Well, of yesterday: Aelred of Rievaulx, thanks to Fred Sanders of Scriptorium Daily, who seems to be attempting 365 posts in 2009 by memorializing various Christian saints and martyrs of all stripes. Go, Fred! I picked Aelred because of the appropriate timing—at the beginning of the semester we’re in Anglo-Saxon to Anglo-Norman (Aelred’s era) with the British Lit. survey course, and the Chaucer class is reviewing the history of the language, leading up to Middle English.
