Current research interests

My recent research has concentrated on the role of the visual in devotion in the late Middle Ages and Renaissance, with a special focus on images associated with miracles. I have pursued these interests in two books: Pilgrimage to Images in the Fifteenth Century: The Origins of the Cult of Our Lady of Częstochowa (2004) and Art and Miracle in Renaissance Tuscany (2018).


Much of my research has focussed on the fifteenth century and my current project, begun with the support of a British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship, explores the implications of taking a broader view of the art of that conventionally pivotal period.
