I’ve now listened to my lectures and thought the whole thing over. I must confess that I felt a bit insecure after giving them, for I had so much to say and, in order to make it fit, got off my notes fairly frequently. After listening, I think the lectures came off well, but I did notice a number of places where I misspoke. Again, I had all the info in my notes, but I did not always use these notes, which is, I guess, just how it goes.
Here are the mistake that I have found:
1. In my first lecture, I refer to a “William of Greenwich” as a critic of Geoffrey of Monmouth. This should be William of Norwich.
2. In my second lecture, I say that Henry of Navarre was killed by a Jesuit because he was suspected of retaining Catholic sympathies. Obviously, I meant to say that he was suspected of still holding Protestant sympathies.
3. In my third lecture, I briefly reference the Prussian Union, saying that it was a plan of “Kaiser Wilhelm.” I should have said King Frederich Wilhelm, as I meant Frederick William III of Prussia, not one of the later German “kaisers.”
These could probably have been understood by some people anyway, because of their context, but I wanted to at least acknowledge the mistakes.
