  •  I was joking about the aardvark's ability (6+ / 0-)

    to quote Scripture. However, I do think that for Western folks the Hebrew, Christian and Muslim Scriptures are a must-read. There's some good stuff in there, even just as literature.

    Well-read means you have to have read other literature, but to me, it also includes the Scriptures and, I'll add, a smattering of Aquinas, Augustine, Luther and others. We cannot understand Western culture without understanding the three major religions that helped to form it.
