Biography

Benjamin Savill is a historian of earlier medieval Europe. His current research looks at the construction and performance of different ideas of the papacy beyond Rome, c. 500-c. 1100, with a particular focus on Anglo-Saxon England. He is especially interested in papal documentary culture and its reception, and its potential for historians undertaking comparative work on wider themes across the Latin west. He is now working on a monograph for publication with Oxford University Press.

Benjamin studied at University College London (BA 2010, MA 2012) and the University of Oxford (DPhil 2017), where he also taught at Wadham College, and worked with the Cult of Saints in Late Antiquity project. He was previously Royal Historical Society Centenary Fellow at the Institute of Historical Research (2016-17), and Gastwissenschaftler at the Göttingen Academy of Sciences (2015-16).
