Rings have been associated with marriage since Roman times, but they didn't necessarily look like the modern ones. This episode tracks the history of the ring from the Romans, through the middle Ages (with a brief diversion to JRR Tolkien), by way of the Anglicans and the Puritans, and direct to a huge 20th century advertising success that led us to the now more-or-less obligatory diamond ring on so many married women's fingers.Visit the website (herhalfofhistory.com) for sources, transcripts, and pictures.Support the show on my Patreon page for bonus episodes, polls, and a general feeling of self-satisfaction.Follow me on Twitter as @her_half.

As Nienna mourns the destruction, Melkor goes to Formenos, slays Finwë, steals the Silmarils, and sneaks away.

Foresighted was he! Even for those who are mightiest under Ilúvatar there is some work that they may accomplish once, and once only. The Light of the Trees I brought into being, and within Eä I can do so never again. Yet had I but a little of that light I could recall life to the Trees, ere their roots decay; and then our hurt should be healed, and the malice of Melkor be confounded.'"

“The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” is a fitting final volume to Tolkien's masterpiece. Published in 1955, and despite the massive spoiler in the title, this book manages to squeeze in as much story as possible. In fact, those who have only watched Peter Jackson's film version will be surprised to learn they've only been told half the tale. Tolkien leaves no tangent untied in his culminating War of the Ring and neither will Blake and Seamus as they finishing ringing in the new year.

Este es un relato en homenaje al maestro J.R.R. Tolkien y el poema mediante el cual trató de poner en valor el género fantástico, largo tiempo denostado por académicos e intelectuales de su tiempo. Tolkien se lo escribió a su a amigo C.S Lewis tras una conversación en la que Lewis ponía en duda el valor de los mitos y leyendas fantásticas más allá de unos meros principios estéticos. "Crear es penetrar en el reino objetivo y supra humano de la Fantasía, tras el cual “existen voluntades y poderes reales que no dependen de las mentes e intenciones de los hombres.” La visión de Tolkien coincide, por tanto, con la tradicional. No en vano, inventar proviene del latín, “invenire”, o venir hacia dentro, vocablo que originalmente significaba de hallar o descubrir. Por lo tanto, quien inventa solamente descubre algo que existe previamente en el mundo de la Fantasía, al que se accede ensimismándose: es decir, metiéndose dentro de uno mismo. Convencido de que la Fantasía existe por sí misma y es independiente de nuestra voluntad, nuestro querido profesor la consideraba un mundo secundario, frente a la vigilia, ese mundo primario que habitamos cuando estamos despiertos: otorga así a ambos la misma realidad".

In “The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers”, the second volume of J.R.R. Tolkien's most famous high fantasy novel, the narrative splits into two major streams. One follows the ringbearers into the foothills of Mordor, the other follows the rest of the original Fellowship as they enter the world of Orcs, men, and even Ents. These divergent paths expand the horizons of Middle Earth, test our favourite characters, and introduce some new ones. Far from a flop, this follow-up instalment may have two timelines but from Blake and Seamus it's easy to stay on the same page.  Some of the books and authors discussed in this episode include: "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers” by J.R.R.

De laatste aflevering van dit jaar, en met Kerst in aantocht maken we er altijd iets bijzonders van. We hebben onze stamgast Anton de Wit uitgenodigd om te komen praten over wat Kerst te maken heeft met mythes en sprookjes. En we doen dat door de lens van twee grote schrijvers en intellectuelen: J.R.R Tolkien, bekend van Lord of the Rings (toch wel een van de grote mythen van de 20ste eeuw), en zijn vriend C.S. Lewis, onder meer bekend van Narnia. Wees gerust, ook al ben je niet bekend met hun werk dan nog is deze aflevering zeer relevant. Alles wat je moet weten wordt uitgelegd en het werpt een nieuw licht op de verhouding tussen het Kerstverhaal en de mythen waar Lewis en Tolkien zo van hielden. David Boogerd gaat in gesprek met Anton de Wit, hoofdredacteur van het Katholiek Nieuwsblad en zelf ook schrijver van sprookjes, en natuurlijk vaste gast theoloog Stefan Paas, die een vurig voorstander blijkt van mythen.

What was the purpose of Númenor? In this episode, we explore that question through the lens of the song of Númenor.Many of you know that I have argued that Númenor's purpose went beyond being a mere reward for the descendants of the Edain, and seemed to be filled with symbolism and rituals intended to point them to a greater destiny both in this world and beyond it. "Lovely is Númenor. But my heart resteth not here for ever; for here is ending, and there will be an end and the Fading, when all is counted, and all numbered at last, but yet it will not be enough, not enough.

Last week I did my top five acts of compassion in Star Wars. And I received the suggestion several times that the perfect follow-up was to look for compassion in Thje Lord of the Rings. Written by JRR Tolkien, published in 1954-1955, the adventures of Frodo, Gandalf and their friends is a favourite to many! And it is full of love, friendship, kindness, and compassion. So here are my top five stories of compassion in The Lord of The Rings. I hope you enjoy it!

JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, and their friends coined the phrase, “Jesus is the true myth”. He is the better, truer story. He is the author of all other stories. Whether we recognize his penmanship or not, he is carefully crafting a far better narrative than we could ever come up with on our own. That is why he chooses to disrupt the story of humanity. In our text this week, we see God surprisingly visit Mary and completely change her plans. Any hope she had for life to move in a certain direction would be completely altered because of Gabriel's announcement. Although she was a virgin, she would become pregnant with the Son of God. He would be great, would bring peace to the world, would assume the throne of David, and rule forever. Oh, the possibilities! The life-changing declaration and miracle! This interruption brought with it the unexpected, but deeply longed-for, salvation of the world. And on top of all that, God would choose to partner with humanity to unfold this new story. God put on flesh as a desperately needy human baby and partnered with young Mary to rewrite the course of human history. Likewise, God interrupts our lives, offering amazing possibilities, and commits himself to partner with us.This is the story of Advent.

Is there a deeper message that Tolkien himself took away from writing the scene of Frodo's failure? What bits of wisdom can we glean from Tolkien's commentary on Frodo's failure at Mt Doom?We'll dive into these questions and seek to understand what deeper truths about mercy, justice, and suffering Tolkien took away from the stark reality of Frodo's failure.
