Radboud Medieval and Early Modern Studies

Welcome to the platform for Radboud Medieval and Early Modern Studies (RMEMS). We are a community of scholars at the Radboud University working on the period from c.500-c.1800 from a wide range of disciplines. Our members include research and teaching staff of the faculties of Arts and Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies. We organise interdisciplinary meetings and events to encourage the exchange of ideas and collaboration (especially across faculty boundaries) on projects that deal with the period from c.500-c.1800. Both scholars and students are welcome to participate in these events and will find this website useful to become acquainted with the very diverse medieval and early modern research and teaching activities at the Radboud University.



If you have questions about our platform or if you are a new staff member and would like to be included, please do not hesitate to contact us at:


At Radboud University, a wide variety of courses on medieval and early modern topics are taught to students. A list of all courses - bachelor and master - is included on the page below.
