Tolkien Gateway


Hullo there! And welcome to my user page!


[edit] A bit about me

I'm a student studying Ancient History and Classical Civilizations at the University of Texas at Austin, and a native-born Texian. When I am not immersed in Xenophon or catching up on my Biblical Greek, I am enjoying fine teas (Lapsang souchong being my favorite), indulging in pipe tobacco, involved with my local Eastern Orthodox Christian parish, or much to the chagrin of my long-suffering fiancée, rambling about the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. After graduation, I hope to attend St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary in New York to obtain my Masters of Divinity, and consequently, be ordained a priest. I'm a nerd and cajun at heart, finding delight in spicy foods and jazz. My parents' families have unique histories which are closely tied to the Texas Gulf Coast and Southern Louisiana.

[edit] Other Wikis

Aside from this place, I do contribute to Wikipedia[1] under the handle ICXCNIKA. I also frequent OrthodoxWiki[2] under the name of Mike. I frequent this place more so than Wikipedia.

[edit] My Interests in the Tolkien Legendarium

I have a wide range of interests and passions in Tolkien's world. First and foremost, I have an affection for the Second Age, particularly the histories of Numenor and Arnor. Aside from that, the history of Hobbits is another love of mine. Although a newcomer to this wiki, I hope to contribute more to the Tolkien Gateway in the future.

[edit] The meaning behind my handle

Eraisuithon (Sindarin, lit. He who is like The One) a translation for Michael (Hebrew, lit. He who is like God), my Christian name.
