Are we, indeed, at the end of all things in the West? Has Christian Civilization, which began with St. Constantine, peaked in the High Middle Ages, and has been in decline at least since Scholasticism, run its course?
I have a B.A. in history from Biola University, La MIrada, California, and an M.A. in history from California State University, Sacramento, California. I teach Western Civilization, and am an associated scholar and member of The Abbeville Institute, and a member of The Ghost Story Society.
I am a proud descendant of Charles the Hammer (through the Blossom/Fitz Randolph line of Plimoth Plantation), Revolutionary and Southron Patriots, and Danish and English settlers to the Stillaguamish and Skagit River valleys in Washington State.
Reading and research interests include Colonial and Revolutionary America, the American South, ghostly tales, the writings of Russell Kirk, Mel Bradford, Wendell Berry, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Ray Bradbury, and T.S. Eliot, and Anglo-American Conservative intellectual history and literature.
