Fall 2008.  This is my 40th year at Drew.  I was one of the founding members of the M.Litt. program in the graduate school, specializing in “The Medieval Mind,” a rubric that allows me to teach a different topic each semester.  Since 1968 I have been Adjunct Professor of Church History in the T.R. program and taught courses in the college in the Religion department.  Dante’s Divine Comedy is a standard course taught in a cycle.  My most recent course was “The Carolingian Renaissance.”  I am a Benedictine monk at St. Mary’s Abbey, Morristown and this brings to Drew a monastic perspective, with a 1500 year tradition.
