Students often smile when they learn that my name is Romulus. “I’m not the founder of Rome,” I often need to clarify “nor do I have a brother called Remus” as if Remus would still be alive after his involuntary fratricide, “nor do I have Roman citizenship,” like Apostle Paul might have had. Equally important, I do not belong to the extraterrestrial humanoid species of Romulans from Star Trek. The truth is that I was born and grew up in, then, communist Romania, living with my grandparents who farmed their little piece of land with horses. During my college years, I moved from this pre-modern village to modern post-communist college town in Romania. For the last decade and a half, I lived in a post-modern world, in the USA, finishing a Ph.D. in Biblical Studies at the University of Chicago. At Bakke, I will have the privilege to teach for the Romanian cohort in the MA in Transformational Leadership program.
