Research and Teaching Interests

Professor Euler specializes in the cultural, religious, and intellectual history of early modern Europe from a transnational and comparative approach, with particular emphasis on the history of England and Switzerland. In her book, Couriers of the Gospel: England and Zurich, 1531–1558 (Zurich, 2006), she examined the connections between England and Zurich during the Protestant Reformation. In addition to shedding new light on the transnational nature of the Reformation, the book also contributed to the study of interactions between cultural communities and networks in the early modern period. More recent publications include a study of English translations of works by Martin Luther published in Tudor England and an analysis of the eucharistic theology of the Zurich reformers, Huldrych Zwingli and Heinrich Bullinger. Professor Euler’s current research involves the history of schools and universities in late medieval and early modern Europe. She teaches courses on medieval civilization, Renaissance and Reformation Europe, and the history of England.
