I ended up with Clergy:

You are a spiritual person and you are drawn to peace and simplicity in your life. You enjoy reading and writing, spending the bulk of your time in quiet contemplation of creation. The life of a clergy member is a relatively safe and lucrative pursuit in Medieval times and you hold great power in your community. You are drawn to helping and saving as many souls as you can in this life.

That makes some sense for me since I guess I do consider myself a strong spiritual person, always seeking, and obviously enjoy writing, which would have been a primary function of a clergyman, and I also enjoy foreign language study. Since they didn’t have computers back then or stock trading, I guess clergy would be a logical path for me at that time.

  1. I ended up with Clergy too. I don’t go to church, but I do believe in learning, growing, and helping others. I’d probably be killed for arguing with the organized church or I’d have to travel from place to place before I could be killed.

  2. Appreciating the time and effort you put into your blog and in depth information you provide. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed
    information. Fantastic read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  3. Thank you Joseph.

    Sorry for the really long delay in my response. I recently moved and my life has been in boxes over the past several months.

    I also don’t get the chance to post as frequently as I would like anymore, but hopefully my site can still serve as a great resource for medieval enthusiasts as I have compiled a lot of information over the past 10 years.
