Francesca Tinti graduated at Bologna in 1995 and obtained her Ph.D. in History of the Medieval Church at the University of Padua in the year 2000. From 2000 to 2005 she worked in the ASNC Department as Research Associate for the ‘Prosopography of Anglo-Saxon England’ Project. She then moved back to the University of Bologna where she taught English Medieval History and started a new research project, financed by the Italian Ministry of Higher Education, on relations between England and Italy in the Early Middle Ages. In 2009 she took up a permanent position as Ikerbasque Research Professor at the University of the Basque Country (Spain). As well as prosopography, her research interests include early medieval religious history and pastoral care. She has published in particular on the church of Worcester and on the earliest English cartularies, which were produced at Worcester in the eleventh century. More recently her publications have focussed on the relations between Anglo-Saxon England and the papacy, paying special attention to the delivery of the archiepiscopal pallium and the origins of Peter’s pence.
