Honegger before 2013

Dr. Thomas M. Honegger (born 1965 in Zürich, Switzerland) is a linguist, and Tolkien scholar who has compiled most publications of the Cormarë Series by Walking Tree Publishers. With extensive background in Medieval studies and philology, Honegger was a board member of the German Mediävistenverband ('Medieval Society') from 2003 to 2011, and teaches Old English at Friedrich Schiller University Jena. He is also of the advisory board for the German Tolkien Society's bilingual study Hither Shore.

Honegger's fascination with J.R.R. Tolkien and his writings was stimulated by his own study of Germanic languages and Medieval literature at the University of Zurich in the 90's, long after he had first read The Lord of the Rings to little interest.[1]

In the 2000's, he began writing reviews of many works of Tolkien criticism and Medieval studies.[2]
