Comment: RE: SHK 10.0011 Re: Psalm 46
This psalm 46 thing seems to come round with increasing frequency on
this list. As the question of its source has been raised, let me say
that it is a lot earlier than Anthony Burgess's work. Burgess himself
cited Rudyard Kipling's short story 'Proofs of Holy Writ' (which I've
never been able to find in any collection). I believe that the idea was
also put forward in a magazine in 1901. I have the citation somewhere at
home, so if anyone really wants to know, please email me off-list and
I'll dig it out.
Happy New Year to all,
