Peter Goddard is interested in the early modern pursuit of salvation, especially the routes taken by the diverse programs of Catholic reform. His work engages mission history (Jesuit; Capuchin; Recollect; Huguenot/French reformed), mystics and martyrs, as well as Reformation era theologians, reformers and thinkers. The two PhD students under his direction are presently researching 17th-century French preaching and 16th-century French religious war pamphlet literature; he advises MA students currently engaged in studies of the mystical aspects of J-J Surin and J-P Camus, and the just war theory of Sepulveda.

Goddard also teaches the Modern Historiography graduate seminar (Hist*6020 at the University of Guelph), in addition to the first-year early modern history course and French and Reformation history courses at the undergraduate level.
