14.45-15.45 Sharing the experience of an ERC Starting Grant “How I got my ERC grant”


/ Monica Brinzei / CNRS / France

Monica Brinzei, researcher at IRHT (Institut de recherches et d'histoire des textes) from CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) in Paris. She was awarded an ERC Starting Grant in 2012: Theology, Education, Scholastic Institution and Scholars-network: dialogues between the University of Paris and the new Universities from Central and Eastern Europe during the Late Middle Ages. The THESIS project proposes a pioneering study of a coherent corpus of medieval manuscripts consisting of all the commentaries on the Sentences composed in Paris and in the new universities from Central Europe between 1350-1450. A Sentences commentary is a core component of the medieval academic curriculum, a collection of theses that scholars had to defend in the universities in order to obtain the title of master or doctor of theology; it is actually the unique equivalent of our modern PhD thesis.
