Hip Hip …

A rousing cheer goes up for Rick Tomsick, Tertullian scholar at Ursuline College in Ohio, who finished admirably in the Pittsburgh Marathon day before yesterday.

Among Rick’s titles are “Tertullian’s Menagerie: De Idololatria and the Rule of Faith,” “Structure and Exegesis in Tertullian’s Ad Uxorem and De Exhortatione Castitatis,” “An Imperative to Defend: Tertullian’s Influence on the Definition of Doctrine in de Praescriptione Haereticorum,” “Early Christians and Culture,” and “What, Then, Can We Do? Symmetry and Substance in Tertullian’s Early Disciplinary Works.”

Maybe next he’ll turn to De Spectaculis.
