Megan Armstrong is a specialist on Early Modern Europe who has a particular interest in religion and political culture. She has published articles in the journals French Historical Studies and in I Quaderni Storici, and is the author of the monograph The Politics of Piety: Franciscan Preachers and the French Wars of Religion, 1560-1600 (Rochester, 2004). Armstrong is currently working on a new book project tentatively entitled De-Centring the Reformation: Franciscans and Catholic Expansionism, 1500-1700. This new project uses Franciscan missions in France, Palestine, Guatemala and New France to understand Catholic resiliency in the age of the German Reformation.
