Nouvelle-France

"The largely Quebecois crowd roared with laughter as the song poked fun at an influx of snobbish, chain-smoking, 'know-it-all' French who are 'occupying' the Plateau-Mont-Royal neighborhood. The area is so replete with French residents, French bakeries and Parisian accents that it is sometimes referred to sardonically by Montrealers as 'Nouvelle-France,' France’s former North American colony."

Castillo Pyramid & Quetzal bird sound

"The Mayans engineered the acoustics of the Castillo pyramid at Chichen Itza to chirp like the Quetzal bird - but only when you are standing directly in line with the stairs. Here's a video of our Mayan tour guide (who was amazing!) teaching Nate how to get the Pyramid to chirp back at us."

Signs Gospel

Quoting Andrew Bernhard, author of The Lost Gospels, "The following reconstruction of the hypothetical source employed by the author of the fourth gospel is derived from the analysis found in Robert Fortna's The Fourth Gospel and Its Predecessor. The text of the Signs Gospel has been reconstructed using the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) of the Gospel of John; differences between the text of the Signs Gospel and the NRSV are printed in italics."

For context: "The Signs Gospel or the semeia source is a hypothetical gospel account of the life of Jesus Christ which some scholars have suggested could have been a primary source document for the Gospel of John. This theory has its basis in source criticism. Since the commentary of Rudolf Bultmann was published in 1941, the hypothesis of a semeia (sign or miracle) source has gained some acceptance."

Journeyman Pictures - Secret Sardinia (2019)

"The island of Sardinia is home to two completely different worlds. On the one side sits the villas of the super-rich, with coastal mansions valued in the hundreds of millions. Yet on the other sits Europe's largest military exercise ground, where amour piercing uranium-tipped missiles were tested by the thousand. Now, a disproportionate number of cancers and children and livestock born with hideous deformities have led to accusations of a cover up as to the extent of NATO's polluting of the island."

Negative-decadent youth cultures of the DDR

"How can you tell that the Stasi has bugged your apartment?" another joke asks. "There's a new cabinet in it and a trailer with a generator in the street."

When the Stasi turned this kind of crude but intense scrutiny to certain aspects of life, the results almost satirized themselves. Take, for instance, this circa-1985 internal guide used to identify the "types of negative decadent youth cultures in the German Democratic Republic."

Elaine Pagels - The Gnostic Gospels and the New Testament Gospel of John

"In this Price Lecture, Dr. Elaine Pagels, one of the world’s foremost scholars of religion, speaks about her groundbreaking work on the Jesus of the canonical Gospels and the Jesus one meets in the Gospel of Thomas. Dr. Pagels is the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship and the Harrington Spear Paine Professor of Religion at Princeton University. Her work on the extra-canonical writings of ancient Christianity spurred a revolution in the field of New Testament Studies and brought the exciting, urgent, and wonderful diversity of early Christianity to vivid life. This lecture was co-sponsored by Trinity & Contemplative Outreach of Boston."
