I was once introduced as, 'Andrew, my flatmate, the one who isn't a theologian', to which the introduced person replied, 'so he's an un-theologian.' I kept the tag, especially since a the third person I flat with is Catholic and signs himself as Magister Sacra Theologia, Master of Theology, after his name. I am interested in theology but I have no credentials in that direction and am content to remain an untheologian for now. I like Paul's breakdown of my title though. Before I discovered this list I called our shared hobby Created Languages rather than Constructed Languages. - andrew. -- Andrew Smith, Intheologus "Death is an evil; the gods have so judged it; had it been good, they would die." - Sappho of Lesbos.
