    Actually I think you’ll find it’s a Wolf or a Calf depending which you choose (lion or Lamb) – see Isaiah 11:6-8 :-0

    The lion shall lie down with the calf… but the calf won’t get much sleep. (A quotation from I know not whom).

  5. jonbirch says:

    indeed miriworm. anyone know where the lion and lamb ‘tradition’ comes from?

  6. Miriworm says:

    Always thought it odd that Lions will eat straw though! Isaiah 65:25 :-)

    One of my favourite quotes from G. K. Chesterton (Orthodoxy, Chapter 6):

    It is constantly assured, especially in our Tolstoyan tendencies, that when the lion lies down with the lamb the lion becomes lamb-like. But that is brutal annexation and imperialism on the part of the lamb. That is simply the lamb absorbing the lion instead of the lion eating the lamb. The real problem is — Can the lion lie down with the lamb and still retain his royal ferocity? That is the problem the Church attempted; that is the miracle she achieved.


    BTW: I really love your work. Thank you.

    The quotation ‘The lion shall lie down with the lamb, but the lamb won’t get much sleep.’, which is one of my favourites, is either by Martin Luther or Woody Allen and I can never remember which because the other one said something similar. I’m going for Woody Allen though.

    ‘The Lion and Lamb’ comes from the pub of that name, I believe. Or is it ‘The Lamb and Lion’?

    Well, during mealtime lions do tend to lie down and settle into eating…

    As for the church, just as it has made royal lions lie down with lambs, it has indeed taken lambs and turned them into things as ferocious as lions.

    Responsibilities and miracles come with each role I guess, the eater and the eaten…
