Sinéad O’Sullivan was an undergraduate at University College Cork and postgraduate there and at Universität Konstanz and Oxford University. She was a Rhodes Scholar at St Anne’s College, Oxford, completing a D.Phil on Carolingian and Ottonian intellectual history. She joined the School of History and Anthropology at Queen’s in 2005.
Her research focuses on the transmission of learning in the early Middle Ages. Her main focus is on early medieval glosses and their importance. She has published two books on the reception of Late Antique authors: the first on Prudentius (Brill), the second on Martianus Capella in the series Corpus Christianorum Continuatio Mediaevalis (Brepols). She has also co-edited a book on Martianus Capella and Carolingian Scholarship (Brepols) and worked on a digital edition as part of an international collaborative effort. Her current work investigates the significance of glosses for mainstream cultural and intellectual history.
She is happy to receive enquiries from students in any area of early medieval intellectual and cultural history and especially from those interested in medieval glosses and manuscript studies.
