What Historians Are
The inquiry and investigation of history moves beyond the names and dates printed in black blotted serif. History is rather drawn forth through the obsession and perception of the historian from narratives and stories filled with vibrant characters and entangling plots. We work to give voices to the forgotten, to provide context for both tragedy and triumph, and to reject the secular narrative of the past that loses sight of the divine fabric of the historical tapestry.
You have been called because of your desire to discover and illuminate the past. What we can give you are the tools to research thoroughly, think critically, communicate effectively, and apply your passion to a broad spectrum of opportunity.
