Vicar of Dibley to be made a bishop? from Episcopal Cafe
The one-off special, which has been filmed this weekend in central London locations and is named The Bishop of Dibley, will see Dawn reprise the role of Geraldine Granger.

Make-Up and Medicine in the Middle Ages from Medievalists.net
It’s easy to differentiate between cosmetic and medical procedures in the present day but if we take a look back at the Middle Ages, the distinction wasn’t always so clear. Thanks to several prominent medical writers, we can get a glimpse of how medieval medicine viewed the use of cosmetics, and how some of these products were used.
