Professor of Diplomatic
Old Indian Institute
Professor Sharpe's interests are broadly the history of medieval England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. He has a special concern with first-hand work on the primary sources of medieval history, including palaeography, diplomatic and the editorial process, as well as the historical and legal contexts of medieval documents. He is general editor of the Corpus of British Medieval Library Catalogues and has published recently on medieval books and libraries before 1540 and on the Latin writers of Great Britain and Ireland. He is currently working on writs and writ-charters in eleventh- and twelfth-century England, preparing editions of the charters of William II and Henry I. Saints' lives and cults, especially those of the Celtic churches, have long been an interest.
