Vote “Moses” at the Oxford Medievalist Poll

The Oxford Medievalist has a poll to determine the most influential person out of his list of ten.

The suspects:

  • William Shakespeare
  • Julius Caesar
  • St. Augustine
  • Leonardo Da Vinci
  • Moses
  • Isaac Newton
  • St. Paul
  • Aristotle
  • Winston Churchill
  • Euclid

Though Aristotle and St. Paul are tied neck and neck I really think that Moses, having set the Jews free from their slavery in Egypt and brought the Ten Commandments to them, thereby setting the ground for the rule of law that we of the European tradition enjoy to this day, is the most important of these figures.

Go and vote for Moses, or your pick, or Moses and your pick. Scroll down in the left column.
