Mediev-l is an academic discussion list for the Middle ages. Many of
the participants in mediev-l are professional historians or
historians-in-training, and it is this audience that mediev-l was
primarily founded to serve. However anybody interested in medieval
history is very welcome to participate.
For the purposes of this forum, the Middle Ages are defined as the
period running roughly from 300 AD to 1500 AD, though sometimes topics
may spill beyond these boundaries. Anything dealing with the history
of this period is suitable for posting to this forum. Also appropriate
are discussions of topics concerning the practice of medieval history
(i.e., historiography, academic life, etc.), and modern reactions to or
depictions of the medieval world (i.e., novels, movies, etc.).
