Paul Vinhage

Ph.D. Candidate


Paul studies Latin grammars and literatures and how they interact with vernacular literate traditions from the Early Middle Ages. He is interested in the ways that scribes and scholars used manuscript technologies to transmit grammatical doctrine and literature to new vernacular and latinate audiences. He is now a sixth year PhD Candidate in the Medieval Studies Program and in the process of completing his dissertation "Scribal Technics in the Early Middle Ages". He has also studied at the University of Toronto and Rome with the Pontifical Institute for Medieval Studies, for which he is currently editing an Anonymous Latin Grammar found in Valenciennes MS 413. His teaching focuses on the commentary tradition throughout the Middle Ages broadly conceived.
