Dr Giles Gasper

Giles Gasper’s research interests are in the Crusades, the historiography of the Middle Ages, and Medieval intellectual history (11th–13th centuries) particularly in the development of theology. He has written extensively on Anselm of Canterbury, including Anselm of Canterbury and His Theological Inheritance (2004) and papers on various aspects of Anselm’s thought, career and posthumous reputation. He is currently working on a study of Anselm in the post-Reformation English church, and a study of biblical commentary on the story of the creation of light in the 12th and 13th centuries.
