I am currently working as a research assistant at the Cologne based project “Edition of the Frankish Capitularies”. My main research interest is the manuscript culture of the Early Middle Ages and especially the manuscripts of Roman law. Futhermore I am very interested in palaeography, particularly in Tironian notes.

Two late medieval manuscripts have been rediscovered in the library of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe in Weimar in 2018. The paper gives, for the first time, a complete codicological and paleographical analysis of both manuscripts, presents a medieval owner and, last but not least, identifies the works contained in both codices.
Review of types of scribal interaction between Hittite Anatolia and Syria and first steps towards a taxonomy of the sorts of contexts under which new sign-forms might have made their way into the Hittite cuneiform sign-repertoire.
The Center for Digital Theology and the Carolingian Canon Law (CCL) Project will collaborate to develop a Transcription-Paleographic and Editing Notation (T-PEN) Tool. Using digitized images of medieval manuscripts, this tool will assist scholars in the transcription of such sources and will allow automatic insertion of markup of textual features during the transcription process. T-PEN will be a new research tool in the CCL, permitting any number of scholars to submit their transcriptions of unpublished texts of early medieval canon law. Moreover, T-PEN will assist the CCL in maintaining quality control of transcriptions, as it will supply continuous comparison of manuscript image and the transcriber’s work in a transparent display. It supports easy and immediate insertion of annotations (paleographic, discursive, and bibliographic), insertion of TEI P5 markup according to project protocols and validation against the schema during the transcription process.

Currently studying the relationship between the process of secularization and the development of ideas in defense of religious tolerance between the second half of the eighteenth century and the first decades of the nineteenth century in the Luso-Brazilian world, and the development of the Enlightenment in this context.
Reviews arguments for identifying Shakespeare’s handwriting to the handwriting of Addition IIc in the Sir Thomas More ms. and, by reference to the concept of a control as the indispensable requirement for such comparison, finds the arguments not only instances of special pleading, but a failure to satisfy this fundamental requirement. Urges agnosticism about the identification.
