I was born in New York City at sunrise on 13 December 1947.
I hold both United Kingdom and United States passports.
I hold a Bachelor of Divinity degree from Kings College, London. In taking
this degree in 1984, I was required to pass examinations in Latin, Greek, and
Hebrew, as well as in English. Languages and Linguistics have long been of great
interest to me. I can read Anglo Saxon, am fairly fluent in Polish, and can
comprehend Spanish to an extent. I have also study'd reconstructions of the
Proto Aryan Language. I have also made an extensive study of
Calligraphy, and Palæography;
and am well versed in Astrology. I was also once a professional Cartographer.
In matters of grammar, spelling, and punctuation, I am most influenced by the style of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. I prefer an Oxford Dictionary. The modern writer whose style I like best is Elizabeth Goudge.
I had study'd Theology with the intention of becoming a priest of the Church
of England, but it became apparent that as an Anglo Catholick, an absolute
Monarchist, and a Reactionary Tory Paternalist, I was far too conservative for
what the C. of E. was becoming at the time and was unlikely ever to be
recommended for Ordination. My conscience has since forced me to flee the
Anglican Communion and make my peace with Rome, and I thank God and the Saints
that I was at last led to Sacred Heart, New Haven, which still preserved the
traditional (Tridentine) Latin Mass. In
terms of philosophy, I am most influenced by St. Thomas Aquinas and Bishop
