Astrid Marner


I am a researcher specialised in the Christian culture of the medieval North. I mainly work with manuscripts and manuscript fragments in a text-centered approach.

My current project focuses on Old Norse/Latin bilingualism in medieval manuscripts. The project is funded by the European Commission through a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship (Horizon 2020) under grant agreement no 654147. Its title is "Tracing the Invisible. Old Norse and Latin in medieval manuscripts" with the acronym INVISIBILIA.

Before that, I was a member of the project "From manuscript fragments to book history" at the University of Bergen. This project was funded by Bergen Research Foundation (BFS). There, I was working on office lectionaries, which from Norway are only preserved as small fragments, and the Nidaros Ordinal in its various preserved form. This work is still going on.

Other research activities cover sermon preaching in medieval Iceland and Norway, fourteenth-century Skálholt as a cultural hub, the distribution and use of Peter Comestor's Historia scholastica in the North, and Grimr Holmsteinsson's Jóns saga baptista II.
