I contributed a guest post to Campion College’s To The Core blog this week, which I had never heard of prior to the invitation.
Moreover, I’ve only browsed the blog since I submitted my post, and it occurs to me that To The Core is a bit more academic than my musings here, or indeed my offering over there. (My piece is on St Thomas More, and will be published some time next week I think.)
It’s a great blog, which boasts a variety of contributors writing on a variety of subjects. I recommend it.
