Lee Palmer Wandel is WARF Michael Baxandall and Linda and Stanley Sher Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin. She is the author, most recently of Reading Catechisms, Teaching Religion. Currently she is following two lines of inquiry, on the Eucharist and the reconceptualization of modes of knowledge in the sixteenth century, and on Mercator’s conception of Creation.
