This website was set up to explore and consider work that relates to my research, especially relating to the textual culture of the Middle Ages. The weblog is the low-profile, but public part of this endeavor; other activities that both organize research and help me assimilate ever-changing technology, go on behind the scenes. Consequently, I imagine that my posting will often consider the medieval, the modern, the contemporary and how they relate to each other.
n considering a title, initially I had Walter Map’s De nugis curialum in mind. When I checked the currency of ‘nugatorius scriptor’ (using the Google), I found (from Anthony Grafton) that Joseph Scaliger used the phrase in connection with a bad edition of Joseph ben Gurion, once confused with Josephus. About this I am entirely ignorant, which is entirely suitable for a trifling writer of my sort.
My hobbies include extricating lollipops from children’s hair and related activities.
