One of the biggest lies we're told is that celebrating our ancestral past is stupid, dishonest, or worse. None of that is true. "Beowulf," the Anglo-Saxon masterpiece about England's Germanic forefathers, is a sophisticated tale full of weirdness, complexity, and melancholy--plus, it's an awesome romp with lots of crazy monsters and sick fights. In this episode of "Young Heretics," Spencer Klavan uncovers the poem's greatness.

If you really want to talk pandemics, then let's talk Julian of Norwich. She lived in religious seclusion, but she understood deeply that there are no guarantees in life--no safety other than in God. In this episode of "Young Heretics," Spencer Klavan talks through the weird, intense, and powerful visions of Julian and what they say about God and womanhood.

"Gone with the Wind" is the movie they don't want you to see. Following HBO pulling it from streaming services and then putting it back up with a ridiculous health warning, Spencer Klavan insists on rewatching it. In this episode of "Young Heretics" Klavan proves why the movie is not just a masterwork, but a triumph of American culture in the best traditions of Western art, and a tragedy in the true sense of the word.

Francesco Petrarca, commonly known as Petrarch, lived at the dawning of a new age. He's credited with helping to revive classical learning when it went dormant, which makes him an excellent guide for our own day. In this episode of "Young Heretics," Spencer Klavan reads Petrarch's poems and contemplates how to revitalize the wisdom of the past--not through nostalgia, but through rebirth.

How do you acknowledge the wild forces of the world without letting them destroy you? Euripides, the youngest Greek tragedian whose work survives, asked exactly this question in his radical, boundary-pushing play "The Bacchae." In this episode of Young Heretics, Spencer Klavan explores how, with the clarity of an artist's vision, Euripides saw the downfall of Athens coming and spoke wisely into the heart of his moment—and our own.

The Peloponnesian War was one of the most catastrophic conflicts of the ancient world--protracted, brutal, and disastrous for the Athenian hegemony that had grown over the course of the early 5th century BC.

T.S. Eliot's God was no mere fantasy or abstraction: he was a tough, strange, sorrowful savior presiding over a world gone terribly wrong. In this episode of "Young Heretics," Spencer Klavan concludes his series on Eliot by walking through the passages in "Four Quartets" which outline the trinity to reveal what God looks like in the modern world.

As cancel culture is on the rise, freedom of speech is all over the news. Why do we even believe in freedom of speech in the first place? Take a look at John Milton, the revolutionary firebrand whose writing nearly cost him his life. In this episode of "Young Heretics," Spencer Klavan explores the connections between Milton's views on speech, sin, and revolution in "Areopagitica."

T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land is known as one of the most depressing poems ever. Eliot refuses to offer any BS or happy talk: his spare, cold look at the woes of modernity can help us understand where hope lives when everything else goes dark. In this episode of Young Heretics, Spencer Klavan argues that this work also contains the seeds of Eliot's eventual conversion to Christianity and hope for us in our own depressing age.

Was C.S. Lewis the 20th century's greatest thinker? Lewis was a war veteran, the unofficial pastor of the West in its darkest hour, and a supremely gifted philosopher with a masterfully light touch. In this episode of Young Heretics, Spencer Klavan takes the audience through a close look at Lewis's The Abolition of Man to prove that those who dismiss Lewis as "just the Narnia guy" are just plain wrong.

The Prophecy of Isaiah is so much more than the excerpts you hear at Christmas. It's a story of war and politics, of defiance in the face of utter despair, and of faith when everything you believed in--even the city of God--comes crumbling to the ground. In this episode of Young Heretics, Spencer Klavan tells the story of this enigmatic genius from the 8th century BC.

It all starts with Homer: the man, the myth, the musician. Spencer Klavan walks through the glorious tale of valor, tragedy, and heroism known as the Iliad, reading aloud from the rhythms of the original Greek and recounting this ancient tale of the war for the most beautiful woman in the world.
