Beard Theology, by The Church Mouse
Bear Theology, A History of Hairy Faces, told by The Church Mouse and illustrated by Dave Walker, explores the way beliefs turn to rules.
These days facial hair (or the lack of it) comes down to personal preference, but in the past the possession of a beard - and the right kind of beard- has been, if not quite a matter of life and death, at least a matter of spiritual life or death. This fascinating fable reveals why people argued about beards, taxed them, banned them and fought over them on ideological and theological grounds.
