Film: Two Suns in the Sky

Post  Erodius on Thu Jul 18, 2013 6:30 pm

This is an old Greek movie from 1991. It tells the story of a Christian cleric at the time of the reign of emperor Theodosius when Christianity had only recently become the state-sponsored religion.

It explores the relationships between the state church and other religious groups, and follows the story of the cleric as he becomes obsessed with a semi-divine actor named Timotheos, and with finding the last Bacchic congregations of Thrace.

It is an absolutely stunning film; bringing to life the world of Late Antiquity.

"O Best of Gods, blest daimon crown'd with fire . . . hear, and from punishment my soul absolve, the punishment incurr'd by pristine guilt, thro' Lethe's darkness and terrene desire: and if for long-extended years I'm doom'd in these drear realms Heav'n's exile to remain, O grant me soon the necessary means to gain that good which solitude confers on souls emerging from the bitter waves of fraudful Hyle's black, impetuous flood!"
-Iulianic Hymn to Apollon-Helios, ll. 65-106

"Having come for punishment, one must be punished. One must not pull apart the god within oneself."
-Iamblichus, Vita Pythagorica

"Truth would you teach, or save a sinking land,
All hear, none aid you, and few understand."
-Alexander Pope
