Thirty years ago today, September 1, 1985, a joint expedition of American and French oceanographers discovers the wreck of the RMS Titanic in approximately 12,500 feet of water at 41.7325° N, 49.9469° W - roughly 375 miles southeast of the coast of Newfoundland.

The search - being undertaken by a towed camera sled called ‘ARGO’ - discovered an anomalous object shortly before two in the morning local time. Upon rewinding the camera footage, the object was identified as debris from a shipwreck. The expedition leader, Dr. Robert D. Ballard, was called to the control room from his sleep.

Opening a nearby copy of Walter Lord’s “A Night to Remember,” Ballard identified the object by a photograph of boilers awaiting installation on RMS Titanic in Belfast.

The next day - September 2 - Ballard and his expedition located the main hull of the Titanic, and photographed the ship for the first time since it had left Ireland.

After being lost for 73 years, some solid part of the Titanic had at last been discovered.

Lament of Evening Star by breathing2004

As told in “The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen”, Aragorn in his twentieth year met Arwen for the first time in Rivendell, where he lived under Elrond’s protection. Arwen, then over 2700 years old, had recently returned to her father’s home after living for a while with her grandmother Lady Galadriel in Lórien. Aragorn fell in love with Arwen at first sight. Some thirty years later, the two were reunited in Lórien. Arwen reciprocated Aragorn’s love, and on the mound of Cerin Amroth they committed themselves to marry one another.

After the War of the Ring, Aragorn became king of Arnor and Gondor. Arwen arrived at Minas Tirith, and they were married. 

Her few appearances in the book suggest that Arwen is a minor character in The Lord of the Rings; but she serves as inspiration and motivation for Aragorn, who, as Elrond stipulated, must become King of both Arnor and Gondor before he could wed her.

The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen relates that Arwen had a son, Eldarion, and at least two unnamed daughters by Aragorn. In F.A. 121, one year after Aragorn’s death, at the age of 2901 she gave up her life at Cerin Amroth.

Today we celebrate our Venerable Father among the Saints, Gerasimus of Cephalonia. Saint Gerasimus grew up a pious young man and travelled to Mount Argos to become a monk. He then visited the Holy Lands, where he became an attendant at the Holy Sepulchre. Here, he was ordained a deacon and priest by Patriarch Germanus of Jerusalem. For forty days, Saint Gerasimus struggled in the desert beyond the Jordan, just like his namesake Saint, and then requested a blessing to live a life of solitude on the island of Zakynthos. Having spent much time in prayer and fasting, Saint Gerasimus felt a calling to travel to the nearby island of Cephalonia where he lived in a cave. He built a women’s monastery where he lived in asceticism for thirty years. Here, he achieved the heights of spirituality, being granted the gifts of wonderworking and healing. At the age of 71, the venerable one reposed in the Lord on August 15th. Because this is the feast of the Dormition, his celebration was moved to August 16th, but is more commonly celebrated on October 20th on the uncovering of his holy relics which were found incorrupt. Our own university chaplain, Fr. Gerasimos @stgeorgerosebay bears this great ascetic’s name, and so we wish him a blessed name day.

Timeline of Clouds of Witness

One would think that this book ought to be easy to date. We’re told early on by the narrator that Lord Peter is thirty-three, which would date this story 1923. And that probably is the date it should be in, but Sayers either had not settled on his birth year yet or was consulting the wrong calendar, because every specific date in this book matches those in 1926.

This is not the last time Sayers makes a similar mistake (Whose Body? and Strong Poison suffer from this problem too), but since Clouds of Witness is only the second book of the series, we can chalk it up to Early Installment Weirdness. For chronological purposes, I consider this story to be set in 1923/24, but the dates listed below reflect the ones given in the book. The January dates are conjecture. We’re told that the trial takes place where Parliament reassembles after the Christmas vacation. I couldn’t find any exact dates for this from the 1920s, but on average the House of Lords tends to reopen on a Wednesday in mid-January.
