Andrew J. Hicks

Assistant Professor

Lincoln Hall, Room 106



Andrew Hicks’ research focuses on the early history of musical thought from a cross-disciplinary perspective, tracing its role within the wider spectrum of philosophical, cosmological, and scientific discourse in late antiquity and the middle ages. He is particularly interested in medieval translations and transformations of ancient Greek harmonic theory in both Latin and Arabo-Persian traditions. Hicks is cross-appointed to the Program in Medieval Studies and is a member of the Graduate Fields of Classics and Near Eastern Studies. His teaching interests range from the history of medieval music theory and practice to medieval Latin language, literature, paleography, and codicology, as well as topics of a more philosophical bent.

Hicks has presented his research at numerous national and international conferences and colloquia in musicology, medieval studies, medieval Latin, and philosophy. His publications appear in the The Cambridge History of Pythagoreanism, The Oxford Handbook of Medieval Latin Literature, The Oxford Guide to the Historical Reception of Augustine, and The Journal of Medieval Latin. He has collaborated with Fr. Édouard Jeauneau on the edition of John Scottus Eriugena’s Commentary and Homily on the Gospel of John, and their collaboration continues with the forthcoming first edition of William of Conches’ Glosulae super Prisciani Librum constructionum (Institutiones 17–18).
