Her dissertation aimed to study the miracles dedicated to Santa Maria de Terena in the Cantigas de Santa Maria and to approach this theme in a musical, historical and political context. She had several research scholarships in the area of the Cantigas de Santa Maria at the Centre for the Study of the Sociology and Aesthetics of Music (CESEM), working under the supervision of Professor Manuel Pedro Ferreira. Currently, Mariana is doing her PhD in Music at the University of Cambridge, working under the supervision of Professor Susan Rankin. She has a PhD studentship from the Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (FCT). Her research concentrates on the development of an Iberian cult of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Late Middle Ages. Her main focus is the palaeographic, musical and liturgical study of the Western Iberian Offices for the main Blessed Virgin Mary feasts.
