Philip Rusche earned his Ph.D. in medieval studies at Yale University in 1996, specializing in old and middle English literature. He teached old English, medieval literature (on topics such as OE poetry, Arthurian romance, saint’s lives, etc.), and the history of the English language. Rusche also offers independent studies in advanced old English, old Irish, old Norse, and medieval Latin.

His research interests are glossaries and glossed manuscripts, Aldhelm, and medieval medical texts. His most recent article, on the glosses in the Lindisfarne Gospels, will appear in 2016. He has also published articles in journals such as Anglo-Saxon England, Anglia: Zeitschrift für Englische Philologie, Journal of English and Germanic Philology, Notes and Queries, Cambrian Medieval Celtic Studies, and several essay collections. Rusche has  co-written a book, Catalogue of Medieval And Renaissance Manuscripts in the Beinecke Rare Book And Manuscript Library, Yale University, Vol. 4: MSS 481-485 (Turnhout: Brepols, 2004).
