Legends of the Fall: Index

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.

The Atonement

Polygenism Revisited

Universalism (What the Hell?!)

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)

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)

The Atonement

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.
