Ann Chapman Price

I am a PhD Candidate at Duke University, where I study the history of Christianity.

My dissertation investigates vernacular lay mysticism among the Sisters of the Common Life, women who were part of the devotio moderna (Modern Devotion), a reform movement focused on renewal of Christian community and personal piety (late 14th-16th centuries). My research explores connections between the spirituality of the Sisters of the Common Life and the theology of medieval mystics from Brabant and the Rhineland, such as Ruusbroec and Suso, respectively.

I am also interested in digital humanities, such as digital text editing, and in conversations around theorizing race, gender, and sexuality in the premodern and early modern eras and the intersections of these concerns with Christian theology.
