As a postdoctoral researcher you will be responsible for one of the three subprojects within the European Research Council (ERC)-funded project Patristic Sermons in the Middle Ages (PASSIM). This project studies the medieval reception of the Latin sermons preached by the Early Church Fathers, through the first large-scale analysis of the formation and spread of patristic sermon collections in medieval Europe. The project is developing a digital network of manuscripts containing collections of patristic sermons. Building on this network, PASSIM pursues three lines of inquiry: the customisation of standard liturgical collections as indicative of individual purposes and contexts, the dynamic between transmission and popularity of patristic sermons, and pseudo-epigraphic sermons as revelatory of medieval perceptions of the Church Fathers.
