Epic To Ordinary: Heaven And Earth In Christian Latin Hymns

Jesus riffling book pages in Mary's lapThe Christian Gospels conflate traditional Greco-Roman distinctions of epic and ordinary. The Gospel story of Lazarus epitomizes that extraordinary mixing. Christian Latin hymns followed the Gospels in bringing heaven to earth. Heaven in earthy incarnation characterizes the Christian way of salvation. “Let every age now recognize {Agnoscat omne saeculum},” a hymn probably written in the sixth century for the celebration of Christmas, brings together the epic and the ordinary, heaven and earth:
So Mary in her womb conceived
by seed bestowed by faithful word;
him whom a world does not sustain
a young girl’s belly now contains.

A manger’s confines he endured
who was author of light itself;
he with the father formed the sky,
he his mother’s swaddling donned.

Ana Maria Archila, Christine Blasey Ford And The Automatic Outgroup Derogation Of Men

By : Immigrant rights activist Ana Maria Archila and survivors rights activist Maria Gallagher joined forces recently in an elevator to ensure positive change. Shown here expressing their sorrow and rage after a powerful confrontation with Senator Flake, of Snowflake, Utah, a devout Mormon, who then in turn made a “tiny gesture” based on their peaceful demands. Archila suggested the Senator consider the security of his children and grandchildren for the next fifty years. Maria Gallagher, a sex abuse survivor, demanded he “look her in the eyes and tell her that the pain of millions of sexual assault survivors did not matter”.
Ana Maria Archila, Executive Director of the Center for Popular Democracy (CPD), put everything on the line and risked deportation from the United States by cornering and encouraging Sen. Flake into making that “tiny gesture” in order to protect our most basic political institutions.
Flake, as you will no doubt remember, voted to advance the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, who was known at that time to be an accused serial gang rapist, out of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
