I am a professor of art history - I specialize in the early Middle Ages, but I teach everything in western art before 1500 (thank GOODNESS we just hired an Asian Art specialist and I don't have to go learn all about that, too).

  • currently working on
filling in lots of factoids on the chronological conspectus pages

the 4th and 5th century articles
Paulinus of Nola
Jerome
Augustine of Hippo
Liber Pontificalis
Charlemagne and how the early middle ages are beginning to shape up
Baroque Art

By the way, as of 12/17/01 I'm on Christmas break - it's not that I'm off in a huff or never coming back, but I think a big dose of fiction would be a lot more restful. Now when I'm at my parents' I'll probably get bored enough to turn the computer on, but no promises.... --Michael
