Making a (tiny) difference
Who said my PhD research had no effect on anything? (Actually, I think that might have been me). Thanks to me being a full blown, anorak wearing pedant and sending them an e-mail a few months back, those nice people over at medievalwriting.com(http://medievalwriting.50megs.com) have chanced their definition of a prebend by THREE WHOLE WORDS. Ah... the power!!! Now, all of you (all right, both of you) who've ever cared about a truly accurate definition of a minor element of the medieval church finally have one. Of course, I've now got to re-write the section in the PhD where I complain about the lack of such a definition.
