Andrea Wenz is an historian of Early Modern Europe, specializing in the history of early modern Italy and the Protestant Reformation. Her current book manuscript, Ochino’s Exile and the Composition of an International Reformation, examines the publications of the Italian Catholic preacher, Bernardino Ochino, turned Protestant reformer to explore how issues of exile and mobility facilitated religious change in the sixteenth century.
