Brian FitzGerald
A scholar of medieval history, Brian FitzGerald's research interests are in the intellectual and religious culture of Europe from the twelfth to the fo­urteenth century. His first book, Inspiration and Authority in the Middle Ages: Prophets and their Critics from Scholasticism to Humanism (Oxford University Press, 2017) examined how medieval intellectuals in France, England, and Italy sought to understand and resolve competing claims of divine inspiration or prophecy. His other interests include medieval historical consciousness, Renaissance humanism, and relations between eastern and western Christianity. Dr. FitzGerald was a tutor in Harvard's History and Literature Program from 2016-2017, and currently teaches in the Humanities program and serves as Academic Dean at Magdalen College in New Hampshire.
