My interests are centred on medieval religious beliefs, traditions and practices, and on religious institutions. I write about medieval monasticism, including mendicant orders; the Crusades and the Crusader States; interactions between Latin and Greek Orthodox Christendom; pilgrimage; food and diet in the Middle Ages.   

PhD Supervision Interests

Professor Jotischky welcomes potential supervision in any topic concerning the Crusades and the Crusader States, especially but not exclusively with reference to religious, cultural and intellectual life. Topics in western medieval religious history, especially monasticism and mendicancy, are also weclomed.
