I am an independent researcher specialising in the history of medieval medicine, miracles and magic.
My doctoral thesis examined medieval miracle accounts and canonization records of healing miracles. I investigated the influence of theology, law, natural philosophy and medicine on the definition of a miracle.
My current research looks at clerical and medical ideas about the influence of demons and harmful magic on the
human body. I explore the topics of demonic
possession, gender and sin, along with remedies against demonic and magical harm.
