This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

This Dark Age is now available in paperback on Amazon. The print version is MUCH cleaner than this online version, which is largely unedited and has fallen by the wayside as the project has grown. If you’ve appreciated my writing, please consider leaving a review on the relevant paperback volumes. The print edition also includes new sections (Military History, War Psychology, Dogmatic Theology).

Volume 1 | Volume 2 | Volume 3| Volume 4 | Volume 5 | Volume 6

Mary as virgin earth

We glorify Thee, Creator of the world and Ruler of the universe, blessed root that has sprouted and taken its increase from Mary, the thirsting earth, and all creation has been filled with the perfume of its glorious sweetness. (Syrian liturgy)

“Hail, unplowed field that produced the divine Ear of Wheat accepted by the whole world” (Akathist Hymn)

Mary the “untilled earth, which brings forth fruit” (hymn of Adam of St. Victor)
