Associate Professor of History, Syracuse University
Albrecht Diem specializes in the history of late antique and early medieval monasticism. He has published on monastic rules, Columbanian monasticism, hagiography, gender and sexuality, and currently works on a number of editions of Latin monastic texts and a study on the construction of the past in early medieval monastic texts. He co-ordinates the Network for the Study of Late Antique and Early Medieval Monasticism, publishes an online bibliography on monastic studies, and works on the Monastic Manuscript Project which documents the manuscript transmission of early medieval monastic texts.
His tasks within the Hildemar Project include the revision of the Latin text, the preparation of an Index Fontium, html-coding, preparation of links to digitized manuscripts and co-ordinating the collaboration with the translators.
He translated or co-translated the chapters 1, 49, 58, 66, 67 and 69.
Julian Hendrix is a historian of early medieval Europe, with a particular emphasis on the Carolingian empire. His current research projects include the culture of commemoration in Carolingian monasticism and Hildemar of Corbie's Commentary on the Rule of Benedict. From 2009-2012, he oversaw the creation of the Reichenau-St Gall Virtual Library, which created a digital representation of the Carolingian collections of these two monasteries.
For the Hildemar Project, he has contributed translations of chapters 8-10, as well as serving as project manager.
