    That sounds right. Prudentius wrote Psychomachia around 400 A.D. The poem describes the fight between vice and virtue for the possesion of a soul. Often used to describe literature based on the allegorical "devil on one should, angel on the other" struggle within one's mind/soul.

    I am disappointed that nobody seems to have read my post. It is number 75, and admittedly it is rather long. It does discuss my personal account of the best of all religions, which sometimes becomes NO RELIGION.

    What it describes is Unitarian-Universalism, a "religion" which mandates one to believe or refuse whatever is best for one. If you think that all religion is horse manure, you should believe that. If you think any other religion or belief system has something to offer you should follow that.

    In other words, Unitarian-Universalism mandates that you incorporate the best of all belief systems and the rejection of all of their hog wash as directed by the brain that you were born with.

    Go now in peace :kiss
