Theological historians - what a great idea!
Just read a great blog entry by Jon Yeager on what it means to be a theological historian. Personally, I've always struggled to find a description that best captures what I do, not really being an historian of theology, and not really entirely happy being known as a social historian of religion. Will my colleagues know what I'm talking about if I call myself a theological historian though? All the same the best practicioners of the art, Noll, Bebbington etc etc, set a very high standard to emulate! See: http://esrh.blogspot.com/.
