Ainulindalë – The Creation Story

We’ve just finished the Creation Myth of Tolkien and will make a podcast episode shortly! It ties wonderfully in with several aspects of Paradiso in the Divine Comedy, the opening of the Biblical Stories, Greek Mythology, Aristotelian metaphysics, and some aspects of the “battle of the brain hemsipheres” too. But more than that, it’s a brilliant and beautiful story, with breath-taking depth and scope. And it adds an even larger context of wisdom and cosmology to the Lord of the Rings stories.
