Attilio Stella

Attilio Stella est invité au LIER-FYT du 3 au 17 mars 2024 dans le cadre du projet FoNTES - Fostering innovative training in the use of European legal sources.

Attilio Stella, PhD in Medieval History at the University of Trento – Istituto storico italo-germanico (2014), is a full-time researcher at the University of Verona. He studied at the Ecole Normale Superieure de Paris, rue d’Ulm (2012-13) and worked as an Early Stage Researcher at Tel Aviv University for the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Itn project “Power and Institutions in Medieval Islam and Christendom” (2013-16), and as a research fellow at the University of St Andrews, in the ERC-funded project “Civil law, Common law, Customary law” (2017-21). His research is inspired by methods derived from history, law, and anthropology, and explores topics such as the relations between law and custom, in particular feudal law and feudal customs in the Western European tradition; lordship, rural societies, and social change in northern Italy from the eleventh to the fourteenth centuries.

He is the author of the monographs Ai margini del contado (Firenze University Press, 2022) and The “Libri Feudorum” (The ‘Books of fiefs’) (Brill, 2023). He is currently the Principal Investigator of the project “Communities and Custom in the European Legal Systems”, funded by the EU through the Ministero dell’Università e della Ricerca. The project explores social, legal, and intellectual changes in Western Europe (Italy, France, England) in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries through a threefold comparison – between different regions, between different sources and scribal practices, and between different historiographies.
