A Much Needed Respite. . .

Professor Detrius and Irwin-Amadeus II during a heated discussion of metaphysics.

With precious few hours to himself this week, the Grand Duke Irwin-Amadeus II nevertheless manages to slip away from his predatory female guests and the equally unsettling attentions of his Neapolitan tailor for an afternoon, to pay a call on his friend and teacher, the Professor Ernst Arno Detlef zum Detrius.  The latter holds the chair of Philosophy, Religion, and Metaphysics at the small University of Krankenstadt.  And while he would rather discuss loftier issues, the Grand Duke prefers revisiting his particular favorite topic each time the two meet, namely the number of angels one might fit onto the the head of a pin.
