The altar of Zeus smoulders on the hill behind Pergamum like a giant seat, here referred to as the throne of satan, who is often depicted as a snake or a dragon. A double-edged sword hangs above the head of the snake. Aesculapius is one of the main gods: there is a famous teaching hospital. Pergamum also has one of the largest libraries of its time and invented parchment to write on. Pergamum stands firm and holds on to the word, a large book. Some people in her church compromise and make life easier by giving into the other gods’ festivals.
