“The Self-revealing of the Word is in every dimension - above, in creation; below, in the Incarnation; in the depth, in Hades; in the breadth, throughout the world. All things have been filled with the knowledge of God.”
― St. Athanasius, On the Incarnation
“I will use the word culture to mean the stories by which we try to hold back the melancholy suspicion that we live in a world without meaning.”
- Andrew Delbanco
