QuotationNow I have a little idea for something to print. It is a beatiful prayer of Cassiodorus at the end of his De Anima. Perhaps by the 7th I will have a rough translation finished for you to see. And of course I would write a little introduction. In all, it would probably be almost the same length as Hagia Sophia. In fact I am thinking of doing more work on Cassiodorus. I have been reading a lot of his worik. I wonder if Carlyn has in the library the critical edition of Cassiodorus's "Instituta" (done by R.A.B. Mynors, Oxford 1937). Or if she has anything else on him. All I have is Migne and a couple of Catholic journals that have some articles on him.
