Research

My research focuses on late medieval literature and culture of the Low Countries. Currently, I am preparing a monograph on the editions of vernacular religious texts published by the printer Gerard Leeu († 1492) within my NWO (Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research) Veni-project ‘Leaving a Lasting Impression. The Impact of Incunabula on Late Medieval Spirituality, Religious Practice and Visual Culture in the Low Countries’ (2018-2021). Before that, I conducted a project on text and image on the early printing press at the Université catholique de Louvain. My PhD-project (Leiden University, cum laude, 2014) focused on the role of the Franciscan Observance in the production and dissemination of religious literature and in particularly on Hendrik Herp’s Mirror of Perfection.

Fields of interest

  • Religious literature and society (15th and early 16th century)
