Exploring the Medieval Archive (5 ECTS)

Archives are among the most important repositories of medieval sources. They contain a wealth of magnificent material that provides new insights, not only to historians but also to literary historians and art historians. However, accessibility is not straightforward. The texts are often written in difficult-to-decipher handwriting, and interpreting the content is not always easy. This course aims, on the one hand, to provide practical training for Research Master's students and PhD candidates in the skill of reading medieval archival documents and understanding the text. On the other hand, the course addresses the cultural history of medieval archives and the various types of sources.
