Hilary Bogert-Winkler is assistant professor of liturgy at the School of Theology. Prior to her arrival in Sewanee, she served as director of pastoral studies at Montreal Diocesan Theological College and was affiliate faculty in the School of Religious Studies at McGill University. She studied history and religious studies as an undergraduate at Western Kentucky University, after which she attended Harvard Divinity School and Yale Divinity School for her seminary education. She was raised up for the priesthood in the Diocese of Kentucky, and upon ordination served at both the parish and diocesan levels in the Diocese of Western Massachusetts, focusing primarily on youth ministry. While in New England, she completed her Ph.D. in history at the University of Connecticut. Her academic interests lie in the ways politics and religion intersected in early modern Britain and Ireland, particularly in how those intersections showed up in the liturgy.
