From my diary

It’s the end of a long hard week, and I can’t face any more Procopius of Gaza tonight!  So I’ve instead been downloading a few volumes of the Patrologia Graeca from Google Books to my hard disk.  It’s always helpful to have these locally, as hotel Wifi is not to be relied on when you want to work.

I’ve also taken the time to tweak my copy of Google Chrome browser, so that it downloads the PDF rather than opening it in a browser window.  Unfortunately nothing I could do would have the same effect in IE!

A message from my local library informs me that the IVP Academic translation of Eusebius of Caesarea, Commentary on Isaiah, is now sitting awaiting a visit from me.  Attending to this will probably take up much of Saturday.  Anybody who spends 6 days of his week in front of the screens is well advised to do the opposite on Sunday, and I certainly will.  So finishing off Procopius may have to wait until next week.

I’m beginning to wonder whether the finished post full of references should in fact be made into an external web page somewhere.  It’s really a bit long and unwieldy for a blog post.  But there is no need to do so yet.  I will continue to work on individual authors in individual blog posts.
