Hullo Tolkien Fans!
It’s time to announce our next topic for The Hall of Fire, our twice monthly Tolkien debate. Check it out:
Tolkien and Religion, Part II: The Modern Faiths
Readers of Tolkien around the world have debated this topic since Middle-earth’s creation, and now it’s your turn. Is the Professor’s work analagous of any of today’s religions? One or two may come to mind… Or perhaps Tolkien merely drew on the symbolism present in some of today’s faiths.
What do you think? Come on down to share your views on Tolkien and Religion this weekend.
