The Owl of Minerva

Our new history books ask big questions; discuss Lucretia Borgia's son's ceiling decorators, valet and doctor, the master of his wardrobe, and his stable boys; look at Hitler's death; detail the 1453 holy war for Constantinople; look at Attila's invitation to Rome by Emperor Valentinian's sister Honoria (he's not someone I'd invite); and much more.
