What was Tolkien's view on miraculous events? What did he believe about the supernatural realm of our own reality?

On this episode, we explore Tolkien's Letter 89, written to his son Christopher during World War II. It's a letter that reveals Tolkien's deepest beliefs about reality and the way it truly operates. From guardian angels to the miracles of Lourdes to an uncanny experience of St. Joseph, this is a letter that will help you understand Tolkien on a far deeper level than you have before.
