Measuring the Miraculous

Author: Simon Lax

Type: Case Study, Teaching Development Grant


This project was conceived of by Drs. Charles West and Julia Hillner in order to gain both further information about what constituted a medieval miracle and also to establish the possibility of studying history through databases in this way. The project, which involved creating a database of medieval miracles, working in collaboration with a fellow student (funded separately by another body) Hannah Probert, will be accessible through the new Sheffield Medieval Portal and will also be connected to Undergraduate modules in medieval history.
