Gaudete Theology blogger now also blogs at BLT
Victoria Gaile Laidler now is a co-blogger here! Her other blog, of course, is Gaudete Theology, where many of us have enjoyed reading and dialoging with her and with one another. Just a few examples of some recent excellent posts there that you may enjoy are:
- Summarizing Mimetic Anthropology
- On Marriage
- Structural Sin and Moral Complexity
- St. Vidicon of Cathode
- Reading Revelation at Reading Acts
- How we understand the name(s) Jesus Christ
- Violence Renounced: Rene Girard, Biblical Studies, and Peacemaking
- Why go to church this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday?
- A Different Kind of Stations of the Cross
- Hildegard’s Symphonia, translated
Here is how Victoria describes what she is doing, her studies, her interests, her faith tradition, her day job, and what she reads a lot of:
I’m studying theology at the Ecumenical Institute of Theology. My primary interests are ecclesiology, ecumenism, and interfaith work, particularly Christian-Jewish dialogue. My faith tradition is Roman Catholic, and the liturgy is a primary resource and interpretive framework in my thinking, as are feminist theology and Girardian, or mimetic, anthropology.
I work as a scientific programmer at my day job, and I read a lot of science fiction and fantasy.
At this blog here, she has interacted with many you and with several of our posts. We hope you will welcome her here now. We all look forward to her BLT posts.
