really liked it
bookshelves: history, read-in-2012
Read from January 30 to February 11, 2012

1. No mention of nunneries and only one female patron so far, 1/3 though.
2. Uncomfortable with assertion of how v early medieval Christians used texts without much evidence given.
3. He can't really seem to work out whether he is or is not talking about the texts and what they say, or focussing exclusively on the material culture. If both, he shouldn't have denied the former early on.
