Advisor: Brad S. Gregory
Thomas Meyers studies intellectual and religious history in early modern Europe. His recent master's thesis, "From Sacred to Secular: English Thought in the Wake of the Vatican Decrees, 1864-1918", explored the origins of secular society in modern England. At Notre Dame, his focus has shifted to an earlier period, but he remains interested in similar themes. Specifically, he is interested in how individuals from the Reformation to the Enlightenment explored the intersection of faith and reason.
