When many years ago we first came across sirbacon.org we were simply astonished and amazed at the sheer weight of material on the site covering an enormous range of articles and books relating to Francis Bacon and Shakespeare-it was like arriving in a Baconian heaven. To have access to all this material (much of it very rare and inaccessible) gathered together in a single repository represents an unrivalled and incomparable gift to Baconian scholarship and anyone interested in the life and writings of Francis Bacon. For us it was always the first port of call for all things Baconian. All of the Baconian world owes an enormous debt and everlasting gratitude to its founder Lawrence Gerald not only for founding sirbacon.org but also for his unstinting love, enthusiasm and support for us fellow Baconian travellers.
This year 2022 saw the inauguration of the B’Hive forum on sirbacon.org with fellow sirbacon.org companion Rob Fowler at the Baconian helm which provides a public platform for interaction and discussion on all aspects relating to Baconian-Shakespearean scholarship. The B’Hive forum has the added benefit of encouraging and generating new and brilliant discoveries and new areas of research which is evidenced on an almost daily basis from the efforts of its remarkable and innovative contributors. The B’Hive forum is a wonderful ground-breaking innovation to the sirbacon.org website and a platform for the Baconian community which reaches out to the four corners of the globe.
Thanks to Lawrence and Rob, sirbacon.org, the greatest Baconian-Shakespearean website in the world, will shine a light in perpetuity. Lord Bacon would be very proud of what you have achieved for the benefit of lovers of truth all around the world.
Happy 25th Birthday with eternal Love and Thanks!
