Quiet academic type from North West England. BA English, MA Renaissance Literature.
I studied in exile by the rivers of Babylon for 3 years, aka Cambridge. And I descended into Egypt, aka PricewaterhouseCoopers. Now I live in a spiritual hermitage where I study literature, philosophy and religion.
I will let my book preferences speak for me; hopefully you will get an idea of my personality. Here is my current top 10:
1. The Bible; 2. Dante, Divine Comedy; 3. Bonaventure, Journey of the Mind to God; 4. George Herbert, The Temple; 5. Fr Gabriel, Divine Intimacy; 6. Aquinas, Summa Theologica; 7. Kempis, Imitation of Christ; 8. Donne, Poetry; 9. T S Eliot, Four Quartets; 10. Spenser, Fowre Hymnes.
Also, works I most look forward to reading over the coming twelve months:
1. Peter Lombard, Sentences; 2. Origen, Commentary on the Song of Songs; 3. Augustine, City of God; 4. Dante, Vita Nuova; 5. Cheng’en, Journey to the West.
