    Ch. 2 - Adrift

    Sara and Marilyn reflect on the competitive and cooperative natures of the Dwarves, the communal and conforming behaviors of the Harfoots (with one notable exception), and the illuminating observations of Celebrimbor in Episode 2 of “Rings and Rituals”. Even Amazon Ads got into the spirit of the Rite of Sigin-Tarâg!

    Preface: Beginnings

    Preface: Beginnings

    Sara and Marilyn introduce themselves and their experiences with Tolkien. They then discuss the forms and functions of ritual, and describe how they will examine each ritual in each episode of the series and what it tells viewers about the cultures of the practitioners. Finally, they demonstrate their process by applying it to four different rituals from the Legendarium.
