Grégoire OGUEY

Medieval history

Grégoire Oguey (1985, Neuchâtel. Lives and works in Neuchâtel) took a degree in Literature and Human Sciences (History, Archaeology and Latin) at the University of Neuchâtel and Paris-IV-Sorbonne in 2009, with a thesis on the epigraph in the 17th century: Les ‘Monuments parlants’ de Jonas [François] Barillier. Édition critique. Presently he is an assistant and doctoral candidate in Medieval and Renaissance History at the University of Neuchâtel, and a historian at the Rechtsquellenstiftung des Schweizerischen Juristenvereins. His research concentrates for the most part on the history of the Principality of Neuchâtel – which led him to reside in Berlin – and on the history of archaeology and heritage. Starting in 2010, he is writing a doctoral thesis on the introduction of Humanism in the Diocese of Lausanne. In this context, he conducts research on clergy as (trans-Alpine) conveyors of Humanism, and studies the sojourns of Swiss clergymen in Rome during the Renaissance.
