Throne and Altar is back

If you haven’t noticed already, our own Bonald is once again posting actively (though not, thankfully, exclusively) at Throne and Altar and has burst out of the gate with a series of characteristically excellent posts. See this one for his rationale about restoring the blog. Go check it out, and if you haven’t visited before, please do avail yourself of the really excellent essays he’s posted there.

  1. Hi Proph,

    Thank you for the advertisement. I had been trying to decide whether to put up an announcement myself; given that the new Throne and Altar posts are meant to be those not appropriate for the Orthosphere (too sloppy or off-topic, or me taking a position that I wouldn’t want the rest of you tarred with), I was having trouble coming up with a justification. I’ve been composing a private email to you and several others in my head for the last couple of days, but that is now no longer necessary either.

  2. Yes!!! This is great news!

    Proph, it looks as though you’ve put up some more recent posts at your blog as well? Are the old posts still there? (I can’t find them)

    • Hi Ian,

      I haven’t posted to C:tB since the Orthosphere started, and actually I moved all my posts on C:tB to draft status around that time to keep my identity protected. I’ve been unlocking some of them recently, especially if I need to quote/cite one. If there are any you’d like unlocked feel free to e-mail me — — and I’ll open them up again.

  3. This is really great news. I started reading Throne and Altar shortly after you stopped posting there originally, which was a frustrating bit of timing.

    Personally, I’d be very interested to read an expansion of your post on neofeudalism – especially on the incorporation of the family and the rights and duties of an aristocracy.

    A little while ago I tried, by way of a thought experiment, to work out how to most closely replicate high medieval society in the modern world, and it seemed to me that finding a role for a non-agricultural, not-necessarily-military aristocracy was the hardest. Monarch, yes; commons, yes; church, yes. But aristocracy was difficult.
