#63—“The Battle of the Pelennor Fields”

In a chapter whose epic scope zooms in and out on various participants in this fierce battle, the Tolkien Heads are just trying to keep up. This includes working through some incredibly racist descriptions of the non-white allies of Mordor.

The lectio divina section looks at—what else?—Éowyn’s show-stopping confrontation with the Witch-King, Lord of the Nazgûl, whom we liken to a bully unused to being challenged.
