Lily Stewart is a doctoral student in Medieval Religious History. She focuses her studies on medieval perceptions and experiences of saints, sanctity, and the afterlife. Lily is interested in exploring how women, the poor, the disabled, and other marginalized groups fit within medieval structures of spirituality and devotion, and where (or whether) they were allocated space in various models of the afterlife. Before coming to Northwestern, she earned a post-baccalaureate certificate in post-classical Latin as a Mellon fellow at UCLA. She received her BA in Religious Studies from Scripps College. Lily’s advisors are Richard Kieckhefer and Barbara Newman.
