Christie Pavey
Postgraduate Research Student 

I am a postgraduate research student in History at Royal Holloway, as part of the project “Connected Clerics: Building a Universal Church in the Late Antique West (380-640 CE)” led by David Natal. Before coming to Royal Holloway, I studied Classics and History at the University of Kentucky and taught Latin for a number of years.

Research interests

My research focuses on late antique North Africa, particularly under Augustine bishop of Hippo and Aurelius bishop of Carthage. I am examining the role of the church and bishops in changing political structures in communities in North Africa, with special attention to inscriptions, archaeology, and the texts of the African church councils.

My current research examines how grants of privilege over land and people made by rulers in modern-day Germany and Italy—referred to as charters or royal diplomas—inform our understanding of the ways in which the new dynasties that emerged in the wake of the Carolingian Empire understood and represented their own past to their followers, rivals and allies.
