Gavin Fort

Gavin Fort is currently working on the definition and development of a religious proxy in the Middle Ages. How was it possible for one person to do a work and for another to receive the benefit? Some suffered for others, some went on pilgrimage for others. Many understood that, as the body of Christ, all members share in the benefits of others.

His previous work analyzed the employment of the past paradise in the context of successive medieval monastic reform movements.

In many ways, then, he is interested in profound human emotions like empathy (proxy) and nostalgia (paradise).
