Some specific theme's discussed in his research are: views on purity and impurity, violence and reconciliation, the human body, eating and drinking, paganism and magic, religion and ritual, confession and penance. With Ludger Körntgen (Mainz) he leads a project that deals with editing early medieval handbooks for confessors.
