Medieval Rolls at Harvard!  The Houghton Library (rare books and manuscripts) will be exhibiting many of their collection of medieval European rolls and scrolls starting May 5th.  It's free and should be an interesting, if small, exhibit (and I'm not just saying that because I worked on it). 

You'll get to see the ONLY remaining copy of "Helena and Ganymede" in scroll format.  Some scholars think it might be the original autograph copy, though I think they're crazy
February 24, 2014. "Ethnography and Academic Libraries: Assessment and Design" Nancy Fried Foster, Senior Anthropologist, Ithaka S+R Dr. Foster's talk will cover the use of ethnographic methods in qualitative assessment of library services, technologies and facilities, including origin and ...

my current place of employment is looking to hire a linux-sysadmin: short description as follows -

 We're looking for a well-rounded sysadmin to work in our team (currently 4+mgmt). Our current environment is mostly VMware, our future is mostly AWS, so we're looking for someone interested in those technologies, particularly the AWS, since that's the way we seem to be going. We're located in the Watertown Arsenal (next to the mall). I'm part of the team, so feel free to ask any questions you might have, or if you're interested.

feel free to point this to anyone you might know who is looking, or have them email me direct

To anyone who has time tomorrow afternoon and was thinking about going to their second performance, Go! See this thing before it is no more
The Ludus Danielis, or Play of Daniel, is a powerful medieval mystery play composed eight centuries ago in Beauvais, France. Under Anne Azéma's direction (music and staging), our ambitious production will combine old and new, bringing together music and movement, theater and liturgy, ...

The more I think about it, the more it seems to me that the development of contrapposto was one of the most important events in the history of art. There was already a few thousand years of stiff, static figures in art, so it was by no means inevitable that sculpted figures would become more ...

There have been several articles debunking the annual pre-Easter faux relic discovery, but few with such wisdom as "If Jesus had had this kind of money and chose to spend it on some tricked-out stemware rather than, say, food, clothing, or housing, then we really need to stop taking financial advice from this guy."
Two historians claim they’ve identified the legendary cup—a relic made of gold and precious stones. But where’d a poor carpenter get that kind of money?

Hey giant-pulsating brain at the center of the Internet, I am looking for a recipe.  Years ago there was a Thai place in Waltham that had a Panang Curry Pasta, basically Udon noodles, onions and stuff in a panang curry sauce with pine nuts.  I've been unable to find a recipe for it, the only one online is from "Tommy Tang's Modern Thai Cuisine", which is a crazy flashback to food in 1992, and uses angel-hair which is just wrong. 

So I ask you all for help!

More manuscripts!  These are primarily Byzantine, with one late Armenian in there for variety, from a recent trip to Dumbarton Oaks.
Dumbarton Oaks is a weird branch of Harvard. Based in Georgetown, Washington DC, it supports research into Byzantine art, Pre-Columbian art and landscape design with a library, funding and space for scholars and a public museum and gardens. We were there to study Byzantine art, so we didn't get ...

I loved going to the Byzantine Symposium years ago at Dumbarton Oaks. I got to meet so many of my idols there.

For those interested, some pictures from a local exhibit of late 16th century Persian manuscripts.  The captions were transcribed, where possible, from the wall-cards
