Maureen C. Miller, Chancellor’s Professor at the University of California, Berkeley, is a historian of medieval Europe with a particular interest in Italy. A recent past-president of the Medieval Academy of America, she earned her Ph.D. in 1989 from Harvard University, where she studied with the distinguished social and economic historian, David Herlihy. The author of three prize-winning monographs, she has utilized various forms of material culture—surviving rural churches, ecclesiastical and secular palaces, as well as liturgical vestments—to illuminate changes in the western Church and the culture of the secular clergy across the Middle Ages.
