Ryan Bradley is a Baptist who is interested in using the wider Catholic tradition to help navigate disparities in his own. More specifically, Bradley's work is concentrated in character, virtue, ethics and the historic peace church. Stanley Hauerwas and Ludwig Wittgenstein are very important to him, but after some time at UD, he began the larger task of bringing their work into conversation with the apophatic tradition as it presents in late medieval German mysticism. Accordingly, he moonlights as a welder on the side, and he's convinced there is an ineffable darkness that hides behind even the brightest arc flash.
