A New Year, A New Blog

Happy New Year 2015! This blog is broadly set in the tradition of the classical prose miscellany, a genre of writing that emphasizes variety of subject matter instead of more fixed or focused themes. Hence, the writings in this blog will explore a wide variety of topics. (The title, A Various History, takes its inspiration from Claudius Aelian’s Varia Historia, written during the third century A.D.) More details on the genre of classical prose miscellany, and the precedents it offers for modern blogging, in future posts.
