Saint Rowan


Andrei Rublev is one of Rowan Williams’ favourite films. Not too surprising – it’s about God and it’s “intellectual”, as is the archbishop. Does he also identify with Tarkovsky‘s magnificently narcissistic self-portrait of the artist as a spiritually refined, disastrously unworldly pilgrim through life, ineffectual in his time but redeemed by his own helpless sincerity and the adulation of posterity? When I’ve read the interview I’ll let you know. Thanks to infinite thought for the tip.
