Research Interests: 

I’m currently focusing on some of the theoretical and methodological issues involved in the second HERA sub project at Leeds, ‘Missionaries and changing views of the Other ninth to twelfth centuries,’ before working on the missionary texts themselves, especially the chain of texts from Rimbert through Adam of Bremen to Helmond of Bosau.  Also, Regino of Prüm, Peter Damian and the various uses of the Donation of Constantine.

First CMRP meeting

The first project meeting was first of all an opportunity for the participants of the project to get to know each other. Apart from that some basic organisational issues had to be talked about, especially concerning the cooperative nature of the project. (short report to be put on the website soon).
