Orosius aside, her research interests include: Christian pilgrimages in Late Antiquity and Early Middle Ages; theological and political relationships between Christians and Jews in the Roman Empire; use and interpretation of apocalyptic writings in ancient Christian sources (with a focus on the 4th and 5th cent.); contemporary and post-contemporary debates on the use of “political theology”.
