Welcome to The Roundel, the academic blog for systematic and historical theology at St. Mary’s College. The blog receives its name from the Roundel study space, an office complex provided to postgraduate researchers by St. Mary’s.
We envision this blog as a place where we might share the conversations that we enjoy within our community with the broader academic world. In the coming weeks, we will provide book reviews, blog posts about current research topics, and summaries of our theology seminars.
Several people make this undertaking possible. Johannes Knecht and Alden McCray, two Ph.D. candidates in St. Mary’s, serve as our book review editors; Johannes focuses on works relevant to historical theology while Alden gives attention to systematic theology works. Rebekah Earnshaw, a third-year Ph.D. candidate, provides summaries of our theology seminars. Numerous staff, students, graduates, and friends of St. Mary’s will offer blog posts that detail their research interests or discuss current topics in the fields of systematic and historical theology.
Dr. Judith Wolfe has done excellent work designing the vast majority of this site and deserves special thanks. She also provides editorial guidance for Roundel blogposts. Dr. Timothy Baylor has contributed to the construction of this blog and also provides editorial guidance. I serve as managing editor and work to procure and upload blog content.
If you are interested in offering a contribution, do contact me. Please contact Johannes and Alden if you are interested in writing a book review.
With warm regards,
