I specialise in the intellectual history of Early Modern France, and am currently completing a monograph entitled ‘Troubled Kingdom. France and the Catholic League, 1576-1610’. I am particularly interested in the intersection between religious and political ideas in the Wars of Religion, in the broader context of questions of national and religious identities in Counter-Reformation France. Thinkers of interest include Jean Bodin, Pierre Grégoire, Louis Dorléans, Guillaume du Vair, Étienne Pasquier and Michel de Montaigne. My next research project is the De Republica (1596) of Pierre Grégoire, with a particular emphasis on his re-casting of Bodinian ideas of sovereignty.
