Current Research or Professional Activities

Angelika is currently finishing her dissertation in the area of Italian Philology on a religious Italian
Renaissance manuscript from 1460, incl. curating its study edition. She has worked as a language teacher,
translator, interpreter, administrative and research assistant, as well as for a theological journal (AUSS).

reading/listening to them and thereby getting to know people (ancient or modern). Happily married to
Denis (a church historian.... even more stories there!) and mother of one little daughter, she relaxes
