Helen Rawlings’ research focuses on the religious culture of Spain in the early modern period and the phenomenon of Spain's seventeenth-century decline. Her approach is inter-disciplinary and incorporates historical, literary and artistic sources of evidence. She has written three books: one on the role of the Church in shaping Spanish society in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries (2002), another on the historical legacy of the Spanish Inquisition (2005) and a third on the historical discourse that has informed the debate on the decline of Spain from the sixteenth century to the present day (2012).
