How to be a Stay-at-Home Medievalist

Are you under a stay-at-home or shelter-in-place order? We've got you covered! The Medieval Institute might be closed for in-person activities, but you can still be a part of the community and study the Middle Ages.

Alumni Spotlight

Each fall and spring we present a new Spotlight featuring the career paths of Institute alumni. Our Spring 2020 Spotlight features Stephen Metzger (Ph.D. '13). Dr. Metzger has recently been appointed to the position of Scriptor of Latin Manuscripts at the Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana.
