Christ-centered, Reformed, Presbyterian, Calvinist-but-not-too-Calvinist; frequently liberal. I like to think of myself as ecumenically minded but am secretly suspicious of my own bias. I enjoy libraries and the books inside them. Also medieval history (esp. medieval reception of Biblical, classical and patristic sources, and the ways that their interpretations have persisted or been rejected).

My profile image is a raven from the Aberdeen Bestiary. Corvus in divina pagina diversis modis accipitur, ut per corvum aliquando predicatorum, aliquando peccatorum, aliquando diabolus intelligitur. (The raven is understood in a variety of ways in the sacred scriptures: sometimes it means a preacher, sometimes a sinner, sometimes the devil.) It reminds me that I am simul justus et peccator.
