About the Author

Elizabeth Archibald is a Visiting Teaching Professor at the Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University. Her research focuses on early medieval education, medieval Latin, and the reception of classical texts in the Middle Ages.

William Brockliss is Assistant Professor of Classics at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. His research encompasses the interactions between literature and the natural environment, the history of classical pedagogy, and the classical tradition. The latter interest is reflected in his previous Yale Classical Studies volume, Reception and the Classics (Cambridge, 2011, edited with Pramit Chaudhuri, Ayelet Haimson-Lushkov and Katherine Wasdin).

Jonathan Gnoza is an adjunct instructor in the Medieval and Renaissance Center at New York University. He has previously contributed as a translator to The Virgilian Tradition: The First Fifteen Hundred Years (2008).
