Professor Anne Duggan is a General Editor of the Ashgate Series, Church, Faith and Culture in the Middle Ages. Her international reputation is such that she was elected a corresponding member of the Monumenta Germaniae Historica in 2002, and one French reviewer (2005) spoke of ‘her faultless erudition’ which ‘introduces the reader to the subtleties of canon law, to the richness of theology in the schools of Paris and Laon, to the novelties of the government and administration of Henry II, to the technical knowledge and the manner of life of the clerks of the court and to many other aspects of the life … of the twelfth century’.
Although Professor Anne Duggan is the leading expert on Thomas Becket her interests and expertise cover an extensive range of topics, from nobility and queenship to canon law; from manuscripts and diplomatic to liturgy and the cult of saints. In collaboration with teams of international scholars, her current research is focussed on three twelfth-century popes (Alexander III, Celestine III, Eugenius III) and she plans studies on a further three.
