SONG OF SONGS

Song of Songs, also known as the Song of Solomon, is one of the "writings" in the last section of the Hebrew Bible, and the fifth of the "wisdom" books of the Christian Old Testament.  Song of Songs is unique because unlike the rest of the "holy word" making reference to "law or "covenant", instead it celebrates erotic love.  Innocence is not asexual, but rather is the ability to experience life in all of it's ecstasy.  This series addresses the reconciliation and struggle within these paradoxes that define us. 

"Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave."
- Song of Solomon, 8. 6
