My first interests were in hospitals and charity. Initially I studied the greater part of the medieval period because one of the institutions I was interested in , St Leonard's Hospital, York, claimed to have been founded in 936, and was suppressed at the dissolution of the monasteries in 1540. However most of work has been on the period from the Black Death to the Reformation (1348-1547). Out of this grew my interest in female lay piety. More recently I have been working on masculinity and especially secular clerical masculinity in the later middle ages.
