Heidegger’s discontent with Roman civilization included an intellectual resistance to Roman Catholicism. Heidegger was the son of a Roman Catholic sexton and, like Joyce, received a Jesuit education, originally beginning with theology but ending in philosophy. According to biographer Hugo Ott, in the years before Being and Time, Heidegger felt uneasy that Aquinas’s Summa was required as the sole guide to Catholic theology (80).

Plato defines beauty with a word related to epiphany: ekphanestaton, which has been translated “that which most completely appears (Phaedrus 250d)” (Carne-Ross 251). Heidegger would later remark on this connection between poetic beauty and ekphanestaton in “The Question Concerning Technology” (1954).
