Welcome to the Center for Medieval and Byzantine Studies.
The Center for Medieval and Byzantine Studies at CUA offers a meeting point and active scholarly community for researchers and students of the medieval period. It involves over forty faculty members from various schools and departments and offers an interdisciplinary program in Medieval and Byzantine Studies both at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
The Medieval and Byzantine Studies Program was organized in 1969 and operates under the general direction of an interdisciplinary committee. The purpose of the program is to promote the understanding and study of the medieval world and its cultures, to introduce students to various fields of the discipline and their methodologies, and to provide a solid basis for advanced research into the medieval period in subject areas which require a background that transcends the boundaries of a single discipline. In addition to exploring the historical and cultural developments within the traditional boundaries of Medieval Europe from ca. A.D. 300 to 1500, our students have opportunities to study Near Eastern Christianity, the Islamic world, Byzantium, and Judaism.
