Title of thesis: Traversing the boundary between the passions and pathology in England c. 1425-1625


I graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2016 with a degree in History and History of Art, and went on to complete an interdisciplinary Masters in Medieval Studies at the University of York. My current research centres on the intersections between medicine and religion in fifteenth- and sixteenth-century England.
