Christopher M. Kurpiewski
Christopher M. Kurpiewski is a historian who studies the intersection of religion, power, and gender in medieval Europe. His current project attempts to better understand the rhetoric and reality of the collaborative relationship claimed by confessors and their “spiritual daughters” who were pursuing greater religion for themselves in 13th- and 14th-century Germany. Other interests include cultural studies, folklore, evolutionary psychology, and the relationship between community and memory. He is published in the Journal of Medieval History.
