Professor Antony Augoustakis and Illinois PhD alumna, Barbara Wallach (Associate Professor, University of Missouri-Columbia) co-edited the late Professor Luitpold Wallach’s edition of the Libri Carolini. The Libri Carolini was composed around 790 and responds to the controversy regarding icon worship in the Byzantine and Holy Roman empires. Professor Luitpold Wallach was Professor of Classics and Medieval Studies at Illinois until his retirement in 1978. He was born in Munich, was imprisoned by the Nazis and sent to Dachau, and escaped Germany in 1939 to come to the United States. The Classics Department honors the 30th anniversary of his death by publishing his finished manuscript of the medieval work of the Carolingian court.
