Sending you good vibes and sympathy. I'm in the same position. Have not seen them since April 2019 and have no idea when I next will... so hard.

The assumptions at the beginning of this paper are clearly taken from a bad novel (with no offence to historical novel writers who clearly do more research than has been done here). This is not the fault of the works cited - it's a failure to grasp them and to define periods. 3/

For those interested in the history of the Portuguese Inquisition (1536-1820), the historian Pedro Pinto has produced a handy book/catalogue of the Portuguese archives and libraries where archival material relating it is preserved.

Reading a letter from 1494 in which the duke of Gandia is apologising for being behind with business 'due to the turbulent times of pestilence' and I think we can all relate to this.

I certainly think that we can see a 'secularized' version of the Blood Libel in the Antisemitic conspiracy theories about 'Jewish pedophilia'. Much in the same way that Nazis and others since have focused on Jewish ritual slaughter of animals for consumption.

This makes no sense if we want a decent democracy and an informed and literate electorate. If we want brilliant English, history or geography teachers, why are we making humanities courses so costly? via

Don't get why Spanish post services send parcels to most countries on earth (incl. New Zealand) but not Australia because of COVID. 🤷‍♂️

Ugh, I have not been able to get any books mailed to Australia from Spain since the start of COVID.
