Need Something to Read Over Break?

If you find yourself with a very long weekend from work, or if you are a teacher and have the whole next week off, or perhaps are a college student home between semesters or just otherwise find yourself with some time on your hands, here is a synopsis of all of the Fall and early Winter articles published on the Unam Sanctam Catholicam website. It is certainly enough to keep one busy throughout the Octave! The articles on the Nephilim and Torture are particularly in-depth (i.e., long). 

Enjoy, and thank you for your continued patronage of this blog and site.

Regarding your review of the final Hobbit, I have to admit I didn't even get that far.

I saw the first installment, and lost interest. The Dwarves were either cartoons or pretty-boys-playing-tough. I couldn't go with it.

The introduction of Azog was out of bounds too. The Hobbit is such a classic book. I do not understand why it can't be fit perfectly to film.

Oh well.
