Online Research Course: European Diploma in Medieval Studies with Fédération Internationale des Instituts d’Études Mediévales, deadline 15 December 2020

Given the global Covid-19 outbreak, for the academic year 2020-2021 FIDEM has exceptionally decided to provide only a modular, online DEEM program.

Participants can choose between the Modules C (Medieval Latin I-II, Palaeography I-II, Codicology I-II, Textual Editing I-II) and D (Palaeography I-II, Codicology I-II, Textual Editing I-II, Diplomatique I-II)

All the courses will be held online in Italian, English, or French.

Classes will start on January 11, 2021 (Module C) and February 1 (Module D), and end on May 7 (Module C) and 28 (Module D).

The courses will mainly follow last year’s timetable (, except that this academic year there will be offered lectures, exercises and personal reading-courses on extra study materials prepared by the lecturers. Both Modules are included in the Erasmus + project, and are credited 30 ECTS each.

Students coming from universities with an Erasmus + agreement with FIDEM via LUMSA ( do not have to pay any enrolment fee.

Non-Erasmus + students should pay an enrolment fee of € 400.

The prerequisite for admission to these programs is a bachelor’s degree in one of the humanities.

At the end of the course a certificate of participation will be issued on request.

This certificate of participation is not equivalent to the Diploma. To receive the Diploma, the full annual program must be completed and a final essay written. The certificate of participation, however, will be accepted as partial fulfilment of the next academic year’s course for the Diploma.
