* Visual Midrash: Jewish and Jewish-influenced painting, mosaic, and sculpture throughout the ages. There was a time not long ago when people regularly claimed that the Jewish religion had no art, especially two thousand years ago; but archeological finds have increasingly discovered that synagogues were sometimes elaborately decorated. Perhaps the most famous such find was the Dura-Europos synagogue.

* Frank Weathers discusses George Santayana's almost-Catholicism.

* Caroline Farrow on the difficulties of being a Catholic woman online.

* An interesting post on translation at "NewAPPS".

* Juan Gomez discusses eighteenth-century Scottish philosopher George Turnbull.
