My research interests lie within the field of history in the Middle Ages. I focus on political, economic and social developments in medieval Europe as well as cultural history especially of the late Middle Ages. My current project deals with the interlinkage between political and religious spheres. A good example of this is the question, why and how the enormous churches and cathedrals of Europe were built and financed.
