He loomed large in the novel by Aksyonov I read relatively recently, A Mysterious Passion. Tom Send a noteboard - 04/04/2017 03:47:45 AM

I posted the review in Russian because I didn't expect any non-Russian speakers to be interested but after Cannoli posted a bad Google translate I decided to translate the whole thing into English.

Political correctness is the pettiest form of casuistry.

ἡ δὲ κἀκ τριῶν τρυπημάτων ἐργαζομένη ἐνεκάλει τῇ φύσει, δυσφορουμένη, ὅτι δὴ μὴ καὶ τοὺς τιτθοὺς αὐτῇ εὐρύτερον ἢ νῦν εἰσι τρυπώη, ὅπως καὶ ἄλλην ἐνταῦθα μίξιν ἐπιτεχνᾶσθαι δυνατὴ εἴη. – Procopius
