Chair of Medieval German Literature and Linguistics
St Edmund Hall
I currently work on two projects which question the traditional late medieval / early modern division in Germany: The Nuns’ Network which is an edition of 1.800 letters from the convent of Lüne from between ca. 1455 and 1550 and a collection of the bilingual (Latin/Low German) devotional writing by Cistercian nuns between 1478 and 1550 (Medingen Manuscripts). Together with the Taylor Institution Library, I have been running a project Remembering the Reformation, focussing for the quincentenary of the German Reformation on Singing, Translating and Printing as key activities. This lives on in the “Taylor Edition Series One: Reformation Pamphlet”, an open access library of texts from the Oxford collections.
