I just told one of my students, a medieval enthusiast, that Milton wore a sword
when he was sighted, and knew how to use it.  Of course, he wanted to know what
kind.  He assumes a rapier.  Does anyone know?

(I realize that John Shawcross will once again point out that I haven't read
something he's written, but keeping up with John's publication is a full-time
job in itself.)
