  1. Re: Was Tolkein's Middle Earth stuck in a technological rut for thousands of years, with basically 15th-century tech remaining constant?

    Monumental architecture aside (which was achieved on a smaller scale in actual medieval society, such as with England's Lincoln Cathedral that finally stood taller than the ancient Egyptian Pyramids...
  2. Re: Was Tolkein's Middle Earth stuck in a technological rut for thousands of years, with basically 15th-century tech remaining constant?

  3. Medieval Christian theories about the precise location of Heaven on or above the Earth

  7. Re: Do you think Roman Republic could be saved?
