The Abbey Library St Gall: Welcome to one of the world's most significant historical libraries
[Wiki Entry]

*****

Good morning to you all from the stately Dungeon of Discord. Welcome once again to the classy and luxurious Sunday Morning Book Thread, the plushly appointed mosh pit of opinion, snark, choler, jest and japery, and our continuing conversation on books, reading, writing, and spending too much money on more books. Unlike that uptight square OregonMuse, I don't impose harsh moral strictures or expect my readers to obey outmoded notions of decency. If you want to read Chaucer skyclad, or bone up on Boethius lounging in a silk shorty robe, who am I to judge? Nor will I judge you for wearing pants. Even if it's these pants, which probably cause serious chafing.

In These Troubling Times(tm), it feels like civilization is under seige by Vandals and Visigoths. You're filled with righteous rage and want to hurl rocks at the scum! So let's release that tension (get it?) by perusing some of the practical tomes in William Gurstelle's collection on backyard ballistics and DIY destruction, which offer both history lessons and tongue-in-cheek plans for dishing it out and taking it.


The great books of the middle ages

Wee twee manuscripts:

Teeny-tiny medieval books

Full-body electrolysis is a long, tedious, and painful process, so let's give OregonMuse the space and privacy he needs. In the meantime, send input, output, cockalorum, fanfaronade, bombast, braggadocio, huzzahs, and raspberries to me at ErisEnthroned@protonmail.com
