This article provides a retrospective of the later-McLuhan’s dialogue with the Christian community and seeks to demonstrate how one facet of McLuhan’s enterprise was orientated towards enabling the Church to perform a media ecological role as an anti-environment in the era of ‘discarnate man [sic]’. The value of this retrospective is, primarily, historical. This case study of media ecological praxis provides a fresh perspective on McLuhan’s procedure of organizing ignorance for discovery, how he managed his dramatis personae, and offers a nuanced portrait of McLuhan as a figure who was in touch with the Church and sought the new via calculated translation, transposition and transformation of the old into the living present.
