When I can’t think of anything to blog, I pass on links. Here are a few that have tickled my fancy lately:

  • American Orthodox History, my new favorite podcast. Matthew Namee — an independent Orthodox historian — has decided to explore the basically neglected history of Orthodoxy in the new world. (I took Thomas Howell’s otherwise excellent History of Religion in America, and I don’t recall that Orthodoxy was ever discussed, even though it has been here longer than, for example, the Southern Baptists.) Namee is still feeling his way around podcasting, but if you like history, you will enjoy it.
  • Read Uncyclopedia’s entry on Eastern Orthodoxy. You need to know a bit about Orthodoxy and Church history, but if you do it’s hilarious.
