A doctoral candidate in history at the Université de Montréal, Canada, Ariane Généreux studies the phenomenon of religious visionaries in seventeenth-century France.
Her research on the history of early modern spirituality pays particular attention to the interplay between contemplation and action, and aims to expose the multiple uses to which the mental images of the century’s mystics were put in realizing missionary endeavors and developing new forms of devotion.
Ariane holds a master’s degree in art history from the Université du Québec à Montréal, where her thesis examined the circulation and use in New France of paintings on a copper support.
