Short Bio

Ugo Bruschi PhD FRHistS is an historian who holds a tenured position in the Department of Legal Studies of the University of Bologna, where he teaches Medieval and Modern Legal History; he is a member of the Royal Historical Society and of other international and Italian learned societies.

His main area of research is the history of the British constitution in the long 18th century. He has also published widely on the relationship between Church and State in the Early Modern period. Other topics covered in his papers and books include medieval notaries.

Before beginning his academic career, he worked as an archivist: primary (and particularly archival) sources always play a key role in his research activity. In his work as historian, he has constantly focused his attention on the interplay between law and society or institutions, between theory and practice.
