At present my research deals mainly with medieval sermons and Biblical commentaries. I am working on editions of two rather large Latin texts: a commentary on Joshua written in 1155 in the Benedictine monastery of Admont, Austria, and a collection of sermons probably written in the Cistercian abbey of Alvastra, Sweden, in the early thirteenth century. I also continue to take an interest in the Augustinian Order in Denmark during the Middle Ages, especially the monastery of Dalby, as well as baptism in theory and practice during the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. I stay in close touch with research on late medieval sermons and on St. Birgitta and the Birgittine Order, and plan a major research project on sermon collections from the library of Vadstena Abbey.
