Biography: I was drawn to the Lazarus Project with my interest in medieval manuscripts.  I wanted to work with manuscripts and analyze illumination of Gospel texts.  My goal is to identify a link between angelic iconography of angels in Irish Illumination and their use as a vehicle for divine inspiration for the scribes.  I intend to go study and do research at Trinity College Dublin over the summer of 2014 trying to connect the links with the hypothesis.
