Germanic Philology

The research group on Germanic philology focuses both on research and didactic activities dedicated to medieval Germanic cultures and literatures (in particular medieval German, Scandinavian, and English languages and literatures). Contents are presented through an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective, by means of text-critical methodologies, historical linguistics, rhetorical and stylistic studies. The main fields of research of the group are the following: Vernacular literatures in the Germanic Middle Ages, Paleography, Codicology and Book History from countries with a Germanic linguistic and literary tradition; Textual criticism within medieval manuscript traditions; Digital scholarly editing; Intertextuality and connections between Germanic traditions and Latin, Romance and other vernacular traditions; Text-image correlation in medieval codicology.
