  • 338 - Richard Rohlin - Universal History: The End of Babel

    19 ABR. 2024 · This is part two of our discussion about the Tower of Babel in the context of Universal History. Richard Rohlin and I recap and continue our discussion on the Book of Jubilees and Pentecost, discussing more in-depth the Feast of First Fruits, and what it means as a structure by which communion between heaven and earth can be facilitated - of unity and multiplicity. The duality of Pentecost explains several strange moments in Scripture and the apocryphal texts, most notably the laws of Noah, the covenant of Abraham, the scandal of Lot, and of course the Tower of Babel itself.

  • 337 - How to Survive the End of a World - A Parable of Christ

    13 ABR. 2024 · This video will premiere tomorrow, Saturday, April 13th at 10 am EST. In this short reflection, I will explain the parable of Jesus that’s the most difficult to understand, the Parable of the Penitent Steward, or the Unjust Steward. Recently I teamed up with Jordan Peterson, Daily Wire, and the same panel of the Exodus series, this time to film a series on the Gospels. The discussions pushed me to finally understand the parable after many years of pondering.  Sign up here to stay informed about our upcoming Symbolic World Course on Dante’s Inferno with Richard Rohlin: https://dashboard.mailerlite.com/forms/109126/117615160942658931/share — 💻 Website and blog: http://www.thesymbolicworld.com 🔗 Linktree: https://linktr.ee/jonathanpageau  🗣 Join The Symbolic World Community for discussions about symbolism: https://thesymbolicworld.com/subscribe  🔒 BECOME A PATRON: https://thesymbolicworld.com/subscribe  📱 SOCIAL MEDIA   Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/TheSymbolicWorld  Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/pageaujonathan  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jonathan.pageau Our website designers: https://www.resonancehq.io/  My intro was arranged and recorded by Matthew Wilkinson.

  • 336 - Timothy Patitsas - The Vital Sign of Beauty

    3 ABR. 2024 · This is my second interview with Timothy Patitsas on the topic of beauty. We also discuss filmmaking, the work of Dr. Iain Mcgilchrist, liturgy, self-sacrifice, and social renewal as part of the fruits of a beautiful life. Timothy G. Patitsas has been the Interim Dean of Hellenic College since January of 2020 and the Assistant Professor of Ethics at Holy Cross since the Fall of 2005. In 2019 he published The Ethics of Beauty, an attempt to recover one of the most ancient emphases of Orthodox spirituality, which is the firm priority given to combating the sensual rather than the intellectual passions. The book shows how this translates into a consoling and liberating Beauty-first approach to Orthodox ethics and life. The work also presents ethical, theological, and scriptural definitions of traumatic experience with a view to aiding recovery. - Original YouTube version: https://youtu.be/2CB1snUyy7Q?si=vi7_-88lsM2GBFWB - Direct and most affordable place to get Ethics of Beauty by Timothy Patitsas: https://www.stnicholaspress.net/ethics-of-beauty  - Timothy’s film company, Beauty First Films: https://www.beautyfirstfilms.com - The documentary film that Jonathan saw: Amphilochios: Saint of Patmos: https://www.beautyfirstfilms.com/amphilochios - Save the date!
