Clearly, I'm still in training

One sure sign my studying for orals should be stepped up. Only 52% correct! Still, given that I focus rather early, not a bad showing.

Thanks to the one and only Geoffrey Chaucer for his addition to the procrastidrivium. Be sure to check out the post, too -- best rendition of the seven liberal arts ever.

Woohoo! 57% even though it was mostly "post-period"...

I dare not take the quiz for fear it will demonstrate my utter lack of medieval credentials.

Derek: Well done! That was some obscure medieval trivia.

JJC: I feel like there's a potentially interesting debate in there though, regardless of score -- what is the result of the auctor himself choosing what constitutes knowledge of medieval trivia?

More importantly, what qualifications does Chaucer have for claiming it's trivial?

I think I've been reading too much of Isidore's Etymologies...

I am not ashamed to admit that I scored a very low 31%. And some of the ones I got right I was wildly guessing. Finally, it is confirmed: I am not well-versed in late medieval trivia. I can now sleep at night.
