two definitions of culture by T.S. Elliot

Culture is "the incarnation of the religion of a people" -T.S. Elliot
quoted in  (p. 93) a great book by Virginia Stem Owens: "The Total Image: Selling Jesus in the Modern Age," which may be thirty five years old, but is as relevant as ever (no small task for a book with focus on the media!)

"Culture may even be described as  that which makes life living" -T.S. Elliot  quoted in Owens, p. 86
