The Tolkien Road – Ep. 57 – Concerning March 25th: Frodo’s Quest, the Annunciation, and the Crucifixion

Concerning March 25th: Frodo’s Quest, the Annunciation, and the Crucifixion…

Hey there fellow travelers! Welcome to The Tolkien Road, a long walk through the works and philosophy of J.R.R. Tolkien. On this special Good Friday episode, we take a moment to consider the place of March 25th, a date of major significance, in Tolkien’s works and philosophy.  We’ll see the role it plays within The Lord of the Rings, as well as how it ties the book to Tolkien’s Catholic faith. 

By the way, if you haven’t already, please leave The Tolkien Road a rating and feedback on iTunes. We’d love to know what you think of the podcast. Enjoy the show!

  1. Hey Carawells, I’m reading the appendecies, the section on Durin’s Folk. Thorin runs into Gandalf by “chance” in Bree. In this meeting they make plans to take care of Smaug and set up the events of The Hobbit to take place. An interest thing to note is that this day is also March 25th. I’d like to hear your take on this matter.
    Love the podcast

    1. Cool! We’re definitely planning on covering the appendices at some point, probably after the completion of the whole LOTR, but who knows, we may sneak certain sections in at different times.

      Great to hear from you Caleb.
