Philological exegete, linguist, author. Doing my PhD on the sun goddess in Ugaritic/Canaanite religious texts. Have studied quite a number of ancient languages (among others Ugaritic, Latin, Greek, Hittite, Akkadian, Gothic, Oscan, Sanskrit, Hebrew, Hurrian) and published books on the subject (one of them was "I döda språks sällskap" - in English "Dead Languages' Society", a book in Swedish about such very old tounges). My first novel (written together with my father) is being published in Sweden this spring.
OT studies, history of religion and comparative linguistics are close to my heart (*kerd-). Gnosticism, Hermeticism and ancient esotericism (PGM and such) also interest me highly. Am also great fan of Final Fantasy, Evelyn Waugh, Twin Peaks and Darth Vader - and Jane Austen for that matter.
