Can’t blog anything substantial till the weekend (this thesis business really gets in the way of blogging), so for now I will let you in on another one of my secrets. I’m sure that some of διαθήκη’s readers will appreciate Scholasticon, a website at the Université Libre de Bruxelles. This proved invaluable in tracking down a reference last year. The ‘Nomenclator’ page will give you a list of hundreds of (mostly) Catholic scholastics of the early modern period. Some of the entries are brief, some more extensive. The 700+ item bibliography for Suarez looks a bit intimidating. Some surprising omissions too, but no doubt this is an ongoing project. Useful site. Bookmark it for future reference.

Meanwhile, over at the Vatican…Benedict XVI grants a new plenary indulgence for pilgrimages to Lourdes on its 150th anniversary. Read more here.
