Scotland’s own Adrian Murdoch has posted a PDF of an excellent, short article he wrote on Romulus Augustulus, the last Roman emperor. The article summarizes Adrian’s recent book, The Last Roman: Romulus Augustulus and the Decline of the West. It’s so good it will leave you wanting to read the book. And I hope you do act on the impulse, even if it is Lent. Romulus is the subject of a soon-to-be-released movie, “The Last Legion,” with Ben Kingsley, among others. I’m publishing a longish review of Adrian’s books in an upcoming edition of Touchstone magazine, where I review patristic titles almost every month. Adrian has also been posting much on St. John Chrysostom of late.

We all owe a great debt of gratitude to Scotland, Adrian — for you, of course, but also for Nessie and for one of my children’s favorite CDs.
