My research can be placed within medieval studies with a further specification on the social and economic history of the later Middle Ages. Drawing on a hermeneutic approach, I mainly work with administrative sources of ecclesiastical institutions (i.e. cathedrals) applying quantitative as well as qualitative methods. The respective questions are concerned with a broad range of financial and social aspects of medieval cathedral building as well as the development and transmission of the different forms of knowledge involved in the process. The geographical focus of my work is southern England and northern France.

Keywords: Social and economic history, knowledge transmission, palaeography, England, France, urban history, ecclesiastical institutions, medieval studies
