Research in the archives (mainly little known ones from Eastern Europe), the study of the manuscripts, the digital edition of the texts and the development of new IT tools for our field will be key components of our project, contributing to a better understanding of a hidden part of European intellectual history.
Our project is built upon a strategy promoting erudition (codicology, palaeography, textual criticism), an interdisciplinary scientific approach, and exchange and dialogue between scholars from Western and Eastern Europe.
The THESIS project will therefore focus on the Prologues, one of the most important parts of these writings.

What is the importance of a Sentences commentary (the modern Ph D) in the development of a individual intellectual career during the late Middle Ages?What are the cultural exchanges between secular masters, monks and friars?How do the religious orders constitute an important factor in the formation of a network for the transfer of knowledge in the universities?
