Hildegund Müller

Hildegund Müller

Director of Undergraduate Studies and Associate Professor of Classics

A faculty fellow of the Nanovic and Medieval Institutes, Hildegund Müller is a specialist of late antique Latin literature, both poetry and prose, especially the Latin Church Fathers. She has published a critical edition of a part of Augustine’s Psalm Sermons (Enarrationes in Psalmos) for the CSEL series, as well as numerous studies on this and other late antique sermon collections. Professor Müller's interest in late antique homilies covers widely different aspects, such as their relation to classical rhetoric, their use of Biblical and other sources, the way they are shaped by improvisation and orality, and their Nachleben in the Middle Ages. Her other field of interest is the Latin Middle Ages, especially poetry and (early) exegesis. An associate professor of classics at Notre Dame, Professor Müller's favorite classical authors are Cicero and Horace.
