Content descriptions

General Note: Part 11 -- This program examines the earlier story, in subsequent legend and Christian iconography, of the conception of the creation as a dragon-killing, using it as poetic imagery rather than as sacred history. -- Part 12 -- This program explicates the long and short versions of the central structuring principle, showing how the Bible is constructed as a double mirror; events in the Old and New Testaments reflect each other, and not any historical reality outside the Bible.
"A lecture taped at Victoria College, University of Toronto."
