The recently reprieved Scots College in Rome, the higher education institution for brainy trainee priests (the rest go to Scotus College in Bearsden), has launched an appeal for a new library.

Rector Monsignor Christopher McElroy tells potential benefactors: "Four hundred years after the arrival of the first students, we are now focusing on the academic life of the college and the need for its secure future."

That raises the question of what they have been teaching the students during the past 399 years, but at least they don't do things quickly when constructing the priestly curriculum. Oh tempora, oh mores, as the traditionalists might put it.
