The Week in Links (2/6-2/12)

Can anyone identify the manuscript in the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II (long may she reign) for 1988? I can't believe the caption left out the most important piece of information:

The Queen's Diamond Jubilee

And speaking of illuminated manuscripts, this is very cool! And potentially really useful! (I actually applied for a job with this project, knowing it was unlikely I would get it because they were legally bound to consider EU candidates before they could even look at the applications of non-EU candidates):

Illuminated Hebrew Manuscripts Online

A really good intellectual and academic detective story:

The Mystery of the Millionaire Metaphysicist

This seems like an exceptionally poor idea:

Medieval Hot Pants? Surely, You Joust

It aggrieves me that I contribute (willingly, for sure, but not unambivalently) to a world in which it may well be impossible to write a similar book 400 years from now:

New York Diaries: 1609-2000

Pages from New York's History
