Meet the people at this scholarly crossroads. We have an amazing library and generous institutional support, but they—faculty fellows, Ph.D. students, visiting researchers, affiliated scholars—are our most cherished resource.   


Faculty Fellows

The Institute's Fellows are its core faculty. While appointed in various departments at Notre Dame, the fellows teach and carry out research on the Middle Ages as well as take an active part in the Institute's governance, programming, and graduate education.

Ph.D. Students

In our Ph.D. program—which draws on the expertise of more than fifty faculty fellows—future scholars will acquire the three things most essential to writing an outstanding dissertation: superb technical training in languages and sources, immersion in the most important contemporary scholarly discussions, and an exhilarating, interdisciplinary approach.

Visiting Scholars

Each year the Institute welcomes scores of visiting researchers, including our A. W. Mellon Junior Faculty Fellow in Medieval Studies, our Byzantine Studies Postdoctoral Fellow, stipendiary scholars working on the Ambrosiana collection, externally-funded researchers, and other academic visitors.
