Old English Literature
In my career to date as a researcher and critic, my most expansive publications have addressed Old English verse, while drawing frequently on ancillary fields such as Middle English (supported by Old French); Medieval Latin (as well as Greek and Latin scriptural tradition); manuscript study (both palaeography and codicology); patristics; Anglo-Saxon history; the Scholastic tradition; and textual criticism and bibliography. I should note my continuing work on the Middle English prose of John Trevisa and its Latin sources, undertaken with my emeritus colleague David C. Fowler, already yielding one published volume; my duties as chief editor of the comprehensive bibliography published annually in the journal Anglo-Saxon England by Cambridge University Press; my preparation of a cumulative, thirty-year Anglo-Saxon bibliography for the same publisher; and my continuing contributions to several research projects under the aegis of the Italian association SISMEL - La SocietÓ Internazionale per lo Studio del Medioevo Latino (Florence) - to which I was elected as a Fellow in 1999. These projects include participation in the development of a compendious encyclopedia of medieval Latin authors (Compendium Auctorum Latinorum Medii Aevi); the repertory TETRA, treating transmission-histories of medieval works in the tradition of the Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum inaugurated by Paul Oskar Kristeller (mainly addressing the classics); and the annual, thousand-page bibliography Medioevo Latino, now approaching its twenty-fifth year of production.
