Anne-Julie LAFAYE

Anne-Julie Lafaye is currently a post-doctoral fellow in Ireland for the “Monastic Ireland: Landscape and Settlement” project, which is led by the architecture and art history department of Trinity College Dublin and the Discovery Programme. A medieval archeologist, she is interested in the monuments and landscapes of religious orders in medieval Europe, in particular those of Irish mendicant orders (thirteenth to sixteenth centuries). Her current research notably explores the role of monasticism in the formation of the medieval and early modern Irish landscape, as well as the spatial organization of mendicant convents and the practical and liturgical uses of the convent church and buildings.
