Profile

Biography

Meg's research interests centre on the development of the early Church in Anglo-Saxon England, during the 6th-9th centuries. Her PhD focuses on the containment of sacred space, and representations of Jerusalem, in both textual and visual exemplars, to explore the importance of space, place and site in the construction of an institutional identity during this period. Her thesis examines these concepts in the broader context of the Late Antique/early Christian world, suggesting that the early church consciously employed a language of theorized space/s to evoke physical and metaphysical incarnations of its key sites. Her wider research interests include iconography, spatial theory, architectural theory and the relationship of text to image/object.
