Walter Simons
I am a historian of the Middle Ages. In my research, I examine how religious movements of the era relate to changes in the social and cultural environment, with special attention to the beguines and beghards, the Mendicant orders, and the regular canons. I also work on the history of the Low Countries, urban history, gender, mysticism, and historical methodology. My non-professional interests are in the history of late medieval and renaissance art, the two world wars, and modern fiction literature (American, British, Flemish/Dutch, French).
