Research Profile

Robichaud works on Renaissance humanism in Italy, including philosophy, philology, and rhetoric. He has published on Marsilio Ficino, Angelo Poliziano, Gianfrancesco Pico, and Platonism, Neoplatonism, as well as Renaissance philosophy and intellectual history. He is currently preparing a monograph, Plato's Persona: Marsilio Ficino, Renaissance Humanism, and Platonic Traditions and critical editions and studies of Ficino's Latin translations of Iamblichus's De Secta Pythagorica and Theon of Smyrna's Mathematica. His research interests engage various aspects of Renaissance humanism: the history of philosophy and philology, intellectual history, humanist commentary and textual practices, manuscript annotations, Ficino, Poliziano, both Picos (Giovanni and Gianfrancesco), and the fortune of classical and humanist texts. He is especially interested in the history of Platonism. In 2012 he was a Frances A. Yates Fellow at the Warburg Institute, School of Advanced Study, University of London, and in 2016 he received the Olivia Remie Constable Prize in Medieval Studies to be a Fellow at Harris Manchester College, University of Oxford.
