From my diary

I’ve received the modern printing of vol. 3 of Bar Hebraeus Chronicon Ecclesiasticum.  It’s OK, if a bit grainy.  But of course what we all want is PDF’s.  I will look at scanning it into PDF when I recover from my little indisposition.

But I’ve also found that Glasgow University Library has a copy of the work.  I think well of that institution, who have always been of the greatest help to me, freely loaning books through inter-library loan which no-one else would.  Some years ago, indeed, they photocopied the two volume Commentary on John by Cyril of Alexandria for me, which was a mountain of paper.  They didn’t charge very much, and of course it allowed me to get the thing online.  They deserve well, these people.

Anyway, I’ve written to ask if they would photocopy vol. 2 for me, and if so at what price.  I will, of course, create a PDF once I get it.
