Research interests

My monograph, Moderate Radical: Tobie Matthew and the English Reformation (2018, OUP) explores the evolution of English Puritanism between Elizabethan and Caroline England. I also publish on reading practices and annotations, early modern libraries and Tudor history writing. From June 2018 I am working in partnership with Nina Adamova, St Petersburg University on copies of the Nuremberg Chronicle in the National Library of Russia and U.K. I am working on Preaching and the senses, particularly the development of sign languages for the deaf and early modern preaching.
