Strange Religion

Strange Religion

by

Join two vagrant scholars of religion as they discuss religious oddities across the world and throughout time. Tune in each Tuesday, the least holy and most boring day of the week, for new episodes of Season One, which examines the theme of “Bodies, Blood, and Cloth.” No religion is too old, too sacred, or too “normal” to escape our eye. Like and follow us on Facebook and Twitter and visit us at keepreligionstrange.com. Behold the ritual, behold the rite, come now behold our strange religion.

Our first Christmas episode is about the absolute worst of Santa’s companions: Black Pete. Yes, worse even than a child-devouring demon like Krampus is the attempt at black-face that some residents of the Low Countries still attempt every year during their Saint Nicholas Day celebrations. Join us as we discuss Santa’s helpers and the origins of Zwarte Piet.
