I am an expert on early modern history with a focus on the history of scholarship, religion, and science. I presently have two projects in progress.
First, I'm wrapping up a monograph on the origins of the heterodox belief that people do not have immortal souls, which examines the history of the concept of the soul in early modern England. This topic was the subject of an interdisciplinary debate in the early modern period that included scholars from various fields, including history, medicine, and natural philosophy. Building on this work, I am also writing a "biography" of William Warburton's classic the Divine Legation of Moses (1738–41), a book about the belief in immortality among the biblical Hebrews that, despite being an extremely technical work of scholarship, caused a sensation among the general public in the middle of the eighteenth century.
Another key interest is the history of astrology in the early modern world. I’m writing about the process by which astrology, once a vibrant aspect of cultural and intellectual life, came to be rejected as a superstition outside the bounds of science – a huge shift that remains a major puzzle in the history of science. My main interest is the contribution of late humanist scholarship to this shift and to ‘disenchantment’
I’m also interested in the history of different state regimes and political movements. Since I am a historian by education, this is my main interest. It is insanely interesting for me to connect simple life, historical facts and current history.
