Things are becoming Tripartite (three interrelated pieces) 😶

I want to “freeze” the Grand Bibliography soon. I only have 249 more old emails to process (presently back to 11 January 2018). The Grand Bibliography is currently 2234 sources. Manuscript is 1291 pages.

I am also continuing to find physical and/or digital versions of some few Arthurian “source texts” that I am missing (dating up to AD 1635). I do include sources from after that date, but they are considered “nonMediæval Arthurian source texts”, or rather “non-core texts”. By the mid-1600s, true modern fiction had begun to emerge. That is why “the time of Shakespeare” (+/-) is my “cut-off” for “core texts”.

I am also going through the physical copies of all of my Arthuriana-based books and cataloguing their content based on the 30 topic areas across the sixteen volumes of the project. Those areas are Logres, Arthur, Guinevere, Perceval, Galahad, Grail, Merlin, Morgan, Mordred, Avalon, Gawain, Round Table, Knights, Lancelot, Lady of the Lake, Tristan, Isolde, Camelot, Excalibur, Cornwall, Wales, France, Angles, Saxons, Jutes, Frisians, Romans, Picts, Scots, and the Irish. 😀

Those are presently the three major “tasks-at-hand”. I feel that they are reasonable and interrelated. This project has indeed become a true Magnum Opus. 😱😁😶

Tomorrow (Monday) is another work day. So until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

In the “Saxon” subsection of the History section of The Introduction manuscript.

Currently at page 771 out of 992 pages. The term “Saxon”, for a very long time, has been a generic term that includes Angles, Saxons, Jutes, and Frisians. My main concern, in making sense of the “Saxons”, is to give accurate accounts of the Angles, Saxons, Jutes, and Frisians. The main goal in describing these groups of peoples is to place them correctly in space and time, and to accurately represent their geographies and genealogies.

As long as I make some progress everyday, the task will eventually be complete. Carry on!
