About the Author

Robert Ziomkowski, Ph.D., received a postdoctoral degree at the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies, Toronto, in 2002. He earned his doctorate in History from Cornell University in 2000.

Dr. Ziomkowskis teaching repertoire includes courses in western civilization, medieval history, ancient history, science in the western tradition, Islamic civilization and Latin, as well as seminars on witchcraft and heresy, the soul in medieval culture, and paleography. His current research focuses on the medieval reception of ancient Greek science, especially as seen in commentaries on the creation narratives in the Book of Genesis and Platos Timaeus.

In 2003 he curated an exhibition of Cornell Universitys medieval manuscripts and published an online version, From Manuscript to Print: The Evolution of the Medieval Book (http://rmc. library.cornell.edu/medievalbook/). He currently teaches at Ithaca College.

Lisa J., October 22, 2006 (view all comments by Lisa J.)
This was a very tough subject for me. The book certainly helped, as I had no base knowledge of this. I barely missed a passing score (after much studying) and I won't try it again after the waiting period. Good prep book, but Western Civ I is VERY broad subject.
