Due to Harvard's insane semester schedule, I am currently in the midst of a paper-writing frenzy instead of a relaxing holiday break. Thus, posting has been and will continue to be light as I devote every impulse to write toward the writing that has due dates attached to it.
In the meantime, I will post some pictures of my Christmas presents. One of the best ones is this Bellarmine Jug from Pete, who very sweetly remembered my affinity for them.
I haven't had time to research the medallion, which may provide some clues. Unfortunately, it's a but difficult to search for this particular medallion on the internet, since all Bellarmine jugs feature bearded men.
