A fifth volume containing Hobbit genealogical tables and commentaries is composed and added at an unknown date by unknown hands in Westmarch. This collection of writings is collectively called the Red Book of Westmarch. Several copies, with various notes and later additions, were made.
This copy was known as the Thain's Book and "contained much that was later omitted or lost". In Gondor it underwent much annotation and correction, particularly regarding Elvish languages.
It was written by the scribe Findegil and stored at the Took residence in Great Smials. His earthly life, the mystery of His crucifixion, and His coming in glory as the King of Heaven.
In The Fellowship of the Ring, Frodo plays a central role in the formation of the Fellowship and the Ring Quest; in his innocence and goodness of character, he impresses wiser characters such as Gandalf and Elrond through what he offers as a teacher of the Christian virtues of selflessness and generosity of spirit that Jesus taught as a young man.
Moreover, he is the physical size of a young boy which is a manifestation of the innocence and naivety of the hobbits but also symbolic of adolescence. The Two Towers is then concerned with the resurrection of Gandalf, and in this book he takes on the lead in determining the course of events. In this sense, TT presents the strange events surrounding the crucifixion of Christ and the reassembling of scattered Christian forces following the chaos of his sacrifice.
Finally, in The Return of the King we are introduced to the prospect of Christ coming in glory, recognised in the figure of Aragorn. Through this reading, the motif of the journey can be reasserted as central to an understanding of the overall meaning of the books.
The journey allows us to struggle against the diabolical and move towards grace, which is depicted literally in the novels, for as Frodo journeys, he moves closer to both Mordor and to his ultimate salvation, depicted in his being stripped of the Ring and the coming of the eagles. Catholic Theologies and The Lord of the Rings.
Hitherto, the discussion of this dissertation has focused primarily on an understanding of the manifest Catholic symbolism of LOTR. In this chapter, I will set out the principles of two Catholic philosophers whose work impacted upon Tolkien and his novels. Augustinianism During the first half of the twentieth century, nature and grace became the focal point of both the Vatican and lay Catholic philosophers Mitchell, The principles of the Neo-Thomist and Augustinian schools of thought came to the fore and subsequently, Catholic intellectuals such as Tolkien were confronted with these philosophies.
Many critics have considered the association between Tolkien and Augustine, notably Charles Moorman in his work The Precincts of Felicity. The Fellowship is composed of four hobbits, a wizard, an elf, a dwarf, and two men, and in its multiracial assemblage, the Fellowship recognises the Augustinian notion of people of all backgrounds coming together for universal success.
Neo-Thomism was so branded under his rule in direct response to, what Catholics perceived to be, the woes of the Enlightenment. On September 1st, , Pius X issued Sacrorum antistitum: Tolkien would have been 18 at the time, but just a few years previous, whilst he was still under the guardianship of Father Francis, Pius X had issued the encyclicals Lamentabili and Pascendi dominici gregis against the 'faith corrupting force' of Modernism Bossert, 53 ; the Pope's stance was aggressive and uncompromising.
These formative doctrines were monumental in the effort of shaping Catholic attitudes towards modernity, not only for clerics but for lay people also. He argued thus that it is the duty of Catholics to conserve traditional modes of existence, against which he places other Christian denominations. Given Tolkien's devotion and closeness to his faith and his clerical guardian, we can be sure that these were ideas that he was not only susceptible to but also responsive towards.
The veneration of the natural world is something that I have touched upon in earlier parts of this dissertation, specifically in the contexts of Marian devotion and environmentalism. In direct contrast to the Free People of Middle Earth, whose faith remains in the supernatural facets of Middle Earth, stands the Armies of Sauron and in particular, his lieutenant Saruman.
Beware of his voice! He has a mind of metal and wheels; and he does not care for growing things, except as far as they serve him for the moment.
Saruman therefore represents not only modernity and science, but the rejection of God. Verily, the members of the Fellowship are characterised by the strength of their will and the courage of their convictions and at the end, even the elves and the dwarves enter the Fourth Age as reconciled peoples Moorman, Nevertheless, such an interpretation would be redundant without an understanding of the Catholic origins of these novels.
In this respect, I believe that the central message of hope against all odds is a wholly Catholic one. By which: Redemption is offered to us in the sense that we have been given hope, trustworthy hope, by virtue of which we can face our present: Tolkien, J.

University of Florida Press, Mystery and Manners: Having loved the volumes of The Lord of the Rings since they first appeared, Barbara Strachey long wanted fuller and more detailed maps to go with them. Though not a professional cartographer or artist, she finally decided to create them herself. Errors and Discrepancies The Journeys of Frodo often contain fine details not shown on the large-scale maps attached to the three volumes of The Lord of the Rings.
In her foreword, Barbara Strachey stated that she based her atlas on "the very clear and detailed descriptions to be found in the text of The Lord of the Rings. Tolkien , as well as the maps in the books themselves, whenever she found differences between the text and the maps she followed "the written information". On Tolkien's maps of Middle-earth in The Fellowship of the Ring ,  and the Unfinished Tales ,  , the East Road heads straight east from Bree past Weathertop which is thus north of Bree's latitude , then makes a slight bend to the north before coming to the Last Bridge.
On Strachey's Map 11, the East Road bends considerably to the south away from the Midgewater Marshes before turning north to Weathertop, which was still shown as lying south of the latitude of Bree. The Old Road, which we have left far away on our right, runs to the south of it and passes not far from its foot. Their journey to the Weather Hills is always said to be east, not bending to the south as on Strachey's map.
