Primary fields are Britain and Early Modern Europe. Interests include political and religious history. Current projects include a book on the problem of "belief" in early modern Europe, and a variety of ongoing projects that may or may not turn into books: a history of impiety (if such a thing is possible) and its role in the secularization of England; economic theology and the relationship between the Reformation and social radicalism in the sixteenth century; and something called "Establishment" which looks at what it means to have an "Established Church" in the Anglophone world from the Reformation to the United States Constitution.
