Linkable Links and Notable Notes

* I will be in and out and not always near a computer for the next week or so; there are some things that are already scheduled to go up, but I may be slow with responding to comments and the like.

* Africa Windmill Project is fundraising to buy a minibus. You can see some of the work AWP does to help farmers in Malawi achieve food security on the AWP blog.

* Don't forget that Sarah Emsley's Mansfield Park event is ongoing.

* Rooting around, I happened to come across this handy family tree for Plato.

* Ergo is a new open-access philosophy journal.

Julia Jorati discusses one of the more interesting papers in this edition of the journal.

* Thony Christie has Galileo, the Church, and Heliocentricity: A Rough Guide

* Two interesting recent posts at "A Clerk of Oxford":
Christ the Bird and the Play of Hope: An Anglo-Saxon Ascension
St. Oda the Good: Son of a Viking, Forger of Broken Swords

* The Catechism of the Catholic Church was recently translated into Persian by Muslim scholars, as part of their study in comparative religions. Part of the significance is that, while Catholic groups have freedom to publish in Iran, they do not have freedom to publish in the Persian language; only Shi'ites can do so. So this is the only legal way in which the Catechism could possibly be published in Iran in the Persian language.

* Emily A. E. Thomas on Samuel Alexander at the SEP.

* An old article by Francis Dvornik on what counts as an ecumenical council.

* We're going to talk Phaedrus next week, and as it happens, this article is about an important part of the dialogue: the Myth of Theuth.

* Why refrigerating bread ruins it.

* Why keeping handwriting, cursive, and penmanship in schools may be important.
