Elliott D. Wise completed a B.A. and M.A. in Art History at Brigham Young University in 2007 and 2009, respectively.  In 2016 he received a Ph.D. in Art History from Emory University, studying the Northern Renaissance as his major field and medieval art as his minor field.  He spent a semester at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands and a year in New York City as a fellow at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.  His dissertation explores the affinity between vernacular mystical literature in the Low Countries and panel paintings by Rogier van der Weyden (c. 1399–1464) and Robert Campin (c. 1375–1445).  His research and publications focus on the devotional function of late medieval and early modern art.  In particular, he is interested in art and liturgy, representations of the Eucharistic Christ and the Virgin Mary, and the visual culture of the great mendicant and monastic orders.
