  • Dov Honick (medieval historiography; mythology; Midrash and Rabbinic Literature)
  • Kelsi Ray (medieval art and theology; hagiography)

The Medieval Institute was the first of its kind in the United States and remains one of the leading centers in North America for the advanced study of medieval culture. The graduate program provides students with superb technical training, but it also equips them with a holistic vision of the Middle Ages, grounded in a mastery of sources and languages and extending to the whole of its life and culture. 

Students in the Medieval Institute pursue the Ph.D. in Medieval Studies, a rigorous, interdisciplinary degree with a focus on one of the classic disciplines: history, Latin or vernacular literature (English, Italian, German, Spanish, French), theology, philosophy, music, or art history. They receive training from leading experts in their field while researching and writing in one of the best libraries in the world for medieval studies.

Graduates of the Medieval Institute are extremely competitive on the job market, and currently hold positions throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.

The Medieval Institute welcomes applications from students of high academic ability who wish to pursue a career teaching and researching the Middle Ages. Generous fellowship support and light service demands allow students to devote themselves fully to their course of study.
