Welcome to the Early Medieval Forum, an association of scholars and students in the humanities and social sciences whose work focuses on Europe and the Mediterranean ca. 500-1200 C.E. The EMF seeks to increase awareness of recent and ongoing research in early medieval studies and to facilitate contacts and the exchange of information among those interested in the field. In addition to this page, the association operates a listserv through which early medievalists raise topics for discussion, seek assistance with research queries, and announce forthcoming lectures, conferences, and colloquia, recent publications, and other events of interest.
Click here to access the important catalog by Burton van Name Edwards, “The Manuscript Transmission of Carolingian Biblical Commentaries.” I am grateful to the author for permission to post this on the EMF site.
Also noteworthy is the Historical Archive on the website of Kornbluth Photography, an excellent resource for extraordinarily beautiful photographs of late antique and early medieval artwork and artifacts.
Below is a directory of other Internet resources for the study of the early middle ages and more broadly the medieval period. If you have additional websites to suggest, please feel free to contact me (Celia Chazelle), preferably by email. Email me, too, in order to join or leave the EMF listserv.
