Medieval History, History of Religion
BAH - Queen's University
I recently graduated from Queen's University with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree in History. During my final year, I completed an independent study project, "Last World Emperor: Count Emicho and the Jews of Germany," which delved into the world of the First Crusade through an examination of one particularly radical and violent group of German Crusaders. My project highlighted the role of Christian theology, particularly apocalypticism and eschatology, in shaping relations between the Christian majority and Jewish minority in the Rhineland. I am continuing with this question of Jewish-Christian relations, with particular interest in the role of the interpretation of sacred texts in shaping interactions between religious groups.
In my spare time, you can find me bicycling around Wolfe Island, learning Greek, and spending time with my friends and family.
