About This Site

The word doxa is Latin for praise, glory, honor. The intention of this site is to produce content at the service of the human person and his call to beatitude.

Launched in 2001, the site began as a simple web page, then expanded to include a blog in 2003, a series of audio podcasts in 2005, and a twitter feed in 2008.

Clayton Emmer, the founder and webmaster, now lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota. A native of Excelsior, he graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 1993 with a B.A. in English Literature and Great Books, attended a month-long graduate-level program at the Shakespeare Institute in 1993, and spent two years in formation for diocesan priesthood at the Saint Paul Seminary. He has worked in the roles of computer software trainer, web content manager and webmaster since 1997. He was also a freelance writer for The Catholic Servant from 1998 until 2002, and attended the Act One: Writing for Hollywood program in Chicago in 2002.

From 2003 through 2008, he lived in Los Angeles, California, working in both the non-profit and for-profit worlds, while serving in various apostolates to the entertainment community. More details about the Hollywood years may be found here.

Currently, Clayton works as a web administrator for an international restaurant chain. Since 2009, he has been serving as webmaster for The Christopher Inn International, a non-profit that aspires to serve Catholic bishops and priests by offering them a place for refreshment, ongoing personal formation, and fraternity.
