Exciting Electronic Publications

Okay, you already know that I have very. . .uh. . . catholic, that's it, catholic interests. So, you won't be surprised by what follows. This is some of the most exciting stuff I've seen in a while.

First off, a a complete translation of the Babylonian Talmud, one of the major tractates in the Talmudic literature.

The Seidenstricker Translation of The Tale of Genji by Lady Murasaki (the answer to the guess what/who of the other day). Seidenstricker is a reknowned expert on Japanese History and Civilization, having written several books on the topic.

An online translation of La Vita Nuova

Fifty essays of George Orwell, that is officially inaccessible from the United States, so you'll have to go and look for it at Australia Gutenberg. This collection includes his famous defense of P.G. Wodehouse. (You'll find the inimitable essay "Politics and the English Language" as relevant today as it was in 1947.)

Tread delicately around this one--one of the most important books in the history of recent religion, edited by R.A. Torrey, the title The Fundamentals says it all.

Some true apocryphal New Testament works along with some Anti-Catholic diatribe and some early noncanonical espistles.
