Tamerlane the Swede

“At the same time, the fact that I am willing to teach on historical subjects [as a minister] does not mean that I somehow think I am infallible. I have been wrong on numerous points over the years — sometimes the mistake is mine, and sometimes a source leads me astray. The point of all this is simply to say that on such subjects I am always open to correction, and moreover I am eager for it. But given the nature of the case, that correction is not likely to come from refereed journals. Rather, it will occur when someone saunters up to me after a talk and says that he never knew that Tamerlane was a Swede” (Black and Tan, p. 3).
