Byte-Sized Virtue: Season 4, Episode 6 – Shame of the Uncovered
There’s something I forgot to look at last week!
If thou dost lose thine own honor, thou shalt take thine own life.
Which gets back to the last episode, and the conflation of a radical idea of personal reputation with the notion of Honor.
Of course, that’s not quite the topic I wanted to focus on this week, though I think we will come back to it toward the end of the episode.
Let’s start with the name of the dungeon that opposes Trinsic and the Virtue of Honor: Shame.
The season of Lent — the (roughly) forty days of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving that precede Easter— began on Ash Wednesday (which, this year, fell on March 1st). It will continue until Holy Thursday (April 13th), and will thereafter be followed by the Triduum (comprising Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil). The Easter season then runs for another (roughly) fifty days, ending on Pentecost (June 4th).
