It seems that the organiser of the nuns' beauty contest is now in a little trouble: see here and here. In a way this seems a shame, as it had the potential to provide an insight into nuns' lives, works, prayers and vocations, but dressing it up as a beauty contest was just too loaded. Possibly, an idea with good intentions but not tactfully presented?

However, I've been reading about this everywhere from the Telegraph to London Lite today -how often do women's vocations to the religious life get this much attention in the newspapers?

Here is a less controversial piece about scholarly dedication and the importance of historical records: Charles Wesley's diaries deciphered.
