About meI am currently a Ph.D. candidate in the Medieval Studies Program at the University of Connecticut. My research interests include Old English and Old Norse languages and literature, religious history, the Bible in the Middle Ages, and medieval religious literature.

About my libraryI'm obviously a bibliophile (and an addict, for many years). My biggest and foremost task is building up my collection of texts pertaining to medieval studies--both primary works and secondary works of criticism--so that I have a worthy library for work as a professional medievalist. Academic research interests are pretty apparent from the library, as are my English major background, hobby reading, and favorite contemporary authors.


Favorite authorsAelfric of Eynsham, Dante Alighieri, Beowulf poet, Saint Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, Clive Barker, Bede, Boethius, Joseph Campbell, Geoffrey Chaucer, G. K. Chesterton, Paulo Coelho, Umberto Eco, Neil Gaiman, Saint Gregory the Great, Homer, Chip Kidd, C. S. Lewis, Jeffrey Burton Russell, Snorri Sturluson, J. R. R. Tolkien (Shared favorites)

Thanks for adding me to your "Interesting Libraries" list. I love your books!!
My work was initially on the politics of the reign of Richard II of England, and the king's use of royal patronage to create a new royalist party between 1387 and 1397. One aspect of that was his use of pardons, and that led me to a series of studies of royal pardons in that era. I have a second interest in
accusations of witchcraft against important women in tha late 14th-15th century (Alice Perrers, Joan of Navarre, Eleanor Cobham, Elizabeth Woodville) which has taken me further into the 15th century than my other research.
I have been trying to create a "worthy library for work as a professional medievalist" for about 30 years, so I appreciate your goal.
I used to know some folks at UConn when I was a graduate student at Yale, but I don;t think any of them are there now.
Hey, I have not given you an official congratulations yet. So Congratulations. Judy is great. You know that. Anyway, I am praying for the two of you regularly, knowing that prayer is the foundation of a good marriage.

Regarding other things. I have begun working on the sex chapter a little bit for "Creative Energy." I have the introduction written and the first section sketched out. I have also decided to add a section on Samson and Delilah and the pursuit of physical intimacy without mental, emotional, and spiritual intimacy. Sometime I will feel like I have written enough for your perusal.

I hope to hear from you soon. God bless!
Hey Brandon I hope all is well. You are most likely busy. Did you get my e-mail. God bless!

Some of your books look awfully familiar!
