To the Ingenious Reader.

You have here a blog, wherein scholars will discourse of the truths and delights of the premodern world we have lost, but just can't quit. Our scope, yes, is expansive, but we hope it will be a productive forum for premo kids of every stripe to discuss the profits and pitfalls of periodization or to take pleasure in a good old fashioned “magna farta” joke (see the seventeenth century). With these noble aims, Lady Sapientia and I, the Bitch of Armenia, humbly invoke divine inspiration:

Sing to us, Wikiope, Muse of the blogosphere,
of times and realms before our own;
O memory and incisive commentary
give unto us your blessed fruits!
