Late Antique and Medieval Religious Imagery
Early Medieval Britain
"The Seven Sleepers of Ephesus, Germania, Westminster, and Rouen: An Examination of Politics, Power, and Glass"
Most of my research focuses on the vocabulary of religious imagery in both Byzantium and the Medieval West, and how those images embody theology and politics. Particular areas of interest include stained glass, ivories, and manuscript illumination, as well as the ideology of holy warfare in the Middle to Late Byzantine period.
