My two latest papers up at

On the Division of the Arts. A Compendium of Texts.

On the Liberal Arts. A Compendium of Texts.


The first paper was occasioned by an exchange on Facebook regarding a remark by Charles De Koninck describing architecture as a fine art in a paper of his I uploaded to the Charles De Koninck Project. But is it really so? While answering this question is not the focus of my compendium, enough relevant material is cited to establish what I take to be the correct answer to the question.


First Post

As of March 15, 2013, I have begun posting to So far, my contributions have been of three kinds: original papers, transcripts of writings of others (e.g. Charles De Koninck), and scans of photocopied works. My own areas of interest are principally Aristotle’s Poetics and the Creation account in Genesis.
