Riccardo Saccenti completed his PhD in Philosophy at the University of Pisa in May 2008. He has been post-doctoral research fellow of the Université Nancy 2, the Medieval Institute of the University of Notre Dame, and the Istituto di Storia dell’Europa Mediterranea (CNR). He has been fellow of the Fondazione per le Scienze Religiose Giovanni XXIII in Bologna. He has researched the moral discourse between 12th and early 13th centuries, focusing on the writings of Peter Lombard, Stephen Langton, Philip the Chancellor, and Hugh of Saint Cher. His major works concern the medieval theories of free will, natural law, the sacraments and the early reception of Peter Lombard’s Sentences. On the project, he will be examining the still unedited and unpublished writings by John of La Rochelle and the manuscript tradition of book IV of the Summa fratris Alexandri.
