Legends of the Fall: Index
Posted by turmarion
I originally said that the “Legends of the Fall” series has finally come to a close. As can be seen by the increasing number of posts after the “Addenda” heading below, and as I discuss in “Adam, Eve, and Monogenesis”, and “Whither Hence?” I was wrong, and the series is likely to be open for some time. I’m not even sure if I think it can be brought to a satisfactory close, even in the short term. In any case, for those who have come to it late, or read only parts, or who want to read it all over again (who knows–there may be some of you out there…), the links to every post in the series, from beginning to end, are given below.
Addendum: As this series has meandered along into subsidiary but connected areas, it has spawned at least three sub-series. As those series themselves have meandered along, they’ve ended up with some posts that I didn’t cross-post here. Thus, I’m putting links to the series indices right above the posts proper for this series.
Religious Miscellany (This is not a sub-series of “Legends of the Fall”, but a series I use for any religiously oriented articles that didn’t fit obviously into the other series. However, some of the posts there may be relevant at times, if only tangentially, so I’m linking to it here, also)
Legends of the Fall: Posts
Interlude: Pre-existence, or Déjà Vu All Over Again (I accidentally made another post on this topic somewhat later. Having re-read this, I think it is better-written and does a better job of making the case. Nevertheless, both posts argue from the same basic perspective)
Excursus: Pre-existence (Again!)
The following posts are a follow-up miniseries addressing some issues I neglected in the original series.
Some Theories of Atonement, or Love, not Honor or Substitution This post, by Father Nathan O’Halloran, S. J., is reblogged from Vox Nova. I’ve touched on the idea of the Atonement in the course of this series insofar as it has implications for the concept of the Fall and the interpretations of the Fall which I have been discussing. Thus I’m adding this as a sort of guest post that goes into more detail on that particular aspect of the issues I’ve been dealing with here. The original post at Vox Nova is here.
Atonement Theology This post was reblogged from the blog Triangulations, and gives an excellent summary of various schools of thought on the Atonement.
