About Me

My photo
I am a medievalist and an adjunct college instructor in the humanities at Union College. My research includes medieval theologies of history, text/image relationships in visionary and mystical texts, and the writings of the twelfth-century Doctor of the Church, St. Hildegard of Bingen. I am also a translator of medieval Latin and German texts, especially as relate to my research. My translation of Hildegard's Book of Divine Works is available from Catholic University of America Press here. I completed a Master's in Medieval Studies at the University of Notre Dame in 2010, a Fulbright Fellowship in Germany in 2008, and a B.A. in Classics and German at Boston College in 2007.

Sunrise, Sunset

Though today is overcast and cool, yesterday was one of those perfect examples of autumn: a warm, partly-cloudy day that opened and closed crisply with numinous light.  This is sunrise from a hillock at the southern tip of the University of the Cumberlands campus:

And evening came: the eastward streaming light, kindling a farewell fire to echo the rays of morning as they had sought the skies from orient:

Sunset from our front porch, Oct. 10, 2011.
