Trained as a philologist, I now specialize in the history of the liturgy and of the book. My research at the Titus Brandsma Institute has two prongs. On the one hand, I study the spirituality and religious culture of late medieval women's convents in the context of the Modern Devotion, as these are apparent from their books. On the other, I focus on the influence of the Modern Devotion in the early modern era. Both themes are present in my current projects: an archaeological approach to the historical library of the former convent of Soeterbeeck, and a study of Dutch editions of the 'Imitatio Christi' by Thomas a Kempis, a text that is also central to my teaching.
