Early Church History: read, marked, and inwardly digested---BY INSECTS! Well, actually, BY INSECT LARVAE!
One of the dangers of a home library here in the Tropics is the problem of ravening insects. This morning, in preparation for spending my day-off writing about St. Ephrem of Edessa, I discovered that nasty, nasty termites (known here in Panama as wood ants) have devoured my copy of Saints And Sinners In The Early Church: Differing And Conflicting Traditions In The First Six Centuries by W.H.C. Frend. While I was not going to use this book in my research, I am very sad to have lost it as it's a great book! And now I've got to take every book off every shelf in every bookcase to look for more of the nasty, nasty tings.
I See You!
