Aquinas and Hawking's 'Grand Design'

Friday, September 10, 2010

It is very unusual for a hermit to found an independent state but this is what the citizens of the Most Serene Republic of San Marino hold. This European micro-state is the oldest surviving sovereign state and constitutional republic in the world with a constitution which has been in effect since 1600.
