Class began as scheduled at 9:30am in Morrill Hall, Room 202. Twenty-one students were listed on the class roster, unchanged since last class meeting. Sixteen attended, with one of the absent students accounted for via previous contact.
Discussion noted the problem in the calendar of Dionysius Exiguus before moving into the Germanic heroic ethos and its interaction with Dream of the Rood. Speculum was recommended as a resource for students seeking to work on projects treating the medieval.
Attendance was taken via informal writing. Students are exhorted to continue reading--Beowulf is the text assigned for next week--and to be diligently at work on standing projects.
