Expertise summary

Dr White's research interests combine law, history, and religion, particularly the historical development of English ecclesiastical law, Common Law, and the courts of equity in the medieval period. Broadly, her research looks at the intersection of law and religion through the works of the canon (ecclesiastical) lawyers of twelfth- and thirteenth-century England.

Her upcoming research is an interdisciplinary project examining the writings of these lawyers to bring a new perspective to the church/state debate, exploring how interconnected different legal traditions were in solving disputes on local to international levels. She can also comment on court procedure and litigation.
