Welcome to my largely inactive blog. I infrequently post here about matters of largely historical and theological interest, the latter of which is a hobby that I have far less outlet for than I would like, but you will also find some popular historical pieces that I have written. I have an M.A. in Religion, with an emphasis in Ethics and Philosophy from Florida State University; as an undergraduate at the University of Florida, I earned a B.A. in Religion and a B.S. in Psychology. In spring, 2012, I completed an M.A. in British History at the University of Kansas, where I am now pursuing a Ph.D. in the same. I focus primarily on religious and political thought; my dissertation will study later interpretations of the Reformation (the technical term for this is historiography) in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. I also have a strong interest in political theory and political theology during the same time period, not least with the ways that the English/Anglican monarchy utilized medieval devotional practices up through the eighteenth century.
I also love music of many varieties. Music is metaphysics par excellence as far as I am concerned, and at some point I hope to trace here the outlines of my basic conviction that music, as sound, is an articulation of the logos. I am a regular contributor to The Living Church, the oldest magazine in the Episcopal Church (USA) (some of my Living Church articles are also cross-posted here), and I am a member of The Fellowship of St. Alban and St. Sergius and The Society of King Charles the Martyr.
