Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Sources

The fourth series of Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Sources (first published as Studies in Medieval and Renaissance History from 1964–2023) provides a unique venue for scholars to offer fresh readings of evidence from the period 400–1600. 

This annual is dedicated to the fundamental scholarship of analysis and interpretation led by direct engagement with the sources––written, visual, or material––in any form, from editions, translations, and commentaries to reports, notes, and reflections. 

By foregrounding the most basic approach of working outwards from the evidence, the journal aims to foster conversations across disciplines, regions, and periods, as well as to become a reference point for original approaches and new discoveries. The editorial board has particular expertise in Western Europe and the Mediterranean, but welcomes readings of any and all sources from the premodern world. Publication will be in English; occasional volumes will be thematic.
