INFORMATION OVERLOAD

I love listening to Charles Coulombe talk. I don’t know if I have a fast enough mind to read him though. I started reading Puritans Empire but two chapters in I was drowning in names, dates, and locations.

I had to stop and I’ll come back when I feel the old noggin is up for it.

Reading this book: pretty much the same boats. Lots of information, names, dates, locations… all very interesting, but I find myself disconnected with the narrative (or confusing one name for another new name that I had just come across).

I’m going to finish this book. It is interesting to read so much about various Holy Blood relics. I just wish it was more narrative driven.

I actually don't regard Charles Columbe as a reliable author. I have his book on the papacy, and it is filled with myths and questionable claims. For example, he promotes the myth of the "Papal Oath", that for more than 1000 years, every Pope took an oath against changing Church teaching until Paul VI omitted otvabs removed it from the Papal coronation ceremony. The problem with this is that there is no truth to this, the Papal Oath never existed. You can verify this claim is false just by going to YouTube. There is in fact a full video of the coronation of Leo XIII and at no point does he take an oath. The same is true of the coronation of Pius X, Benedict XV, Pius XI, Pius XII or John XXIII. You can verify this by looking up the videos on YouTube

Couldn't finish it.

I'll take it up later. Too much side info to keep with the narrative.
