Features

34 Beaky Blinders: In Search of the Plague Doctor (cover story)
The ominous figure of the plague doctor, with his long robes and bird-like mask, seems an appropriate icon for our pandemic-riven times - but what was his historical reality? Jonathan Ferguson traces the macabre medic's evolution and revival.

42 The Parallax View
A lot of people are opposed to globalisation, but would they go so far as to insist that our planet is actually pancake-shaped? Gordon Rutter wonders why the Flat Earth theory has made a comeback - and meets one of its modern proponents.

46 "Lifted Up From the Earth"
In the Gospels, Christ is transported to a 'high place' by a mysterious adversary. Bob Rickard examines an alternative life of Jesus in the context of a magical mid-air battle.
