Actually, Milton was quite willing to burn Catholic books. Reread he end
of Areopagitica.

Comment:        Re: SHK 10.1952 Re: Burning Books

One wonders whether American U. is receiving federal or institutional
funding based, at least in part, on applications or self-descriptions
that include maintenance of the archive apparently now threatened to be
abandoned or destroyed.  If the archive was ever claimed to be a jewel
in AU's crown, perhaps there is some obligation of continued maintenance
which the affected scholars could bring to the attention of AU and its
patrons.  The thread doesn't indicate whether any such considerations of
what is and is not within the discretion of AU have been explored, nor
how long ago its intention to dispose of the church history archive was
made.   Nor is there any indication of whether the archive has any value
that another institution might wish to purchase; if so, the trustees
would hardly be free to "trash" it any more than to trash its dormitory
furniture.  More light, please, to go with the heat.

Good news. But they ought to find someone to bring the resource up to
date, too! Br. Anthony, Sogang University, Seoul

FYI,

Catholic University has graciously offered to host the continuation of
the Catholic ListServ and is communicating with the listserv owner to
transfer all information from AU.

Keep in touch with Paul Halsall, listserv owner, at
