Professor Mark Clark

During his time in the UK, Professor Clark will be working on manuscripts in situ and in collaboration with Professor Nicholas Vincent of the University of East Anglia and other British experts on Langton.

His discovery – in English libraries and in works attributed to Stephen Langton, famous for his role in Magna Carta – of Peter Lombard's lectures on the Bible, long considered by scholars to be lost, alters significantly what is known of Langton's career, and transforms our understanding of the development of the Parisian schools and curriculum at a crucial moment in the history of western thought.
