Field of Study

Medieval History

My research focuses on the medieval church, particularly in Italy. Presently I am writing a book on changes in forms and practices of record keeping (chiefly the transition from charters to registers) called the "documentary revolution" through a comparison of developments in Città di Castello and Cava de'Tirreni.
