Molly Lester

Graduate Student

Advisor: Helmut Reimitz

Interests: Late Antique and Early Medieval Europe, particularly the post-Roman West; late antique and early medieval Christianity; heresy and orthodoxy; Visigothic Iberia, religious identity and memory; early medieval church councils and canon law in the West.

Dissertation: My dissertation will investigate shifting conceptions of orthodoxy and heterodoxy in Visigothic Iberia during the sixth and seventh centuries, as well as how conversations and tensions over religious orthodoxy affected other aspects of Visigothic society. I also hope to eventually investigate the Carolingian inheritance of the Visigothic legacy.
