Remember the rood

Just a reminder of my posting this time last year, where I introduced to some of you, “The Dream of the Rood”:

“The Passion” meets “The Lord of the Rings” this Saturday

  1. I thought I’d responded, but it appears to have disappeared. Anyway–glad you posted the reminder. I’ve also found the Dream in a handy PDF, from York University (in Canada), as part of its nifty little “In parentheses” series: Look specifically at the “Old English” series for the Rood.

    Your post also reminds me of the cross I prefer to wear–an Icelandic one. Fairly pagan. Well, basically a pagan design absorbed by the Icelandic conversion to Christianity. I like that merger of biblical + pagan, and the Rood seems to speak to some of that.
