I am a Doctoral Research Fellow (or Stipendiat) here at MF. My work focuses on Christianity in Late Antiquity, especially in the Latin West. My approach is interdisciplinary, focusing on the intersecting ideas communicated through texts, manuscripts, and art history. My current project uses all of these disciplines to investigate the use of the term "Gospel" or evangelium in the Latin West from 312 to 596 CE.
