Traditium & Traditian

Please pardon the dust as the Traditium, the personal blog site of Traditius, is renovated and updated.¬† The Traditian Order was formed and expanded its responsibilities faster than its membership was able to support, leaving a lot done by a few and many people who just want to be members of an organization with many who think like they do.¬† The Traditian Order will continue to be the latter, but many of its former activities and resources (the herb pages etc) will soon be relocated to Traditius’ blog page, Traditium.

That enough tradition-sounding made-up words for you ūüôā ?




A Visit To St. Leo Abbey

DSCN1650Traditium has added the page A Visit To St. Leo Abbey to the site (see under Pilgrimages, on the gray bar above).

Please feel free to check out the slideshow tour from a visit there on Pentecost of 2013.  Add links to the comments section if you know of a similar page for a location near you! (Nothing like a little e-pilgrimage every once in a while).

The Traditium Launch

We live in a time when the mainstream culture is all breadth and no depth, where empty cliches serve as grand philosophies, and where asserting something as truth is considered a hostile act.

It is the¬†intent of Traditium is to stand in the midst of all of that¬†and offer different¬†perspectives¬†on our times, our lives and the events of the day. The suffix -ium connotes many things, among them a place where¬†an activity is carried out¬†(stadium, planetarium¬†etc).¬† Here we propose to examine, with the written word,¬†tradition in the broadest sense–which seems to have no place in an age¬†where the¬†highest and most acceptable worship¬†is that of ego.¬† It is well passed time to reclaim meaning and truth.

Traditium is set to launch with the first chapter of two of JD Pierce’s novels-in-progress The Same Eye and Maya Winter¬†(see the links in the gray banner above). ¬†Also we¬†hope to¬†be getting some excerpts of Dan Stockman’s novel Brood X.¬† A columns on the culture is also posted here.¬† The Links¬†page (also on the banner)¬†points to some websites that may be of interest.¬† ¬†Comments are welcome, and perhaps a few other commentators will join us along the way.
