Lauren Mancia looks at what medieval Europeans left behind -- art, writings, artifacts, institutions, manuscripts, buildings, etc. -- in order to understand how they experienced their religion, and, thereby, how they understood themselves. In her research, Mancia focuses on the devotional culture of medieval monasteries in the 11th and 12th centuries. Some of her courses stem from her research interests (e.g., courses on medieval Christianity or on the history of emotions), but she also teaches courses on wider subjects of medieval and early modern history. Outside of the History Department, as the director of the Studies in Religion program, Prof. Mancia teaches several religion courses. Prof. Mancia is also a lecturer at The Met Cloisters, the branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art dedicated to the study of medieval art.
