The Iconic School

Church schools need to stand up to the crisis of relativism that is devastating teenagers' lives.

School chaplain Fr Thomas Plant exposes the crypto-curriculum that lies beneath the post-truth skills agenda of modern educationalists. Tracing the intellectual genealogy of modern relativism, he calls for a return to an older and richer, iconic understanding of reality in terms of transcendent beauty, goodness and truth.

About Me

It took me a quarter of a century to become an Anglican. Brought up without much religion, I defaulted to atheism. It was practising Aikido and meeting Buddhists when I lived in Japan that set me on the path towards baptism.

I have been a parish priest in Berkhamsted and Camden Town, university theology lecturer, school chaplain, Latin teacher and Army reservist. A classicist turned theologian, I read for my PhD at Selwyn College, Cambridge University, studying comparative Christian and Japanese Buddhist thought.

I moonlight as an Aikido instructor and as Thomas Idoine, writer of Lovecraftian cosmic horror fiction.
