The Bending book looks marvellous (and potentially hugely useful for my PhD, which I'm planning on starting next year). That's one more thing added to my Christmas list!


Wow. He actually mentioned the telegraph as a result of Protestantism? I have a friend writing a dissertation on the telegraph, I'll have to tell her.

On a related note, have you ever come across religious texts that comment on (positively or negatively) the invention of photography? Or spirit photography?

Mr Punch

You don't get a whole lot more protestant than Samuel F.B. Morse (unless it's his father Jedidiah).

Mr Punch

Of course the British didn't use Morse's version. Don't know offhand religious views of Cooke and Wheatstone.
