Director of Studies in Theology and Fellow in Ecclesiastical History, Keble College
Sarah's research examines early modern Christianity from a variety of perspectives: literary, social, spiritual, and intellectual. Other research interests include: Religion and feminism and early modern Britain, gender and history, mystical theology and the Enlightenment, The Cambridge Platonists, and the early Quakers. Currently, she is working on a book about ecumenical pietism in seventeenth-century Britain, arguing that mystical theology represented a critical conversation partner in the epistemological debates which shaped the British Enlightenment.
