How awful. This, in comparison, is relatively professional, but I have the impression that the translator quite frequently despaired, and wandered off for another strong coffee, forgetting about a few words in the process.

Finding this Spanglish translation of a scholarly article rather hard going. Alfonso VI "had known how to protect a la flock entrusted to him".🤷‍♂️

Who else has a particular typo that their fingers *insist* on replicating, over and over again? My mind says "Pope", my fingers, invariably, say "Pople".

Doesn't work for me in Catalina, even with Mac Extended. I need to open up the "Latin characters" page, which is also diabolically difficult to find in this OS.

"The Rise and Fall of the Party Kings" (actually about the 11th C ta'ifa realms of al-Andalus) would be an excellent title for a novel about campus life.

We need to boost more articles that have been out for a while. Just read 's excellent “The past as precedent: crusade, Reconquest and twelfth-century memories of a Christian Iberia”, in The Making of memory in the Middle Ages, ed. L. Doležalová (Leiden, 2009). 👍
