Biography

My dissertation (2002) treated Parisian Book Illumination from around 1400. Since then I have studied medieval book illuminations in Swedish collections, illuminated manuscripts by the nuns in Vadstena Abbey, medieval parchment fragments and a medical scroll from the 15th C. The ongoing research concerns the Birgittine order and Vadstena Abbey, focusing the interior shape/design of the Abbey church and how the pictorial strategy was created for the different user groups. I am also involved in international networks on the Birgittine order, medieval nuns artistry and literacy and, iconography.
