  • About Gilbert Bogner Ph.D.

    A faculty member at Saint Vincent College since 1998, Dr. Bogner specializes in the medieval period of European history (ca.500-ca.1500). In his courses, he seeks to dispel the many myths of this most misunderstood and maligned epoch of the human past while guiding students in understanding and appreciating its rich and influential culture. Dr. Bogner resides in Greensburg, PA, with his wife, son, dog, and three cats. His love of Star Wars, Star Trek, Dungeons & Dragons, graphic novels, vintage toys, and classic rock is legendary!
