Links of Note

History Carnival Button The 13th History Carnival is up at WILLisms. It includes a debate on Diamond's Guns, Germs, and Steel, an interesting post at Paleojudaica on the rise of Messianic legends about Sabbetai Sevi, and a number of other good things. The next History Carnival, on or near the 15th of August, will appear at Philobiblon. Email Natalie Bennet at natalieben[at]journ[dot]freeserve[dot]co[dot]uk.

Carnivalesque Button The first Ancient and Medieval Carnivalesque will be held at The Cranky Professor on August 5 (or thereabouts). If you know of any good posts for that period within the past three months (on any subject within or about that period), then send your submission or nomination to professor[at]crankyprofessor[dot]com.

Additionally

* J. Mark Bertrand discusses dangerously good fiction at "The Master's Artist": "A good book, like a good God, is a dangerous thing to those who have reason to fear."

* Clark discusses literature and philosophy at "Mormon Metaphysics".

* Today is the feast of Alphonsus Liguori, founder of the Redemptorists. Just in case it comes up. Here is a sample of his work.
