European Diploma in Medieval Studies-Call for Applications

The Diploma in Medieval Studies, created at Louvain-la-Neuve in 1991 by the Fédération Internationale des Instituts d’Etudes Médiévales (FIDEM), is organised in the framework of the ERASMUS+ programme in cooperation with LUMSA University in Rome ( Students coming from universities with an Erasmus+ agreement with LUMSA (this is the case UBB-Cluj) do not have to pay the enrolment fee.

The courses, which are taught in Rome at the Norwegian Institute (, focus on methodology and teaching of auxiliary disciplines: Classical Latin, Medieval Latin, History of Libraries, Palaeography, Codicology, Diplomatic, and Text Editing.

Given the global Covid-19 outbreak, for the academic year 2021-2022 FIDEM has exceptionally decided to provide a partially blended DEEM programme, within which it will be possible to apply for both an in-class and an online course.

The in-class programme will be subject to the Covid-19 health measures issued by the Italian Government and, as the situation is almost certain to progressively stabilise, it will be provided only from 10 January 2022, starting with Medieval Latin I and continuing according to schedule (

The online programme, instead, will cover all the courses, starting on 25 October 2021 with  Italian I which is an optional course

A minimum of 6 participants is required for the course to start.

Attendance (both in-class and online) can take three forms: annual (60 ECTS), modular (30 ECTS), and personalised (2 or 4 ECTS).

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

General coordination is by Doctor Massimiliano Lenzi (Sapienza, Università di Roma) (
