It is in the performance that the circus is most obviously a parable of the eschaton. It is there that human beings confront the beasts of the earth and tame them. The symbol is magnified, of course, when one recollects that, biblically, the beasts generally designate the principalities: the nations, dominions, thrones, authorities, institutions, and regimes. — William Stringfellow
