A world of their own

Owl-eyed theologians, pale from too much time in the library, people who get pushed aside in bus queues, tell their students of 'wrestling' with theological texts.

Now a review of a history book from a history don in Cambridge:

'Experts are likely to be dissatisfied with what might seem too brief a treatment of their specialist period. But these are risks worth taking.' (BBC History magazine, June 2010, p 70.)

Raw courage, it seems--daring risk-taking, hazarding everything on a wild gamble--still thrives in Britain.
