Portriat of Christine McCann

Chrstine McCann joined the faculty of the Department of History and Political Science at Norwich University in 1998. Today she directs the history program and specializes in the history of Medieval Europe and western Christian monasticism.

McCann earned her BA in history with high honors at Indiana University and her MA and PhD in medieval European history at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

At Norwich, she teaches surveys of ancient Greece and Rome, and medieval European history, and more specialized courses in the later Roman Empire, early and medieval Christianity, and the Crusades. She has been recognized for her teaching, scholarship, and service at Norwich with Charles A. Dana Category I Grants and has also won the Board of Fellows Faculty Development Prize.

Prof. McCann has overseen a number of history honors theses and also mentored two history majors’ seminar papers that later won university-wide competitions for best student research paper. Her research focuses on Christian spiritual mentoring in late antiquity.

She has published articles in journals such as Studia Monastica, Studia Patristica, American Benedictine Review, and Cistercian Studies Quarterly. Prof. McCann is working on a monograph tentatively entitled Incentives to Virtue: St. Jerome as a Spiritual Mentor.

She has spearheaded (pun intended) several simulations of ancient Greek hoplite battle on Norwich’s Upper Parade Ground.
