Professor of medieval literature at the Universities of Lausanne and Neuchâtel, he wrote his thesis on the work and life of Joseph Bédier (Joseph Bédier écrivain et philologue, Droz, 1997). Author of academic books such as La Voix des clercs (on the 13th-Century dits), Les Mots sous les notes (on Romain Rolland and music) or Guillaume d’Orange ou la naissance du héros médieval, he has also written a novel La Mer illusoire (L’Age d’Homme, 2006) and musical compositions, like an opera for children about Alice in the Wonderland (1986). An expert in medieval history and how the Middle Ages has been perceived in modernity, he contributed to the edition of Charles-Albert Cingria’s complete works whose two first volumes were published in 2011.
