Welcome to my website!
I have created these pages to share a variety of things with a variety of groups. The main purpose is to share thoughts and documents with various groups that I teach, but I will also use them to publish an ecclectic variety of material which may interest people in one way or another.
Jesus Christ in Scripture, Culture and Theology
This is a 'thematic' seminar for first year theology at the Gregorian (TST216). in the seminar we will look at the person of Jesus and the influence of Christology on Culture and on other branches of theology.(TST116), Notes can be found on my theology page
Also on this page is material from last semesters seminar, The Craft of Theology , in which we explored the nature and purpose of theology. Details can also be found on my theology page .
for three years I ran an seminar on the Gospel of Mark at the Gregorian (TSN007), and on my Mark Page you can find related material.
Here you will find the notes for my course Ecumenism; Principles and Practice . They now have tabs at the top of the page
Students of ecumenism may also be intersted in the text of the public lecture I gave at St John's Seminary on 5 Feb 2009 as part of a series of lectures for the Year of St Paul: Paul and Corinth, and its Significance for Ecumenism Today (PDF)
Here you will find notes for the seminar I prepared on Paul and the Corinthians , - unfortuantely never delivered due to ill health! However material from an earlier seminar on Paul can also be found there.
Challenging Texts of the Old Testament
In Summer 2008 I ran a seminar in which looked at some of the more 'difficult' Old Testament texts - that is to say those texts which are challenging not so much on the level of exegesis as interpretation. Most obvious among these are some of the 'holy war' texts, but there are many others. More details can be found on my Old Testament page.
I am currently working on a doctoral thesis entitles A Theology of Genocide: Deuteronomy 20:16-18 as Scripture from a Catholic Perspective at the Gregorian - I have added my aproved proposal and the initial bibliography.
I take quite a lot of photographs in my spare time, and I tend to upload the best to my facebook page.
These include photos in the streets and piazzas of Rome. You can view these even if you are not on facebook.
Watch this space for further photo collections.
The Pilgrimage to Santiago di Compostella
I have also moved my Camino Pages here which document my pilgrimage in 2004. There you will discover that, aside from walking, my other major extra curricular interest is photography.
