Claire LaBrecque has a PhD on Late Gothic-Early Renaissance pilgrimage architecture in France from Laval University. Her research and publications have revolved around the production and usages of art and architecture (royal commissioning, artistic expression of the cult of saints, and visual perception in the context of pilgrimage) between 1200 and 1600.

LaBrecque's current research project is focused on pre-modern European stained glass (c.1150 to 1750) in Canadian collections.
