Line 1: Line 1:
My name is Michael Fulton and I am a student at the University of Texas at Austin, studying Ancient History and Classical Civilizations with a Greek minor. Brought up a Roman Catholic, I was led to Orthodoxy through research after becoming disturbed by post-conciliar Rome. I was brought into the Church [[Holy Saturday]] 2004 and have been a faithful congregant at St. Elias Antiochian Orthodox Church located in Austin, TX.
 
  
=Education and Prospectives=
 
Upon leaving the den of postmodernism which is UT, I plan on becoming a seminarian (hopefully at [[St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary (Crestwood, NY)|St. Vladimir's]], God willing). Hopefully I will find time in between my studies to marry my girlfriend [[Gabriela]] (a.k.a. Jessica), who is also a contributor to Orthodox Wiki.
 
 
=My Interests=
 
I have a fondness for [[Category:Liturgics|liturgical theology]], which would explain my beef with current innovations in Western liturgics (particularly the Novus Ordo Missae). I am also keenly interested in patristics, [[Category:Angels|angelology]], pre-schismatic Anglo-Saxon and French saints, and [[Category:Church history|ecclesiastical history]] as well as Byzantine history in general are passions of mine. Aside from trudging through Latin and Greek (often with much pain on my person), I have a sick fascination with cultology, and from that stems my interest in apologetics.
 
 
I'm a nerd and cajun at heart. My parents' families have unique histories which are closely tied to the Texas Gulf Coast and Southern Louisiana. Beyond my pious interests, I am a trekkie, and I have a habit of rubbing it off on my girlfriend (slowly she is learning to tell the difference between a Cardassian and a Klingon).
