not marginalia, BUT...

A curiosity hangs by the thigh of a man, under its master’s cloak. It is pierced through in the front; it is stiff and hard and it has a good standing-place. When the man pulls up his own robe above his knee, he means to poke with the head of his hanging thing that familiar hole of matching length which he has often filled before.

If people are actually interesting in looking into some medieval scholarship I highly recommend the work of Bruce Holsinger: http://www.engl.virginia.edu/people/bh9n

This stuff is about mediaeval academic philosophy and especially logic, but there's some really interesting stuff in there. Also this is the best title of any paper ever.

The Pursuit of the Millennium: Revolutionary Millenarians and Mystical Anarchists of the Middle Ages

The end of the millennium has always held the world in fear of earthquakes, plague, and the catastrophic destruction of the world. At the dawn of the 21st millennium the world is still experiencing these anxieties, as seen by the onslaught of fantasies of renewal, doomsday predictions, and New Age prophecies. This fascinating book explores the millenarianism that flourished in western Europe between the eleventh and sixteenth centuries. Covering the full range of revolutionary and anarchic sects and movements in medieval Europe, Cohn demonstrates how prophecies of a final struggle between the hosts of Christ and Antichrist melded with the rootless poor's desire to improve their own material conditions, resulting in a flourishing of millenarian fantasies. The only overall study of medieval millenarian movements, The Pursuit of the Millennium offers an excellent interpretation of how, again and again, in situations of anxiety and unrest, traditional beliefs come to serve as vehicles for social aspirations and animosities.

Definitely into that Norman Cohn book. Anyone with interest in medieval things, womyn's rights, Marxism, or witchcraft will love this one:

To name my source, and hopefully provide some cool reading material to any of you true nerds out there ... check this dude's blog out: http://www.alchemywebsite.com/paintings/artweblog.html

Adam McLean is one of the few recognised experts on hermetic, emblematic and alchemical symbolism. ... In March 2008 he decided to create this occasional weblog dealing with his artistic interests and research, his ongoing projects, his enthusiasms for traditional emblematic allegorical works and criticisms of some of the more risible aspects of modern art.


There can be some nonsense to sift through, but there are some cool entries.

yeah i'll order that.

reading this now

which i guess would've been a good place to start reading about how medieval europeans thought. when you're not formally affiliated with a university it's frustrating trying to figure out what the good books are.

Where does one find this material? Do you have to be a medieval scholar, or just really good at tumblr? Asking for a friend.
