PUBLICATIONS

Books

Letters from and to Katerina Lemmel (1516-1522), co-authored with Corine Schleif and Anne Simon. Expected publication date 2013. First complete edition of the letters Katerina Lemmel with an English translation.

KATERINA’S WINDOWS: Donation and Devotion, Art and Music, as Heard and Seen in the Writings of a Birgittine Nun is being co-authored together with Corine Schleif. The study centers on the 1998 (re-)discovery of sixty-two letters written by Katerina Lemmel, a Nuremberg widow who entered the abbey of Maria Mai in 1516 and rebuilt it using her own resources and the donations of her friends and relatives. Katerina's letters provide glimpses into the material culture of monastic life, views of a woman's struggles on behalf of other women, and a close-up look at the interconnected workings of art, music, liturgy, and literature. As micro history, the letters provide an insider's insights into the spiritual economies and donation practices that were later scorned by Protestant reformers. The writings also offer an eye-witness account of the social challenges that erupted in violent clashes during the Revolution of 1525. The first publication consisting of an English translation with extensive analysis and commentary. In addition to the first complete edition of the letters in collaboration with Corine Schleif and Anne Sime an edited volume of essays by specialists from many fields is also planned. Reviews by Roger Rosewell in Vidimus 36 (January 2010); Jeffrey Chipps Smith in Renaissance Quarterly 63 (2010), 612-13; Hans van Miegroet in Choice (April 2010); Stanley Weed in The Medieval Review (October 2010); Megan Cassidy-Welch in Burlington Magazine 152 (November 2010), 746; Judith Oliver in Speculum 86 (2011), 546-48; Pia F.

Musikkulturen in Nürnberg vor der Reformation (ca. 1450-1524). [Musical Cultures in Nuremberg before the Reformation ca. 1450-1524] in progress
The study investigates ways in which diverse and overlapping cultures were constructed through music in the Late Middle Ages. It explores various pockets of society at different levels from street musicians to town pipers to choir boys to cantors and parish organists; and contexts from Jewish weddings to memorial masses and gala festivities for the arrival of the emperor or for high feast days commemorating the city’s patron saints and important relics.

Interdisciplinary Electronic Project

Co-director with Corine Schleif of the international multimedia project “Opening the Geese Book,” the aim of which is to produce an interactive electronic facsimile of the early sixteenth-century gradual known as the “Geese Book” (New York, Pierpont Morgan Library, M. 905). This pilot project is a collaboration of the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, the School of Art of the Herberger Institute of Design and the Arts of Arizona State University, the Pierpont Morgan Library, Bavarian Radio Corporation, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, the Staatsarchiv Nuremberg, Stadtarchiv Nuremberg and the University of Toronto.

PANEL AND CONFERENCE ORGANIZATION

Manuscripts Changing Hands - Handschriften wechseln von Hand zu Hand,” workshop at the Herzog August Bibliothek, Wolfenbüttel, 2012, co organized together with Corine Schleif
It is no accident that the issues discussed come at a time when electronic tablets that temporarily carry information are coming to replace physical books that are handed from one hand to another. The premise of the symposium was the notion that books, particularly medieval manuscripts, were conceived to move from one set of hands to the next. Holding a book promised possibilities and possessing a book could imply power. Handling was a special privilege: During the early centuries of Christianity, codices revealed and represented Christ himself. As such they connoted the shift to Christianity, they demanded special reverence, and exuded the aura of the holy, sometimes inviting but likewise also forbidding direct touch. Therefore books also functioned as sacred connectors, binding producers with consumers, gift givers with gift recipients, writers with readers, writers with writers, and readers with readers. Books linked many generations and were intended to endure. Hands attached messages, which today may be (re)discovered by contemporary scholars: colophons, prayers, scribal notes, glosses, corrections, clever plays on words, simple or elaborate self-representations of makers, sponsors or even readers, prints pasted in and folios added by later hands. Hands have also left traces in the form of penciled names of users, threats, curses, changes, erasures, worn and torn pages, finger prints, and dirt. Manuscripts help to establish empathies, form identities, and negotiate diachronic communities. Later generations of collectors, librarians and makers of facsimiles made efforts to preserve these hand made, handed down objects in the age of mass reproduction. Fourteen presentations about manuscripts from many regions of Europe were given by invited scholars from six countries: Patrizia Carmassi, Madeline Caviness, William Diebold, Nancy van Deusen, Matthias Eifler, Barbara Haggh Huglo, Judith Oliver, Bruno Reudenbach, Kathryn Rudy, Volker Schier, Corine Schleif, Gabriela Signori, and Alison Stones. Guests and members of the scholarly community at the Herzog August Bibliothek participated in the discussions.
