David Myatt - Collected Works In Print


The following works, currently (2019) available as printed books, represent those writings of mine which may, just may in my fallible opinion, have some worth. The texts included in these published works were mostly written in 2012-2018; the exceptions being my Greek translations, some poetry, and some letters written between 2006 and 2011.

As far as I am concerned the rest of my writings, spanning some four decades, are either (i) hubriatic/tending toward hubris, or, as in the case of post-2011 material, (ii) can and should be forgotten, being only transitory scribblings.

Furthermore, all pre-2011 writings, save for (i) the translations and the poetry listed below, and some private letters written between 2002 and 2011, or (ii) included in the other works listed below, are disowned and rejected by me.

°°°

N.B. All the books are 11 inches x 8.5 inches in format, which is somewhat larger than the conventional 'trade paperback' (6 inches by 9 inches). In terms of number of pages, add 20+ pages for each book listed below for the approximate number of pages in a standard 6 inches by 9 inches paperback.

15. Tu Es Diaboli Ianua

46 pages. 2017
ISBN-13: 978-1982010935
BISAC: Philosophy / Metaphysics

Since the religion termed Christianity has, for over six centuries, been influential in respect of the ethos and spirituality of the culture of the West – often to the extent of having been described as manifesting that ethos and that spirituality – one of the metaphysical questions I have saught to answer over the past forty years is whether that religion is, given our thousands of years old human culture of pathei-mathos, a suitable presencing of the numinous. If it is not, then could that religion be reformed, by developing a Johannine Weltanschauung given that the Gospel According to John – τὸ κατὰ Ἰωάννην εὐαγγέλιον – arguably presents a somewhat different perspective on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth than the three other synoptic Gospels. Would such a reformation be a suitable presencing of the numinous, and if not, then what non-Christian alternatives – such as a paganus metaphysics – exist, and what is the foundation of such an alternative?

This essay presents my answers to such questions and thus compliments my book Classical Paganism And The Christian Ethos.
