Two down, one hundred forty eight to go
As of early this morning I've got Psalms 1 & 2 memorized (in the KJV, for the perfection of its English). I read somewhere recently (Leclercq?) that in late antiquity "meditatio" referred to the simple memorization and recital of texts, not that fancy-schmancy off-putting esoterica that "meditation" can mean today.
