Bernard GOWERS

Research Assistant

Bernard Gowers is a historian of medieval Latin Europe. His doctoral thesis was on Bishop Fulbert of Chartres (died 1028) and his circle of students, who were significant intellectual and ecclesiastical figures in eleventh-century West Francia. His work for Communication and Empire: Chines Empires in Comparative Perspective examines networks of educated churchmen with intellectual and political roles (the so-called literati), ranging across western Europe from the eleventh to thirteenth centuries, and in particular their letter-writing.
