Research and Teaching Interests

Professor Euler specializes in the cultural, religious, and social history of late medieval and early modern Europe, with a particular emphasis on early modern England.  Her doctoral research and book, Couriers of the Gospel: England and Zurich, 1531-1558 (Zurich, 2006), examined the connections between England and Zurich, Switzerland during the Protestant Reformation.  More recent publications include a study of the dissemination of Martin Luther's works in Tudor England and an analysis of the Eucharistic theology of the Zurich reformers.  Her current research project is on local grammar schools in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century England.  She teaches courses on medieval civilization, Renaissance and Reformation Europe, the history of England, and historical methodology.
