Today’s PODCAzT presents a reading from St. Fulgentius of Ruspe (+533) appearing in the Office of Readings. We have seen Fulgentius before.
Did you know Fulgentius was involved in getting St. Augustine’s bones out of N. Africa?
I also speak about the importance and limitations of the Historical Critical Method of looking at ancient texts, especially Sacred Scripture. The Holy Father talks about this method, and its limitations, and he uses it in his new book, Jesus of Nazareth. So far, the book is not out in English, but it will be coming in May. You can pre-order it, thus saving some of your hard-earned money, and also help WDTPRS at the same time.
We also hear some advice from the Devil about how to use the Historical Critical Method to destroy the truth in texts and make them irrelevant. We have a reading from The Screwtape Letters in an audio version with John Cleese (of Monty Python fame).
