Biography

I graduated in general history in 1997, defended my PhD in 2001 and was granted the tile of Docent in 2004, all at the University of Tampere, Finland. In 2012 I finished my doctoral degree in law, and I was appointed as Associated professor (tenure track) at the School of History, Culture and Arts Studies at the University of Turku, and in 2017 my appointment was confirmed as full professor in European and World History in the University of Turku.



Research
My main research interest concern medieval papacy and ecclesiastical
history but also sins, crimes, law and everyday life. Therefore, I have spent
over a decade in the Vatican Secret Archives. I have published various books and
articles for example about the "papal tribunal of conscience" (the Apostolic
Penitentiary) and the highest ecclesiastical tribunal, the Sacra Romana Rota. In
addition to institutional history, the papal source material has offered
interesting glimpses of everyday life such as the story of the broken thumb of
the provost of Turku, Paulus Scheel, or of the illegitimate children of Turku
canons.

 

In addition to the Middle Ages, I have also been studying the inter-war
period, more precisely, the papal diplomacy during the pontificates of Benedict
XV and Pius IX. My main figure here has been Eugenio Pacelli (later Pope Pius
XII), who was papal nuncius in Germany in 1917-29. This interest was part of a
research project financed by the Academy of Finland, Religion, Politics, and
Nationalism
: The Vatican's Foreign Policy and Nationalistic Tensions in
Inter-War Europe.

 


Teaching

I supervise masteral students in European and World History (both masteral seminars and gradu-afternoons), teach the course Keskusteleva historia (discussing history) and different courses on mediaeval and early modern studies.
