Medieval Latin Networks! The International Medieval Latin Committee -17-18-19-20-21/09/2017, Wien (Austria)





The International Medieval Latin Committee has as its primary mission the organization of international congresses in order to further, expand, and promote the study of Medieval Latin around the world. The Committee, which has no budget of its own and charges no dues, comprises representatives from ten European countries (Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland) or regions (Scandinavia, United Kingdom) and from two North American countries (Canada, United States).

The congresses, which have traditionally assembled every four or five years, but are now taking place with increasing frequency, are the most important collective events for the international community of Medieval Latinists. They draw hundreds of Medieval Latinists from around the world to present papers on the congress topics, which are determined by the IMLC as a whole.

The International Medieval Latin Committee has existed for more than a quarter century. It came into being thanks to the efforts of Walter Berschin, who organized the first international congress of Medieval Latinists in Heidelberg on September 12–15, 1988. The field of Medieval Latin studies is not large, but it is truly international, as Latin itself has been for millennia. It is this longstanding tradition of collaboration across borders that both inspires and guides the activities of the IMLC.
