 how stagings, criticisms, films, and interpretations of works over
time reflect changing perspectives on what is natural or unnatural.
 how the supernatural, especially, embodies views on what is
natural or unnatural, what is the proper order of creation.
 how do Gods, (Christian and PreChristian), wise/holy men and
women, mages, visions and visionaries, demons, witches, and fairies
