St Thomas' Inspiration?
During my lunchbreak at the archives today I found a wonderful new food store and, feeling rather adventurous, bought some Dandelion and Burdock, a traditional British soft drink, for my lunch. According to Wikipedia, this drink (despite its reputed 'British-ness') is linked to a rather interesting legend:
St Thomas Aquinas, after praying for inspiration for a full night, walked from his place of prayer straight into the countryside and, "trusting in God to provide", concocted the drink from the first plants he encountered. It was this drink that aided his concentration when seeking to formulate his theological arguments that ultimately culminated in the Summa Theologica.
So if this blog suddenly becomes a work of theological genius, you'll know why...
