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."
