Research interests

My primary interest is the history of Christianity in early modern Europe (c. 1500–1800), focusing especially on the Lutheran Reformation in the Danish-Norwegian territories (Denmark, Norway, the North Atlantic isles, and Schleswig-Holstein) and its impact on theology, ecclesiastical material culture, and migration. With the categories of selfing and othering, I examine how collective identities emerged from the Reformation.

My secondary interest is nineteenth- and twentieth-century sacred architecture as religious and national sites of memory.

Currently I am researching religious toleration in non-Lutheran immigrant congregations and in the long-established Lutheran church in seventeenth-century Schleswig-Holstein.
