Welcome to a New Writer: Robert W. Keim

We are very glad to welcome a new contributor to our writing staff, Mr Robert W. Keim, a secular brother of the London Oratory of St Philip Neri, a linguist, and a literary scholar specializing in the poetic and dramatic literature of the English Renaissance. A longtime student of the arts and spirituality of sacred liturgy, Robert teaches university courses in rhetoric, recently completed a new verse translation of the Psalms, and has worked in traditional and online publishing for over ten years. He is writing his doctoral dissertation on martyrdom and martyrial characters in Shakespeare’s plays and poems, and he is also pursuing research into the devotional, scriptural, and liturgical culture of medieval England.

We have already shared some lovely pieces by him, one about the Exsultet and another (in two parts: one and two) about bells. His first piece as a staff writer will appear shortly - feliciter tibi, optime!
