made


And there I stood amazed for awhile,

As on a pillory, looking through the lute,

While she did call me rascal fiddler

And twangling Jack, with twenty such vile


As she had studied to misuse me so.

Pet. Now, by the world, it is a lusty wench;

I love her ten times more than e’er I did:

O, how I long to have some chat with her!

Bap. Well, go with me, and be not so dis-


Proceed in practice with my younger daughter:

She’s apt to learn, and thankful for good


Signior Petruchio, will you go with us,

Or shall I send my daughter Kate to you?

Pet. I pray you do: I will attend her here,

[Exeunt, BAP., GRE., TRA., and HOR.

And woo her with some spirit when she comes.

Say that she rail; why, then I’ll tell her plan

She sings as sweetly as a nightingale:

Say that she frown; I’ll say she looks as clear

As morning roses newly washed with dew:

Say she mute, and will not speak a word;

Then I’ll commend her volubility,

And say she uttereth piercing eloquence:

If she do bid me pack, I’ll give her thanks,

As though she bid me stay by her a week:

If she deny to wed, I’ll crave the day

When I shall ask the banns, and when be


But here she comes; and now, Petruchio, speak.

We will continue with ACT I!. SCENE I.—The same. A Room in BAPTISTA’s House.)
