Thesis: The Trinity in the visual culture of England 950-1150 
Supervised by Dr Alixe Bovey and Professor John Lowden
Supported by CHASE (the Consortium of the Humanities and the Arts South-East England)
My research investigates representations of the Trinity in England in the late Anglo-Saxon period, and encompasses art, theology and literature. I am interested in exploring the role of the visual in the doctrine of the Trinity and testing the hypothesis that Trinitarian images exemplify iconographic inventiveness on the part of Anglo-Saxon artists. Images of the Trinity which appeared in England during this period mainly survive in manuscripts. I am also considering other media, including ivory carving, wall painting, sculpture and coins. My aim is to place the images into their cultural, intellectual, and iconographic contexts in order to establish the importance of the Trinity in the devotional climate of tenth- and eleventh-century England.
