    I've been enjoying reading through Pilgrim's Progress and listening to Derek Thomas' lectures on the book and its puritan background. In the episode on Vanity Fait (approx. 23 mins in) he theorises how the two chained lions Christian encounters on his way to Palace Beautiful represents the state and the national church which Christian, as a 17th century non-conformist, had to face. However for Faithful the lions did not threaten him which, if the symbolism of the lions are correct, would make him an Anglican Christian. Interesting theory which might be of interest to some here

    Thankyou for the info, I have been thinking of revisiting Pilgrim's Progress and it would be interesting to hear Mr Thomas' take on it.
