And non-detective books by Ellis Peters under her real name of Edith Pargeter.
I think I agree about Parris - name dropping all over the place. I'm just about to reread the first and then catch up, though. The monk is Giordano Bruno, who was, in real life, an absolute idiot to go back to Italy, where he was burned in the Campi di Fiori - hinted at at the beginning of the first book.
He was, I think, the first to sensibly propose the existence of habitable planets around other stars. Not much science in the books, though.
