Saint Bloch, the Unknown

So far, I have read nothing but enthusiasm for a plan to canonize Marc Bloch among France's great minds in the Panthéon. The author of Strange Defeat, Bloch seems to embody the strengths of French republicanism. A great honor due to a great thinker, I share Zid's disappointment that he is not being honored equally for his history and his contribution to medieval studies.
