Wilton Cross
Anglo-Saxon
675-700 AD
British Museum [x]
The date stamped on the byzantine coin used in the cross as well as the style of cloissone were used to date this jewelry. Dating non-organic items is extremely difficult. Normally they have to be based on organic material around it, like the date of a ship it was found in or the date of a body it was buried with. But even those are estimatez and only give the end of the frame work. For instance i could die with a ring on from the 18th century, but my body doesn’t relay that information. Luckily here they had a beggining and a stylistic dating to rely on in addition to any other details.

Anonymous asked: Would you say polytheism is makes more sense to you than monotheism? Why?


Answer:

The logic behind polytheism is that the diverse aspects of the experience of being; from human ones like various emotions, attributes and qualities to natural ones like the earth, the sun, the night, sex, death etc are all expressions of divinity or can be expressed as divinities and understood and properly experienced through symbolic representation.

The sense of monotheism begins with an assertion which must be taken as a fact which exists outside of the realm of being -  “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with the God"  - There is no "sense" to that, it doesn’t refer to senses or to the universe or our experience of being in it.

I’ve said before, I’m not really concerned with number in a spiritual sense; whether divinity is one or many makes no difference to me. I oppose iconoclasm though and celebrate symbolic representation of divinity in all religions.
