Dr. Laura Hohman earned her Ph.D. from the Catholic University of America in 2016. Her research interests focus on the religious and cultural history of late antique and medieval Europe. More specifically, her dissertation, entitled Carolingian Sermons: Religious Reform, Pastoral Care, and Lay Piety, investigated early medieval pastoral care, popular culture, and educational systems through a detailed analysis of 9th century-manuscript compilations. Despite her focus on medieval Europe, her research interests expand to the Classical, Late Antique, Byzantine, Renaissance and Reformation eras in both European and Mediterranean world contexts.
