The Reformation Research seminar at Princeton Theological Seminary,
taught by Prof. Jane Dempsey Douglass, is reading several sermons and
selections from commentaries by Jean Calvin in the French original. While
every seminar participant reads French adequately, no one has specialized in
sixteenth-century French. Beyond obvious orthographical and semantic shifts
(for which Robert is adequate for our modest needs), might anyone suggest a
helpful text or lexicon which would summarize or list significant French
usages and meanings in this time period? My initial searches have resulted

The imperial overstretch theory (Paul Kennedy)
Ancient Rome (after 2c. ad)

I am also looking for a good book (the more sensation the better) on
Alexander the Great's conquests.

Also, anyone interested in music either on the 4ad label or with the 4ad

I am interested in learning whether anyone out there
has a copy of the OED CD-rom 1st edition
which he/she would like to sell?
I am told that this edition is no longer available for sale
from the usual sources. The *new*, 2nd edition,
which is currently being marketted works only with windows.
Since I am blind and use adaptive equipment,
windows and other such graphics interfaces
are out of the question.
So, if anyone is upgrading and wishes to dispose of OED 1st, at a
reasonable price, plea1se contact me.
