An unmissable read...
"I was recently at an academic talk where a brief fight broke out between professors over the number of Holy Prepuces (The Greatest Genital Relic Ever Sold) littering medieval Europe–that is, how many churches claimed to have the bit of foreskin that Jesus had cut off during his circumcision.”
What better introduction could there be to Carnivaleque No XII, now up on Alun's eponymous blog.
Well there might be a better one:
"The history of all times, and of today especially teaches that ... women will be forgotten if they forget to think about themselves."
Yep, it is a special themed edition for Women's History Month, so even if you don't consider yourself a historian, or even a history reader, I reckon you'll find something of interest.
(And thanks to Alun for giving me a prominent place...)
