As a contributor to Sources of Anglo-Saxon Literary Culture, Leinbaugh has written articles on Paschasius Radbertus and Ratramnus. He has worked on charting Jerome's influence on Anglo-Saxon literature, and presented his findings at the most recent meeting of the International Society of Anglo-Saxonists at Stanford University. Leinbaugh's article "Aelfric's Lives of Saints I and the Boulogne Sermon: Editorial, Authorial, and Textual Problems," appeared in The Editing of Old English, (eds. D.G. Scragg and Paul E. Szarmach: Cambridge, England: Boydell & Brewer, 1994, 191-211) charts some of the difficulties in editing Latin and Old English texts. He is currently preparing an edition of Aelfric's liturgical homilies and their Latin sources.
