Community home page
The field of Medieval Studies is concerned with the history, thought, and artistic expression of the various cultures on the European continent over the course of a millennium (circa 500-1500 C.E.). It arose as a challenge to traditional intellectual conventions, an alternative way of integrating bodies of knowledge that were becoming separated, and of pursuing matters that had been neglected.
The Centre for Medieval Studies was envisaged by its founders not just as an institutional umbrella for traditional departments but as a meeting point at which topics and issues for multiple disciplines would be explored and studied in depth. Medieval Studies in Toronto has an international reputation, resting on the wide-ranging interests of its faculty, the calibre and preparation of its graduates, and its outstanding library facilities.
