Louise joined us on a  Jubilee Fellowship, sponsored by the English Province of the Congregation of Jesus, in 2018/19, working on an article on deification and union in the Middle English translation of Marguerite Porete’s Mirror of Simple Souls. This is part of a larger project she  is carrying out, involving the close analysis of translated texts both by and about female mystics, to reveal whether, and if so, how, the English translators brought the central concepts of this new mysticism, such as ‘union with God’ and ‘deification’, into line with the English Anchoritic tradition.

In 2019 she became our Director of Studies. She is also College Lecturer and Full Member of the Theology and Religion Faculty, Oxford University.
