New Video: Valentin Tomberg — A Stammering

Friends, the most ambitious video I have ever attempted has now debuted on our YouTube channel:


To be very personal, the video has left me exhausted after long, long weeks of work and gallons of midnight oil. Rather than say much here, we simply paste in our YouTube copy:


This episode is for me the most important one I’ve done yet. I am stammering, because I hardly know how to do more than stammer, before immense questions to do with Valentin Tomberg, Rudolf Steiner, Catholicism, Christendom and the Fate of the West.

Topics here include:

* Valentin Tomberg

* Meditations on the Tarot

* Rudolf Steiner and Anthroposophy

* The Anthroposophical subculture and the Catholic Church

Other people or things that feature here to one extent or another: Helena P. Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Sergei O. Prokofieff, Robert Spaemann, Benedict XVI, Findhorn, George Orwell, New Age dogma and the madness of materialism.

    You are doing great work Mr. Buck. I believe Valentin Tomberg had a heart of gold. I would very much enjoy sending you an e-mail to share my appreciation and ask you a question.

    Christ’s Peace to you and Kim on this Feast of the Holy Trinity!

      Warm thanks indeed for this, Br. Charbel – which has helpfully slipped through! For I thought I had the comments switched off and mean to close them for awhile now. As I feel quite inundated right now.

      That said, I WILL send you my email and do most appreciate your kindness. I will also note I am not or not yet turning comments at YouTube – but as your question may be private rest assured I will give you an e-mail.

  • The Gentle Traditionalist Returns!

    New Book from Angelico Press!

    "The Gentle Traditionalist returns with a vengeance in this stand-alone sequel ... this book skewers the modern malaise with the kind of sanity we have come to expect from this author” — CHARLES A. COULOMBE

    ”Buck’s latest foray is a grand success ... The story features the same singular combination of whimsy and surprise, keen social commentary, and deft argumentation as the first [book]. The Gentle Traditionalist Returns appeals to what is best and deepest in us, so that we will reengage with that which ultimately matters while there is yet time.” — PETER KWASNIEWSKI

    ”A brilliant diagnosis of the spiritual malaise of modern society, written with gentleness, generosity, humour, pathos ... and, above all else, love”— MAOLSHEACHLANN Ó CEALLAIGH

    The Gentle Traditionalist


    ”Roger Buck ... in the spirit of Chesterton and Belloc ... takes on everything—from the reforms of Vatican II to the New Age ... a wonderful book.”— MICHAEL MARTIN

    ”A tale of whimsical fantasy, melancholy realism, and supernatural joy ... Buck’s deftly-reasoned post-modern apologetic for full-blooded Catholicism—a Syllabus of Errors in narrative form, a rousing hymn to ‘meaning, grace, beauty, life’.” — PETER KWASNIEWSKI

    "As brilliant a guide for the perplexed as this age is capable of producing” — CHARLES A. COULOMBE

    Cor Jesu Sacratissimum



    ”Buck goes to the heart of the problem paralyzing our broken-hearted world ... moving beyond the spirit of the age to the Spirit who moves all ages.” — JOSEPH PEARCE

    ”In this elegant feast of a book, Roger Buck ... expertly skewers the modern world ... without a drop of malice in his compassionate soul ... to reveal the bright, shining love and truth at the center of the universe—symbolised by the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and incarnate in the Catholic Church.” — CHARLES A. COULOMBE

    ”A great service to the Church ... Buck shows that the New Age is an attempt, however flawed, to escape the materialism of modernity, and that it is Catholicism in its traditional forms that can best reveal the immense reality of the suffering and love for all mankind of Christ’s Sacred Heart.”— JOSEPH SHAW
