Knowing the board, I'm sure very few of the questions would stump anyone here.

I took this quiz on my facebook a couple of days ago :) I got 14 out of 15 questions correct - missed the very last one by citing the third, instead of first, incarnation of that movement! Whoops. ;)

It was interesting to see which categories got which questions correct!

ETA: Oh, this is the FULL version! ::takes quiz again:: .............Drat. Got TWO wrong out of 32 this time! At least I know where I need to study now!

Oops... I'll have to go back and look at this then. I thought it was the 15 one, too! That's been passing around a lot lately!

Ok, did the long form (which was more interesting, for sure). Still aced it! 32/32.

I totally bollixed up the Jewish Philosopher :-( (And I intentionally got the Jonathan Edwards one wrong again, since I'd gotten it wrong on the 15-length test!)

Just one thing to do. Have you teach me! (And apparently 95% of the rest of Americans!)

I think it's likely about
1. being married to a Jewish (albeit sometimes stridently agnostic!) man - so half my family is now Jewish
and
2. Being an English major, and having had to suffer through Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God. (Hateful piece of fire and brimstone!)

Not to mention hanging around here with such smart and knowledgeable people as you both!
