Project

A medieval Stylome? Exploring the Universal Stylome Hypothesis in medieval prose.

In this project I will further explore the applicability of the Stylome Hypothesis in medieval literature:1. I will apply computational stylometry to medieval prose. Because so many (anonymous) medieval prose texts survive, stylometric techniques for authorship attribution in prose are highly relevant. The proposed case study targets religious prose (13th/14th century) from Brabant.2. Throughout medieval Europe, a lot of Latin literature was produced. I propose to extend my research to Latin, via the original case study of the Flemish monks (11th century) who were attracted by English nobility to write Latin biographies.
