  • Christian Martyrdom - 4/25/2017

    Persecution and martyrdom are inseparable from Eastern Christian experience—first under the Muslim conquerors, starting in the middle ages and continuing in many parts of the world to this day, and then, in the twentieth century, under Communism.

  • Is Macron the EU's Last Best Hope? - 4/25/2017

  • Dwight Macdonald - 4/17/2017

    A Rebel in Defense of Tradition is the title of Michael Wreszin's 1994 biography of Dwight Macdonald (1906-1982). It is a very good title, by which I mean something more than a "handle"; it is a precise phrase, a summary properly affixed to the memory of an extraordinary man.

  • Will Christianity Perish in Its Birthplace? - 4/14/2017
