Assistant Professor of History John Eldevik presented a paper titled “Episcopal Authority and Scribal License: Charting the Lives of Ulrich of Augsburg in Late Ottonian Germany” at the 18th Biennial New College Conference on Medieval and Renaissance Studies, held March 8-10 at New College of Florida in Sarasota.
Eldevik discussed certain textual emendations made by an anonymous copyist in several manuscripts of the biography of the 10th-century bishop Ulrich of Augsburg (d. 973) and the implications of those revisions for understanding changing views of church-state relations in the early Middle Ages.
