Tolkien being a devoted Roman-Catholic. [In reply to] Can't Post

Not me. My last sentence is a bit confusing.



“A dragon is no idle fancy. Whatever may be his origins, in fact or invention, the dragon in legend is a potent creation of men’s imagination, richer in significance than his barrow is in gold.” J.R.R. Tolkien

Words of wisdom that should be remembered - both by critics, purists and anyone in between.
