Well its done. Degree number two, an MA, is finished and the dissertation handed in. On to degree number three... I will eventually get around to putting the dissertation, all about Cecco D'Ascoli, onto the web and also need to annotate my Copernicus essay so that can be linked up. I have a week before I start my PhD so perhaps that's a good time to get the web site updated. This blog is really just an aid memoir of useful websites and internet discussions but I might link it to Bede's Library so more people see it.

I just have to do an article on human dissection. A nut brain on the Sec Web has been trawling the internet and has found lots of references (including the infamous Andrew Dickson White) claiming that the Church held this back. My modern citations by modern scholars have not convinced him but has convinced me that I need to write a short article (like the one on the Flat Earth myth) to gather the quotes that blow this out of the water.
