The drama of longing and searching for the unitary reality which is the alpha and omega of all creation—in the functional interplay of all the opposites—rests on the shoulders of Adam and Eve and characters like them in the mythologies of the world.
In his presentation, Russell Holmes will consider the classic expression in the drama in the theology and art of St. Augustine (The City of God), Dante Alighieri (The Divine Comedy) and John Milton (Paradise Lost) and in mandala symbolism. Reference will be made to unconscious material representing current expressions of the drama.
