‘Beauty is truth, truth beauty, óthat is all Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.’ – JOHN KEATS – Ode on a Grecian Urn

Today on The Blue Republican, Robin introduces Jeffery Tucker of Liberty.me. In what may be simply the most beautiful interview I’ve done, Jeffrey reaches out to the transcendent and the divine and discusses how his sense of Beauty led him to the Catholic faith – and what it means to him to have adopted that faith, that tradition, as his own. Some of the Church fathers might not be too comfortable with Jeffrey’s relationship with the Church… Others, of course, may find it, utterly wonderful.

Both my non-believing and my believing listeners will find this discussion of religion and religious commitment moving and unusual.We discuss the nature and place of doctrine in the Church – and the importance of Catholicism in building our material and aesthetic culture.

Come with me in this extraordinary interview on a journey with Jeffrey not into politics, where we usually go, but into metaphysics, and in the processdiscover the deepest motivations of one of the most humane and incisive figures in the liberty movement…
