Wednesday, April 13, 2016 - 6:00pm

Christine Caldwell Ames is a historian of medieval Europe with a particular interest in the history of Christianity, heresy and inquisition, and inter-religious relations. Her articles have appeared in The American Historical Review, Heresis, History Compass, and Comitatus, and her book Righteous Persecution: Inquisition, Dominicans, and Christianity in the Middle Ages was published by the University of Pennsylvania Press in 2009.
Dr. Ames says, "My current projects are two books. Medieval Heresies: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, which I am writing for the Cambridge Medieval Textbooks series, is a comparative history of heresy, heterodoxy, and religious nonconformity within the three major faiths of the medieval world. Blood of the Vine: A Religious History of Wine in Medieval Europe recently took me to Bordeaux, France, where I spent the academic year of 2011-2012 as a Fulbright Research Scholar."
