- About Me
I am a fourth year DPhil student at Oxford University (St Peter’s College) where I am just about to submit my doctoral thesis. My research focuses on the office of the Papal Vice-Chancellor, an office that was second in importance to the Papacy. I study the office and its responsibilities through the example of Rodrigo Borgia (later Pope Alexander VI) who held the office from 1457-1492 when he was elected Pope.
My wider research interests include religious history both in Europe and the British Isles after completing a BA (Warwick) focusing on religion and religiously motivated rebellion under Elizabeth I and an MA (Durham) on the Cathars. I am also working on ideas of religious conflict in the city of Rome in the fifteenth century, the theme of my first article.
