I am an AHRC-funded PhD candidate at Christ’s College, the University of Cambridge, studying the relationship between food and religion in the English Protestant Reformation and the Italian Catholic Reformation, c.1560 – c. 1640.
I approach the religious change of the Reformations through embodied or ‘lived’ religious experience, and am interested more broadly in how past people understood and interacted with the material world.
