On today’s show on Passport to Middle-earth on CJMQ 88.9 for Quebec listeners, and Bishop’s University Radio Station online for everyone else, we’re going to talk about Numenor. We will cover its history, geography, people, but also the colonization of Middle-earth by the Numenoreans, and of course explain how and why the Downfall of the island occurred and investigate particularly on the role Sauron played in its destruction. We will also talk about a very interesting article, “The Gift of Death” by Grant Sterling, and explore a little deeper the concept of death and immortality as Tolkien presented them in his mythology.
So if you’re curious about Numenor, tune in! 4pm – 6pm Eastern Time.
