William J. Courtenay, Ph.D. (1967), Harvard, is the Charles Homer Haskins Professor of Medieval History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He has published extensively in the areas of medieval intellectual history and the history of universities. Among his recent books are Schools and Scholars in Fourteenth-Century England (Princeton, 1987) and Parisian Scholars in the Early Fourteenth Century (Cambridge, 1999).
The primary market will be libraries of research universities around the world, research institutes in Europe, and most libraries with manuscript or pre-modern research collections. Secondary but important markets will be scholars working in history of universities; late medieval social history; French history; church history for the European Continent; local church history, especially in France; the history of the papacy; and medieval intellectual history.
'Like its predecessor, this will be an indispensable tool to anyone studying the university, its personnel, and their careers for many years to come.'
Christopher Ocker, Sixteenth Century Journal, 2005.
