Ordered Universe Project secures AHRC funding

The Ordered Universe Project has secured funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council, UK (AHRC) for four years (almost £1million). This allows the project to employ two post-doctoral assistants, Dr Sigbjørn Sønnesyn and Dr John Bissell. Sigbjørn will be based at Durham and will take the leading role in preparing the editions and English translations of Grosseteste’s scientific works, starting with the De liberalibus artibus and the De generatione sonorum. John will be based in Oxford, the other hub of the project, and will lead in the functional analyses of the texts, and the scientific questions that emerge from the elucidation of Grosseteste’s treatises.
