The Cambridge Centre for the Study of Platonism

 
Scholar in Residence - Monserrat Cabrera Zapata

Monserrat Cabrera Zapata is based at the School for Advanced Studies in Social Studies (École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales - EHESS) in Paris, where she works under the supervision of Professor Pierre-Antoine Fabre in the department of “Sciences Sociales des Religions”. Her research is centred upon the philosophical role of the body in mid to late medieval Christianity as well as its place in religious practice, with a concentration on the way mystic experiences shape religious communities and belief systems.

During her time in the Centre for the Study of Platonism, she’s studying the dialogue of affective mysticism inspired by St Bernard and speculative mysticism, strongly influenced by Neoplatonism, within the Friends of God’s theology. Her visit to the Centre nourishes her otherwise mostly anthropo-historical work with a strong philosophical perspective and curiosity for the platonic heritage within the religious and academic communities.
