Film review: Agora
Well, I've not seen the film, and I am unlikely to, not for religious reasons, my faith enables me to think for myself, but for reasons too tedious to go into (Maybe, one day, my memoirs will be posthumously published!)
The only remark I wish to make is that St Cyril, being a great saint, comes in for a lot of stick, and not just by anti-Christians. In a selection of Christian spiritual writings the well-known Eastern Orthodox theologian Olivier Clement gives a brief pen-portrait of St Cyril in which he is made to resemble a Marlon Brando style godfather rather than a pillar of the Church. It is so sad, so pointless, so..... (fill in your own words!)
