Profile Summary
Throughout my academic career I have been an active researcher in the field of late medieval sermons, pastoral and devotional literature, with recent research and publications in late medieval and Tudor religious and devotional texts, with particular emphasis on the Bridgettine order and their contribution to early printed texts. I am an editor of both manuscripts and early printed texts, and am particularly interested in the period of transition from manuscript to print. I have made significant contributions to the understanding of the role played by Lady Margaret Beaufort in the dissemination of printed religious texts in the Tudor period.
