About Me

I, William Brown, earned a MA in Hebrew Bible at the University of Chicago Divinity School. My interests include, though are not limited to, anything related to ancient Israelite and Mesopotamian religion. Critical theory and teaching take up the rest of my headspace. On the side, I play RPG board games.

  1. William, I see that you visited my blog, “Inspired Glass.” I hope you visit often. I am mostly taking photos in Kansas City. I grew up in Chicago. Hope you enjoy your study there. I received an MA in English from U of Chi in 1967. There are many wonderful churches and stained glass windows in Chicago. Have a good time exploring. There used to be a wonderful stained glass museum down at Navy Pier, but unfortunately they closed it a couple of years ago. There is a beautiful “Arts and Craft” church at 19th and South Michigan (Second Presbyterian) with several wonderful Tiffany windows and two gems by Bourne-Jones, a rarity in the US. Keep in touch and good luck in Chicago. Bruce
