Calling something "practically medieval" is never really a positive thing. But were the so-called Dark Ages really so dark? Onsi, Colin, and Rhys set out to bust some medieval myths prominent among Protestants, and in Western culture at large. They talk about technology, science, sex, death, feudalism, personal piety, and more. NOTE: most books bel…
 
We talk a lot about the sin and scandal of public figures in the Church... but do we talk about talking about it? That's what Onsi, Colin, and Rhys do this week! How can a philosophy and theology of sin affect the way that we talk about it? NOTE: most books below are linked via Bookshop.org. Any purchases you make via these links give The Davenant …
 
Have childless philosophers ruined Western civilization? Why are great intellectuals usually such terrible fathers and husbands anyway? And is it easier to be a theologian parent than a philosopher parent? This week, Onsi and Rhys are joined by Davenant Teaching Fellow Alastair Roberts to discuss the relationship between celibacy and the intellectu…
 
It's the middle of summer... so we're talking about spring! Launching off of "Ver Erat Aeternum", an Ad Fontes essay by E.J. Hutchinson, Onsi, Colin, and Rhys discuss the season. Why is it historically associated with Paradise in different cultures, and is that right? And are created phenomena like the seasons meant to teach us anything? NOTE: most…
 
What is piety? What happened to it? And can we make it great again? This week Onsi, Colin, and Rhys talk about piety (not to confused with "pietism" or "piousness") - our natural bonds and relationship to those around us. They cover its place in the ancient world, what the Reformation had to say, and what (if anything) it might look like today. NOT…
 
Do you have free will in listening to this podcast? Listen and find out! This week Onsi, Colin, and Rhys discuss free will, launching off of The Davenant Institute's new translation of Peter Martyr Vermigli''s On Free Will and the Law. They discuss the Greek myths and philosophers, totaly depravity, God's foreknowledge, and the pastoral relevance o…
 
Does this podcast have a hidden meaning? Probably not. But plenty of history's great writings have hidden meanings (well, maybe they do). This week, Rhys and Colin discuss esoteric writing, where the author's real meaning is veiled, and apparent only to a small inner group with the right knowledge (often to prevent themselves getting killed). Sprin…
 
How should Christians think about law? Not the Levitical law, but law itself in our nations and societies. What even is a law? How is our legal tradition founded in Greek philosophy? How did Augustine and Aquinas develop that? This week, Onsi and Rhys grill Colin on these questions and more, off the back of his recent Davenant House intensive on th…
 
John Donne is one of history's great poets. He taught us that "no man is an island" and to not ask "for whom the bell tolls". Yet he is often overlooked by Protestants as a Protestant. This week Onsi, Colin, and Rhys talk about Donne's life and divine poetry, the limits of language, and what we can learn from him as a Protestant poet. NOTE: most bo…
 
This week we come to you direct from Davenant House! Recorded during our Annual Convivium Irenicum (and so apologies for slightly subpar audio quality), Onsi and Colin talk with Michael Lynch about classical education. Or rather, how much of what calls itself classical education isn't that classical at all. How can we remedy that? What should a rea…
 
Did you know you're already a philosopher? Sorry to break it to you. This week Onsi, Colin, and Rhys discuss the role of philosophy in the Christian life, but not how you might think. Springing off of "Philosophy As A Way of Life", a Davenant essay by Peter Escalante and Joseph Minich, they lay out the current divide between analytic and continenta…
 
Something's changed when it comes to evangelicals and evolution. One of the hottest and most divisive topics in the early 2000s doesn't cause the arguments it used to - and it's not because everyone now believes in evolution. This week Onsi, Colin, and Rhys consider why these debates have cooled, and whether that gives us a chance to consider what …
 
Is the Lord's Supper really a big deal in the Christian life? The Reformers thought so - arguably, more so than the Roman Catholics. Yet we seem to have lost that in the Reformed world today. This week, Onsi and Rhys and joined by Brad Littlejohn, President of The Davenant Institute (i.e. their boss) to talk about the distinctives and importance of…
 
That's right - aliens. Belief in extra-terrestrial lifeforms no longer belongs to society's fringes, but is widespread in academia and the scientific community. NASA are returning to the moon, and Elon Musk has made space great again. Does the Christian tradition have the resources to offer counsel in a world turning again to the stars? And what do…
 
Some people think the revolutions of the 18th century can be blamed on Protesantism. Yet others think that Protestant churches are too often the handmaidens of the state. What gives? This week Onsi, Colin, and Rhys are joined by Dr. Miles Smith to discuss the history of Protestants and revolution, and what we can learn from Protestants of the past.…
 
St. Augustine is probably the Western church's greatest ever theologian, foundational for Protestants and Catholics alike. But didn't he say lots of weird (and bad) stuff about sex? And hasn't that had a long and damaging legacy? Springing off of a recent article of Onsi's, this week the hosts take a closer look at what Augustine said about sex and…
 
Was the novel an inevitable result of Protestantism? And has the decline of mainline Protestantism led to the decline of the novel? Onsi, Colin, and Rhys bat these questions around this week, jumping off of Joseph Bottum's recent book The Decline of the Novel (reviewed by Rhys in the forthcoming edition of Ad Fontes!) APOLOGY: the quality of some a…
 
Do the Bible, the church, and philosophers agree on what the soul is? Far from it. This week, Onsi, Colin, and Rhys ask how (if at all) we can fit together the contributions of Scripture, Aristotle, and Descartes to work out what the soul is, how much reason can know about it, and if it's immortal (before descending into metaphysical bickering). NO…
 
So how about that secularity huh? What is secularity (if it even exists)? This week our hosts bat around some of the most famous analyses of "secularity" to see whether or nor they're found wanting. NOTE: below, for works and books discussed on the show, we link to the products on Amazon for ease. However, we would strongly encourage you to find an…
 
Can anything be said about Easter that's not yet been said? Our hosts give it a good try in a wide-ranging conversation about whether the universe is a tragedy or a comedy! NOTE: Below, for works and books discussed on the show, we link to the products on Amazon for ease. However, we would strongly encourage you to find an alternative bookseller fr…
 
What is classical education? Does it provide moral formation? Is it responsible for Boris Johnson? And why are Christians interested in it? This week Onsi, Colin, and Rhys looks at this ever-growing movement, which is a key interest of The Davenant Institute. They discuss some key texts by Leo Strauss, Augustine, and Dorothy Sayers can inform how C…
 
Are reason and Scripture at odds with tradition? Can the Emperor tell church leaders to work out their differences? And is Martin Luther really "the Disney princess of the Reformation?" Onsi, Colin, and Rhys dig into all these questions and more this week as they talk about the Diet of Worms, where in 1521 Martin Luther was famously excommunicated.…
 
In the debut episode of The Davenant Institute's Ad Fontes podcast, Onsi, Colin, and Rhys talk about Lent. Lent has enjoyed a revival among evangelicals of late. Ash Wednesday is even still the third most attended day of the year in Roman Catholic churches, after Christmas and Easter. We throw out (wild and baseless) speculation as to why that is: …
