  1. The Norse myth that inspired “The Lord of the Rings” - Iseult Gillespie

    Download a free audiobook version of “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring“ and support TED-Ed’s nonprofit mission: https://www.audible.com/ted-ed

    The dwarves were master craftspeople. One dwarf, Andvari, forged marvelous creations. He often took the form of a fish and, one day, he swam to the land of the water nymphs, who guarded mounds of gold. When the nymphs laughed at his appearance, Andvari grew infuriated and seized their gold. With it, he crafted himself a special ring. Iseult Gillespie shares the Norse myth of the cursed ring.

    Lesson by Iseult Gillespie, directed by BASA.

  2. Philosopher Sir Roger Scruton | The Ring of the Nibelung - Richard Wagner| BBC Radio 4

    As Wagner’s Ring - that huge and controversial cycle of operas - goes on tour, self-professed Wagner fan, Roger Scruton, tells us why The Ring is absolutely a story for our time.

    "Despite our attempts to live without formal religion" writes Scruton, "we are no more free than people ever have been or ever will be from the religious need".

    He adds: "I have loved The Ring and learned from it for over 50 years and for me, it is quite simply the truth about our world - but the truth expressed by means of music of unquestionable authority and supreme melodic and harmonic power".

  3. The Book of Five Rings

    The Book of Five Rings was written nearly 400 years ago in Japan, and is about swordsmanship and strategy. Due to it’s subject matter it’s difficult to draw lessons and parallels to the modern world without taking quite an abstract view of the author’s meaning, however there is an underlying philosophy running through it, and it’s an important work which is still read today in Japan and a few people had requested it so I thought I’d do a recording. Listen to it with an open mind and share what you took from it in the comments below. (copyright note to YouTube manual reviewers: this is my own narration, it is not copied from audible or elsewhere, it is not "reused content")

  5. What Life Was Like As A Female Samurai

    Samurais are as iconic to Feudal Japan as Knights are to medieval Europe and Gunslingers are to Wild West. Known for their ethical code called Bushido, Samurai nobility were the pillars of Japanese civilization as they helped in maintaining peace, morality, and order on the islands.

    Samurai itself is a masculine term but it wasn’t so for the lack of female samurais. They just had a different name, Onna-bugeisha and Onna-musha, the lady warriors of Japan.

    Today Nutty History brings you the fascinating tale of lesser-known Samurai women who played an important role in shaping Japan.

  8. Japan to 1868 pt 7: The Kamakura Shogunate & Buddhism

    Following the Gempei War (1180 to 1185), the Minamoto Clan reigned nearly supreme of Japan. In order to consolidate their power, the Minamoto (with the backing of the Emperor) established a parallel government in the city of Kamakura—the Kamakura Shogunate (bakufu), a government of samurai, by samurai, for samurai. Mixed into this state was the increasing prevelance of Buddhism, which during the Kamakura Period took on sever distinct forms and came to impact Japanese Civilization heavily.
