I should like to take this opportunity to introduce the ONLINE MODERN HISTORY
REVIEW (ISSN HISTORY REVIEW (ISSN 1181-1151).

The OMHR was created in 1992 and is distributed in a 'true' online form on
Internet. It is designed to satisfy the needs of the modern scholar who
wants convenient and immediate access to the latest historical research.

If you have an UNIX account at your university you can access the Review via
Internet with either of the following commands:

telnet freenet.victoria.bc.ca or telnet 134.87.16.100

Non-Internet users can access the review by dialing (604) 595-2300. Set
your communications parameters to 2400 baud, 8N1, VT100. Suitable
communications programs are Geocomm, Procomm Plus, Windows Terminal,
Macterminal, Crosstalk, etc.

Login as a guest. If you wish to use all of the features of the system
(participate in forums, post messages, etc.) you must create an account

Modern History Review. The system is entirely menu-driven and very easy to
use.

The Editors welcome scholarly articles on any historical subject (European,
Asian, North and South American, African, etc.). Our reviewers consider
the following questions when assessing manuscripts:

5. Is the writer aware of the current research on the
subject?

6. Is the manuscript well organized and logical?

7. Is the writer conscious of his audience?

Sample text:+1+

By canon law the crucial ingredient for a legitimate
marriage was the exchange of immediate, present consent
to marry (<verba de presenti>). Mere words of betrothal
-- the promise to marry, that is, to consent in the
future (<verba de futuro>) -- did not make a marriage,
though some canonists held that <verba de futuro>
followed by sexual intercourse (as consummation) amounted
to valid marriage. The ring was also important.
According to the Franciscan preacher, Bernardino da Siena
(1380-1444), a promise of marriage that was accompanied
by a ring and consummated constituted an indissoluble
marriage.+33+

Chicago Readings in Western Civilization>, vol. 5, <The Renaissance>, ed.
