Kate Koppy deposited The Findern Codex and the Blog In the Middle: Understanding Middle English Vernacular Manuscripts through the Lens of Social Media in the Twenty-First Century in the group Medieval Studies on Humanities Commons 1 week ago
This paper articulates a model for examining medieval vernacular multi-text codices which
is based on the dynamics we see in the contemporary use of social media, particularly
personal blogs. Both media democratise the use of an existing specialised technology,
accelerate the development of this technology, and serve as vehicles for the…[Read more]

The Middle Commentary on Aristotle’s Poetics by the Andalusian philosopher Ibn Rushd (d. 1198) has been treated by commentators as wide-ranging as Borges, Renan, and Kilito as an exemplary case of the failure of translation. Critics who presume Ibn Rushd’s failure often concentrate on his rendering of Aristotle’s tragedy and comedy by praise…[Read more]
Marc Philip Saurette deposited Rhetorics of Reform: Abbot Peter the Venerable and the Twelfth-Century Rewriting of the Cluniac Monastic Project in the group Medieval Studies on Humanities Commons 3 months ago
This dissertation considers how Peter the Venerable, the abbot of Cluny from 1122 to 1156, implemented reform through a textual program. Peter’s abbacy witnessed a period of fundamental reconstruction, in which not only the practices of Cluniac monasticism, but also its mentality and institutional ethos underwent dramatic change. This period e…[Read more]
This is a preprint draft of the chapter appearing in the De Gruyter volume, Friendship in the Middle Ages and Early Modern Age.
Clark Ashton Smith—unlike the more famous H.P. Lovecraft—engaged with the medieval as a setting for his fiction. Lovecraft admired classical Roman civilization and the eighteenth century, but had little time for medieval themes. As Brantley Bryant has related, Lovecraft wrote contemptuously that the Middle Ages was a period that “snivel[ed] along…[Read more]

‘Passio Iudeorum Pragensium’, a late fourteenth–century pogrom narrative from Bohemia, provides many unique insights into the medieval tradition of pogrom narratives. It is preserved in the form of a number of related but distinct textual units that allow us to examine the discursive nature of texts such as these. This discursiveness is illus…[Read more]

Yet, these sources composed in Latin, Czech, German and Hebrew pose many problems. Not only are there few historians who can…[Read more]
