An interesting meditation. Is the persona I have adopted
reflective of the way I really am?
Cadfael is a fictional character in the Brother Cadfael Mysteries written by Edith Pargeter under the pseudomyn Ellis Peters. The mysteries are set in the first half of twelfth century England in the generation following the Norman conquest. They are historically accurate in so far as historical detail is related, but Cadfael, a Welsh Benedictine monk, is totally fictional as are most of the other monks of the Abbey at Shrewsbury.
He is a quiet monk without aspirations to power, but his talents in medicinal herbs as well as his sharp intellect honed by years of Crusading and living in the World have often been brought to bear on murder investigations.
Is this me? Well, not exactly, as I do aspire to becoming an Abbot someday. I am also not celibate. I promise not to poison anyone in my quest, though.
My real name is Denis Hancock
