“Since Jesus had told Peter to put down his sword in the Garden of Gethsemane (John 18:11), the Circumcellions piously avoided bladed weapons and instead opted for the use of blunt clubs, which they called “Israelites.” Using their “Israelites”, the Circumcellions would attack random travelers on the road, while shouting “Laudate Deum!” (“Praise God!” in Latin.) The object of these random beatings was the death of the intrepid martyr, who hoped that hitting someone over the head with the club would provoke the victim to attack and kill them.”

Incidentally, I agree with absolutely everything said on this channel.
This was the exam we took yesterday. Posted because I’m always slightly amused by how stern the rubric is: not just any disadvantage! a grave one. and don’t forget, irrelevance will be penalised…
Finals are approaching. I’ve been preparing for these by lying in bed all day avoiding sunlight and loud noises. I wish I were kidding. Hopefully I’m recovering now and I’ll be okay for Wednesday, but the timing’s been awful. I was pretty distraught yesterday when I couldn’t read a few lines without getting a headache.
Oh well, making headway today! 200 lines of Virgil left, then George has also offered to cook me dinner if I can manage the walk across college. sweet boy. And yes, he’s not bad for a ginger.
