It's nearly August and the Vendée beckons once again.
This summer's holiday reading? (Although the emphasis will be on healthy exercise after a distinctly unhealthy twelve months) - to include 'Saints, Sacrilege & Sedition' by Eamon Duffy, Robert Taft's 'The Liturgy of the Hours in East and West,' Harry Mount's 'How England made the English' and Geoffrey Soden's (1953) biography of Godfrey Goodman, the seventeenth century Bishop of Gloucester.
Normal posting will be resumed in September.
We wish everyone a restful and, above all, a quiet summer, free from "the heated atmosphere of controversy, and the ceaseless strife of tongues."
