En First Things

  1. Entre los comentarios a la entrada de First Things, éste no es desdeñable:
    You probably already know this one, a 9th century joke by theologian John Scotus Eriugina to King Charles the Bald: "William of Malmesbury's amusing story illustrates both the character of Eriugena and the position he occupied at the French court. The king having asked, Quid distat inter sottum et Scottum? (what separates a sot (drunkard) from an Irishman?) Eriugena replied, Mensa tantum (Only a table)."
