Research Interests

Dr. Mueller is author of two monographs in English, one on The Criminalization of Abortion in the West. Its Origins in Medieval Law (Ithaca/NY and London: Cornell University Press, 2012), and another on an important medieval law professor, Huguccio. The Life, Works, and Thought of a Twelfth-Century Jurist (Washington/DC: CUA Press, 1994). He is co-editor (with Ludwig Schmugge) of volumes 3, 5, and 7 of the Repertorium Poenitentiaria Germanicum (Tübingen: Niemeyer, 2001, 2002, 2008), which catalogues (in Latin) entries relating to German recipients in the records of the Apostolic Court of Penance under Calixt III (1455-1458), Paul II (1464-1471), and Innocent VIII (1484-1492). Together with Mary E. Sommar, he has co-edited a collection of essays on Medieval Church Law and the Origins of the Western Legal Tradition (Washington/DC: CUA Press, 2006), in honor of his doctoral adviser, Kenneth Pennington. Dr. Mueller has also published articles in American, French, German, and Italian journals. They deal with late medieval legal theory, its application in the courts, and papal administration. His current project is a study of canonical bigamy, Bigamus – Law and Taboo in the Later Middle Ages, for which he has received a two-year Marie Curie Senior Research Fellowship from the European Union (2013-2014).
