Through a Glass Darkly
























































































































We see. But we do not see.










post scriptum

I debated whether or not to include any explanatory notes. My best instincts were not to - but you can be the judge.

I must apologize to those who may find it disconcerting that the safety net of captions is largely absent on this page. My feeling was that the main title was strong enough to carry the weight.

I first encountered the phrase "Through a glass, darkly" when studying Ingmar Bergman's films. In fact, one of his films bears that name.

It's origin can be traced to Corinthians (1 Corinthians 13:12). It signifies that humans understand, but they do not truly understand.
