Gábor Ambrus is a scholarly explorer of the field, the theological theory of media, in which he found his way to the cTPM. He started his capricious career as a poet and will hopefully end it as such. What brought him into the academic world was a fascination with literature and language. He obtained master’s degrees in Classics, Hungarian and Theology. His first, tentative steps as a researcher were in the fields of literary theory and theological hermeneutics. Later on, his research interest extended to the theoretical questions of visual representation. Following his academic pursuits, he went on a long pilgrimage and became a scholarly vagabond who left his native Hungary and took up residence in various countries such as Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Belgium. He obtained his PhD in Theology from K.U. Leuven with a doctoral thesis on a series of medieval diagrams devised by Joachim of Fiore (Theology and Medium: An Inquiry into the Diagrammatic Images of Joachim of Fiore). As the gleeful owner of a recent PhD, he became the cTPM’s newest acquisition in 2015. So he is in the position to think that Prague and the Czech Republic might turn out to be the final destination of his Wanderjahre.
