Research on the form of medieval books against the background of intellectual history.

Erik Kwakkel (born in 1970) goes beyond the limits in his much-discussed research – both figuratively and literally. In his current research into social evolution and manuscript innovation in the twelfth century, he is working with a research group in the US that is exposing the roots of modern medicine. Interdisciplinary and international in approach, he describes his research as a hybrid between the spirit of history and the material world of the manuscript as a physical object.
