Christina is a doctoral candidate in History of Christianity. She specializes in the medieval Christian mysticism and her dissertation is on Angela of Foligno, a thirteenth century Italian laywoman. She argues that Angela of Foligno advances a theology of divine passibility, a radical idea during the medieval period. Through her dissertation, Christina seeks to lift voices that have historically been overlooked or silenced.
