Katie Ann-Marie Bugyis

  • Recovers evidence of Benedictine nuns' liturgical functions, including preaching, reading the gospel, and hearing confessions and pronouncing absolution
  • Reconstructs the history of Benedictine nuns through examination of their own liturgical documents
  • Offers a multidisciplinary approach to this history, drawing on methods from liturgical studies, codicology, paleography, and diplomatics
