My blog posts revolve around my interests and vocation as a historian: the intersection of history and contemporary church life, the intersection of history and contemporary politics, serendipitous discoveries in archives or on research trips, publications and research projects, upcoming conferences, and speaking engagements.
I sometimes blog for two other organizations, the Canadian Baptist Historical Society and the Centre for Post-Christendom Studies.
The views expressed in these blogs represent the views of the authors, and not necessarily those of any organizations with which they are associated.
I have visited Oxford, UK, many times over the past thirty years. However, it is embarrassing to say that as a historian of Christianity I only heard of St. Frideswide this year (thanks to Louis for pointing her out to me!).
This year I was able to go to Oxford University for archival research, and I made sure that I visited places associated with her (in particular the parish church and well in Binsey). The following are some pictures as well as some brief comments.
