I am a cultural historian and my main focus is Western Europe in the period 800-1200. The combined use of a wide range of written and archaeological evidence characterises my past and most recent research. I have worked on: space and memory as ideological tools in medieval Europe; the relationship between power and territory in early medieval western Europe; the medieval Papacy; monastic lordships in medieval Italy; medieval monasteries and their chronicles; the memory of origins and the construction of identities in European monastic institutions. I am also studying the practices, dynamics, and ritual patterns of the destruction of documents in early medieval societies.
My current research focuses on the use that the members of monastic communities made of supernatural visions in situations of political competition.
