Judas as the Ultimate Modern

“An extreme version of one of the basic tendencies in modern life, Judas’s total self-absorption represents the fearful consequences of making man the centre and measure of all things” [Catherine Kenney, The Remarkable Case of Dorothy L. Sayers, 2013, p. 239].

Look around for yourself. Isn’t self-absorption (often leading to outright narcissism) so marked, so representative, of the world around us?

My next essay will be on Dorothy Sayers.
