In this 3rd installment of From the Vault of Antiquity, Joe McDonald sifts through the garbage filled detritus heaps of the ancients. Truly, this show features writing that had been thrown away by someone at that time. He culls together various papyri from the first 4 centuries of the current era and by so doing provides us with a glimpse of the ordinary human mind. Passions, hopes and fears are delivered to the listener in the original Greek and his new English translations.
