Like many Tea With Alice episodes, this was a pleasant conversation with not much new insight; but one thing did occur to me about a day after listening to this. I have also been rereading The Birth of Western Christendom these days; and Alice Fraser’s father enthusiastically adopting Burmese Buddhism reminds me of how Peter Brown talks about the Anglo Saxon elites enthusiastically adopting imported religion (Christianity) as part of a package of exotic luxuries from abroad.
