Stefan Tilg has worked extensively on Jesuit drama and has edited a number of related texts. He also has a strong interest in regional Neo-Latin production and how it relates to the larger history of Neo-Latin literature. In classical studies his focus over the past years has been on the ancient novel, especially Chariton and Apuleius. Recently he has combined this focus with Neo-Latin and has worked on early modern Latin fiction. Since 2014 he is professor for Latin philology at the University of Freiburg i. Br.
