Synopsis

Charis is a humanist account of the Christian bible and its traditions, seeking to unravel the human motivations that lay behind the biblical texts. Written as a sequence of four testaments, The Tribe considers the relationship between the physical, political and social location of the Jews 3000 years ago, and the beliefs and scriptures that these inspired. The Soul explores the evolution of early Christianity, a spiritualised version of Judaism, heavily influenced by Greek philosophy, ultimately forged by Roman oppression. The State examines the genius of Catholicism, with its shrewd combination of Christianity, Judaism and Roman paganism designed to install religious conformity and political control across Europe. The Individual King considers the more recent separation of religion from politics and the reaction of individuals to their new found religious freedom. Consistent with the theological content of the bible, and its historical locations, Charis is on a quest to reveal the genius of human thought that inspired Judaism, Christianity, Catholicism, and eventual agnosticism.
