Amy K. Bosworth: Research & Interests
Dr. Bosworth’s research concentrates on the uses of hagiography (the stories of the saints) in the Carolingian era. In particular, how authors sought to change and/or influence their community’s place in local and “national” political and ecclesiastical politics. Her most recent work focuses on the writings of the monk Heiric of Auxerre, specifically his Life of Saint Germanus and Miracles of Saint Germanus, placing these collections in the context secular and religious worlds of the later ninth century. Dr. Bosworth presented one aspect of her research at the 47th International Congress on Medieval Studies at Western Michigan University.
