Magdalena Rufin

Magdalena Rufin holds two Master’s degrees in Latin Philology and Indo-European Linguistics from the University of Innsbruck.
Her research is focused on codicology, palaeography and Renaissance humanist poetry. Her primary research projects include the cataloguing of medieval and early modern manuscripts (at the Special Collections Department of the Universitäts- und Landesbibliothek Tirol, at the Tiroler Landesmuseum Ferdinandeum and the library of the Innsbruck Servite Convent) as well as research on the humanist poetry collection “Codex Fuchsmagen”, creating a digital edition accompanied by a translation and a commentary.
In her appointment at the LBI since September 2023, she is mainly working on her doctoral thesis on a cycle of poems by the early Franconian humanist Engelhard Funck contained in the “Codex Fuchsmagen”. This collection offers an interesting variety of forms and contents, ranging from love letters to funeral songs, praise poems and poetic self-reflection.
