Today we are talking about the way of cross and dragon we are joined by Miss Sandy I’ll Gable from the Island map talk like me of cross and dragon is deep exploration of George RR Martin‘s view on religion so far we’ve seen religion for trade pretty negatively in in the house of the worm the swithland trilogy call a Moses and and and 7 times never kill man not to mention all the horror face in ice and fire we know from interviews that yours are Martin is an atheist but he was raised that way he was raised a Catholic but lost his faith around the time we went to college at Northwestern and was exposed to new viewpoints later on George RR Martin took a job at the Catholic University Clark in Dubuque Iowa and the way of cross and dragon was written during this. George R. R. Martin – The Way of Cross and Dragon Audiobook . Of course it’s no secret that the faith of the seven is a thinly-veiled commentary on the Catholic church and its of note that the priests paraphrase of the is not portrayed horribly in ice and fire they certainly aren’t zealots like the later Sparrow movement or the followers of the red God and in fact the faith provides characters like Catalan and Davos with some much-needed Comfort during hard times but it’s that very justification that yours are Martin boldly takes on in this story the comfort of Faith the way of cross and dragon stars are protagonist Father Damien har Veris Damien means to tame or to overcome and Damien’s name is almost certainly also a reference to The Exorcist where the character Father Damien was also a questioning priest Damian is an Inquisitor of the one true Interstellar Catholic Church of Earth and a thousand worlds this is actually the story where we get the term thousand worlds from the informal name of this universe or the Catholic church has expanded throughout the man realm and now even aliens have taken on the religion the faith is also militarized and it has inquisitors the keep the religion from being misinterpreted the military nation of religion is of course I think we’ve seen quite a bit in George RR Martin‘s stories Our Story begins with Damien speaking with his boss the alien Archbishop Torgeson about his last mission a lot of people died on Damien’s last mission and he’s clearly quite disheartened and wanting to take some time off that said Damian is quite effective at his job and torque Athan wants him back out into the field relationship with his unfailing Superior is very similar to let me sign my hero women uncaring unfailing bureaucracy and an individual who feels unhappy as a bug getting any better the church is now accepting people like Torgeson who’s a strange sea creature like alien but who is also a very stubborn he doesn’t mind seeing the blood of Martyrs or Heretics spilled and Damian thinks that his mindset will cause him to rise and the church is bureaucracy Damian is given the task to root out some Heretics the following offshoot of Catholicism that believes that Judas was a dragon Saint and so Damian heads off to their Planet while studying up on the cult of Judas the holy book of the Judas called is the way of cross and dragon and a considerable amount of the story is dedicated to the story of Judas close to 1/4 so I tend to assume that our author is trying to communicate something symbolically through this story Judah starts out as a hore in Babylon and then learns to bind dragons to as well become a conqueror least heard this part of the story before June has been conquered until he met Jesus and proceeded to cut off Jesus’s legs commanding Jesus to heal thyself Judas then head of vision and repented Judas carried Jesus upon his back until Jesus regrow his legs Judas then went off with his dragons to spread the word of Jesus Jesus was then betrayed and killed by Peter after which Judas returned became Roth had Peter devoured by four dragons and then started performing Mass atrocities in Jesus’s name but then Jesus returns from the dead and is upset with Judas for corrupt his teachings and killing people he blinds Judas killed us dragons and gives a newly-formed Peter dominion over the church has been wonders the Earth for a thousand years teaching loving nature and healing Jesus finally reconciled with Judith and Judas is laid to rest now there’s a lot in the story but the characters bring up four aspects there’s dragons a legless Christ Peter being pieced together from four pieces and most importantly Judas weeping over the death of dragons . George R. R. Martin – The Way of Cross and Dragon Audiobook .  if I were to guess what the story means I would say Judas represents humanity and I would say that dragons represent religion or myth at first Humanity invent meth to conquer and then Jesus comes along and teaches love and healing the first Humanity reject Jesus but then incorporates the message into their religion they carry it and spread far and wide is the carrying of legless Jesus however the message is corrupted and used for killing
