Epilogue: The Thirteenth Symposium is the epilogue of The Testaments.


At a symposium, a group of academics discuss recent discoveries that have been made about the history of Gilead.


Professor Pieixoto presents the findings. He first references a discovery from a few years back of a collection of tapes from “Offred”.

More recently, two more finds have surfaced. First, The Ardua Hall Holograph, a manuscript found hidden between the covers of another book, Apologia Pro Vita Sua (Lydia’s manuscript).

Secondly, two witness testimonies have been located as well for two half-sister (Agnes and Nicole), which tell an interesting story. The professor notes that it’s possible the author of the tapes “Offred” may be the mother of the two half-sisters, Agnes and Nicole, but more research is needed.

Finally, he notes a statue and inscription they’ve come across, dedicated to someone named Becka. The inscription states that it was erected by Agnes and Nicole, their mother and two fathers, plus their children and grandchildren.
