Ragnhild BoeResearch Fellow
Ragnhild M. Bø’s research interests center on the role of religious images of all media in late medieval and early modern devotional practices, in particular as related to indulgences, emotions, and the cult of saints. She also pursues an interest in the properties and meanings of materials and in artists’ partaking in religious reading. Current projects include a forthcoming monograph on art and materiality, Magic and Loss: Alabaster, Wax and Tears in Late Medieval Art, and her post-doctoral project entitled “Image, Imitation, Indulgence: Netherlandish Altarpieces and Devotional Practices in Denmark-Norway 1400-1600”, funded by the FRIPRO Mobility Grant Programme – Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions’ COFUND (ERC) and The Norwegian Research Council.
