St Leibowitz

This, I suspect, is mostly for scifi_mel -just that I came upon a reference to the Canticle for Leibowitz by W Miller (wikipedia entry about the book here) and that rang a bell in my rapidly rusting brain. That may have been where JMS got tat bleak idea about a distant future in B5 where monks preserve the scientific and cultural legacy of humankind, not knowing what they have but keeping it for a moment when the outside world may again be ready for it. Had read that as a young person and forgotten about it but clearly made an impression..
