Joel posted this some time back and rewarmed it today- so since I’ve got a fever and am entitled to outrage- here’s what Joel has, and every frame is right except the last-

Book(s) Of the Week

leave a comment »

I mentioned these volumes back in the beginning of the Summer and I’ve finally made my way through them and had a bit of time to reflect on their significance.  If you go here and click the ‘Chapters’ tab you’ll have displayed the complete Table of Contents.

cover_dignitaetDie Studie untersucht anhand gedruckter und ungedruckter Werke und Materialien das historiographische Schaffen des Zürcher Reformators Heinrich Bullinger. Im Vordergrund steht die in den 1560er-Jahren entstandene handschriftliche »Reformationsgeschichte« des Zürcher Antistes, deren Entstehung, Quellengrundlage und Quellenverarbeitung im Kontext der geschichtstheologischen Voraussetzungen und methodologischen Ansprüchen, unter denen sich Bullingers historiographisches Schaffen vollzog, untersucht und vor dem Hintergrund der humanistischen und konfessionellen Geschichtsschreibung der Frühen Neuzeit historiographiegeschichtlich eingeordnet wird. Einen weiteren Aspekt bildet die Überlieferungs- und Rezeptionsgeschichte dieses für die spätere Reformationsgeschichtsschreibung fundamentalen Werkes. Neben dieser Analyse werden zahlreiche bislang unveröffentlichte Arbeitsmaterialien Bullingers historisch-kritisch ediert und detaillierte Beschreibungen der überlieferten Abschriften vorgelegt

I realize that the books are expensive.  But they are so very foundational for a good understanding of the history of the Reformation that they are seriously indispensable for any research library or researcher.  Primary sources are gloriously important and these volumes assemble them into one useful place.  These two books are the book(s) of the week.

The Falcons Can’t Count- And They Don’t Know Where London Is…

leave a comment »

This is sad.  Poor Falcons- they posted this on their twitter account and removed it only after being lambasted for their geographical ignorance (they think London is in Spain).  Plus, they can’t count (it’s two planes, not three…)  Via the Telegraph.
