   The Medieval Studies Program at Brown is an interdisciplinary undergraduate program with faculty participation from many departments.  The Program also aims to support activities for graduate students who work on the medieval period in these various departments. 

    This guide aims to provide an entry into various resources that Brown has to offer in medieval studies, as well as links to other resources that may be available.   If your research has a particular disciplinary focus, it may also be helpful to consult the guide for that discipline (e.g., History of Art & Architecture, Religious Studies, Philosophy, Music, Classics (for Latin or Greek), the various vernacular literatures, etc.)
