In addition to publishing numerous articles on early medieval intellectual and political culture in Réflexions Historiques, Early Medieval Europe, The Historian, The Heroic Age, and other scholarly journals, Dr. Stofferahn has co-edited Discovery and Distinction in the Early Middle Ages: Studies in Honor of John J.
