My first blog

after years of writing books, articles, having created my own academic social network ( with over 20,000 members (although the software urgently needs further developments), have patience with me in finding may way around, how to blog. Whoever can give valuable input, please do as I am totally new to this medium. Yes, I have contributed to Blog's of others, but never managed my own one.
So, here is the start,
yours Markus


  1. You are doing very well at present

  2. Dear Maolcolum,
    thanks for your comment - I am not surprised that you are the first who has discovered and commented on my new blog. Indeed, I have not got an entry on literature and poetry, but why not have a go and start it off!
    Yours Markus

  3. Congratulations for the blog. If possible, I would be interested to read more about your work on Cyril of Alexandria.

  4. Hi Markus, I've just found your blog and it has made me really happy! I studied Religion in Late Antiquity under your teaching in 2009/2010 and I really loved it. You are truly inspirational! I have just started blogging myself ( - you may recognise me from my picture). I was just thinking about you because I was wondering if your book (the draft from which we studied) has been published. I would really like to find out more about how Jews and the early Christians approached scripture to prepare for my next blog post.

    I look forward to hearing back from you. Also, if you want to know how I have done anything on my blog the please ask.

  5. I have been following and enjoying Neil's Vridar site for a couple of years, and am glad to have found yours.

    May I recommend a viewing of relevant sites I publish?

    Any comments would be appreciated.
