Stefania Tutino is an intellectual and cultural historian of post-Reformation Catholicism. She has published on the relationship between conscience and law in Catholic political thought, on the historical role played by the Society of Jesus in early modern Europe, on the Roman Inquisition, and on the intellectual and cultural implications of Catholic moral theology. In addition, she is interested in the methodological premises of historiography and in the philosophical and theoretical nature of history as simultaneously an inquiry into the truth of the past and an essentially narrative enterprise. Her research has been supported by several grants and awards, including, most recently, an individual faculty fellowship from the National Endowment for the Humanities, a Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome, and a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowship.
