I am a historian of religious cultures in early modern England, investigating belief and practice during the 'long' Reformation c. 1450-1700. My research relates to processes of religious change in their social and political contexts, and I investigate beliefs associated with the supernatural, patterns of disenchantment and re-enchantment, processes of secularisation, the development of natural and mechanical philosophy and the emergence of the new thinking, and the interface between official and 'popular' expectations and mentalities. My first monograph, Angels and Belief in England 1480-1700 was published by Pickering and Chatto in February 2012.
the many-headed monster is a blog that I co-author with historians at the Universities of Cambridge, Birmingham and Birkbeck; find out more there.
