Dr. Adam Schwartz, whose great academic work, The Third Spring, was recently republished, discussed the theologies of history in G. K. Chesterton and the poet David Jones.

“They believed that Christianity united philosophy and mythology for the first time,” Schwartz said. “Whereas in the ancient world, myth and religion were considered one thing and philosophy quite another . . . Christianity rhymed these two roads to the truth due to its historicity.”
