Richard Allington


My dissertation is on crusading piety in Rome and the Papal States from 1187-1291. This work examines the intersection of spiritual warfare on behalf of the crusades with thirteenth century popular piety and the growth of the political power of the Papal States. I make use of narrative histories and hagiographical and liturgical sources as well as relevant material culture.

I received my B.A. in History from Christendom College in 2011. In my free time I enjoy reading literature and philosophy and playing most sports, especially tennis and volleyball.

Higher purpose. Greater good.
