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.

comment History of Christian Prayer
Hello Jengish and welcome to this site! If you haven't already checked out our site tour and help center, please do - as well as browsing our existing questions and answers. Thank you for asking this question and I hope you get a helpful answer. It is quite a broad question, so you may have to split it up in order to get the most out of this site (for example, the humanism question could be asked separately). Other users may have advice on that. Welcome once again!

comment Covering of the hair for women, and beards in 1st Century Palestine
Is this a Christianity question? There could be a Christian angle to it, but the question as written doesn't mention Christianity explicitly.

comment Keep the law OR nail to the cross?
I'm having trouble following the train of thought in your answer. Perhaps you could add some more linking material or explanation to make it clear how your assertions and quotations relate to one another, and to the original question.
