Cool! If you want to stack something else on top of it all, maybe Julius 
also alludes Julian the Apostate?
         I've always taken *Peace* to be about purgatory, a man (ghost in 
purgatory) reviewing the memory-house of his life and coming to grips with 
it, on his way to peace. I take it that you are saying Weer is trapped in 
the house of his life, doomed to review it forever, cycling through it but 
never completing it. I think of Marley's "These are the chains I forged in 
life." Compelling evidence.
         But what about the title of the novel? That was what has made me 
think of purgatory as the overarching concept. Is there any reason to 
believe that something like the prayers of Margaret for Weer might factor 
into a more positive destiny for Weer?
