Noël Number Nine


Some archive classics to kick off the ninth millinerd Christmas: Santa and my one (and only) podcast. Much to come in the year ahead, because amidst twitter (join us, won't you?), guest posts elsewhere, and offsite articles (left sidebar), there still seems to be room for blogs in the world, and some measure of internet consistency remains an amusing novelty. Drop me a feedback line if you're still with us, but only if you're so inclined. Suggestions welcome.

Merry Christmas millinerd readers - all twelve days of it. We know you have a choice of opinion providers, and we appreciate your coming our way. Thanks for reading.

Check in every day.

I come for the art and religion commentary. An article I recently read by Wm. T. Cavanaugh has me interested to read about the hidden metaphysics of the modern state -- more to the point am wondering about the role modern art played as water carrier for these assumptions (thinking of more subtle manifestations than this: http://www.nytimes.com/books/00/04/23/reviews/000423.23joffet.html?_r=3&oref=slogin).

Also, interested in iconography. I'm a fan of flemish primitive and northern renaissance liturgical art (Eyck to Gerard David) -- I think it's a high point of western iconography, but the Orthodox will never have it.

But anything you write is interesting, so please keep it up.

Thanks Sean. Interesting. Modern art certainly helped generate the modern state's hidden metaphysic, but then did much to resist it as well.
