Useful in searching James Joyce's phrase 'chastisement of the secular arm' in A Portrait of the Artist. This phrase can be met with in a facetious sense in a review of works on Dr. Parr in Edinburgh Review (1831) but also, without the term 'chastisement' in two lives of Giordano Bruno which Joyce knew. The puzzle is to know where he first met it. The answer is, probably at school with the Jesuits in Dublin. [BS - at ricorso.net.]
