I do need to take a week off and just potter around. But I’m still hacking away at the Eusebius.
I sometimes go out to a local restaurant. I tend to find that it takes them a while to take my order, to serve each course, and so on, so I tend to take a book with me. In this case I took the print-off’s of the Eusebius volume, and a red pen, and worked through the Syriac fragments. I came back and typed them up, and then did similar changes to the Coptic and Arabic. And … somehow it’s 5 O’Clock!
Looking at the Coptic made me realise how little related these were to the rest of the fragments. I suspect that a good many of them are spurious.
I’ve passed the manuscript across to someone to advise on whether to get it professionally edited or to go straight to typesetting.
