About meLiving in Amsterdam, reading history books. I've been a novel reader all my life, but recently i picked up the urge to overview world history. Trying hard now, but moving slowly. I've skipped Chinese, Indian and Mesopotamian beginnings, to start out with ancient Greece and Rome, moving on to European prehistory, early christianity, late antiquity and early middle ages. At the moment i'm watching Philip Daileader's lectures on the high middle ages. And i've delved back in time to Elaine Pagels' The gnostic gospels.

Tot voor kort las ik vooral romans, maar nu heb ik het plan opgevat om thuis te raken in de wereldgeschiedenis. De uitvoering van dat plan schiet maar heel langzaam op. De oude geschiedenis van China, India en Mesopotamiƫ heb ik tot nog toe gewoon overgeslagen. Wel gehad: Europese prehistorie, oude Griekenland en Rome, vroege christendom, Late oudheid, vroege middeleeuwen. Nu beland in de hoge middeleeuwen, en ondertussen nog bezig met de tweede eeuw (Elaine Pagels, The Gnostic Gospels).

About my libraryMost of these books i own in epub or pdf versions.
