I spent the whole afternoon reading Augustine of Hippo's commentaries on the Gospel of John for a paper I am writing....which isn't even on Augustine but I figured that this should be a must reading for one whose research project is on 17th century England. And you know what? I found them really interesting: powerful rhetoric and amazing imagery. Also I believe I realized even more how much Donne's own homiletics owes to the man's writings.

....And what better setting for all this reading than my uni, which is located in a deconsecrated augustinian monastery dating back to the XI century. Historians say that Luther spent a night here...for all I know, the office in which I have spent countless afternoons working on my stuff could have been his bedroom! :-D

Ok, time for...a tree pic! <3
