This website is a continuation of  A great deal of material under much the same headings can still be found at the earlier site. Some of the earlier material will over time be transferred here or to my new British Values website - or perhaps my even newer Labour values website.

Form and History

Material relating to the twentieth century Cubist painter ALBERT GLEIZES and his school

Art and Religion

More general material relating to the visual arts and to the reasons why they should be taken seriously, which I take to be, in the broadest sense of the word, 'religious'

Politics and Theology

Largely concerned with the theological implications of politics and with the many circumstances in which religious and political beliefs interact.

New items (Jan 2018): - a bird's eye view of Orthodox intellectual and political history; an account of the early days of the Moscow patriarchate (coinciding with the earlky days of the Bolshevik revolution); and a further episode in the ongoing series on Solzhenitsyn.  


Poems by myself and others and (perhaps eventually) reflections on poetry
