Studied in Trinity College Dublin and St John's College Cambridge. After working in Ireland and America for the Irish Foreign Service, joined the Theology Department in Durham as Lecturer in Church History in 1988, and in 1999 moved to Nottingham. Supervises postgraduates working in the fields of theology and religious history from the late mediaeval period to the 17th century. My research interests lie in the theology of the Reformation and Counter-Reformation, relations between Catholics and Protestants in the 16th and 17th centuries, Irish religious history and the role of universities in the early-modern period.
