My name is Gavin Ferriby. I serve Sacred Heart University, in Fairfield, Connecticut, as University Librarian and Director of the Ryan Matura Library.

I wear a number of hats, including professional librarian (M.S. Columbia University), Ph.D. in Church History (Princeton Theological Seminary), church musician (CAGO), and of course parent.

I’m also involved in project regarding the development of liturgical allegory in the early work of Amalarius of Metz (a continuation of my dissertation work). In 2008 I completed digital mark-up and presentation of 36 papyri in Trexler Library, Muhlenberg College (where I worked 2001-2006). A long-term project is reading the whole of Karl Barth’s Church Dogmatics / Die Kirchliche Dogmatik.
