Byzantine Postdoctoral Fellow
Nathanael Aschenbrenner recently finished his PhD in History at Harvard on the politics of imperial thought of the fifteenth-century Mediterranean. His research combines intellectual and political history to examine how Europeans used ideas of empire to negotiate the boundaries of their communities and to shape a distinctive European identity between medieval and early modern Europe. In addition to his work on late medieval empire and identity, he has also published on the reception of Byzantine ceremony in early modern polemics and is editing a volume on the history of Byzantine Studies between 1500 and 1800.
