Richard of Poitiers Editorial Project



The objective of this research project is to provide the first complete study, critical edition and translation of the works of Richard of Poitiers.

Our research has four objectives:

  1. the identification, dating and analysis of extant manuscripts containing Richard's writings,

  2. the publication of a critical edition according to current standards,

  3. a study of Richard's reformulation of his literary and historiographical precedents, and

  4. the translation of the work from Latin into English in order to encourage wider access.
