My work uses thirteenth-century inquisition records to re-examine the question of how extensive aristocratic participation in heresy actually was. I am interested in studying aristocratic networks and relationships, community interaction with inquisition, regional power structures, belief systems, dependency, familial ties and patronage networks.
