Research interests:
His research has always centered on the history of ideas. He has worked on the history of political thought, on historiography (especially Church history), and on the mechanics of tradition. His work began in the early Middle Ages (western Europe), and he retains a continuing enthusiasm for research in that period. Currently, He is studying the history of Christian art in western Europe from the beginning until (arguably) its death in the nineteenth century
