“There was Eru, the One, who in Arda is called Ilúvatar; and he made first the Ainur, the Holy Ones, that were the offspring of his thought, and they were with him before aught else was made..” (The Silmarillion)

Thus begins the history of Middle Earth, J.R.R. Tolkien’s complex, profound, captivating and increasingly popular created world. The Silmarillion, published four years after the death of its author, is an account of the Elder Days, or the First Age of the World. The first sections of this work deal with the creation of Middle Earth and the works and wars of the supernatural beings which formed and fashioned it.

As we look into the rich depths of this unique work, we will consider questions of epic history, theology, poetry, mythology and good versus evil at it’s most basic level. It might be hectic, it might even be controversial, but it certainly won’t be boring! Join us this weekend in #thehalloffire when we begin our study of The Silmarillion as we discuss “The Silmarillion – Ainulindale.”
