Centre for Medieval Studies

Mgr. Robert Novotný, Ph.D., Pavel Soukup, Ph.D., Mgr. Václav Žůrek, Ph.D. (Filosofický ústav – Centrum medievistických studií)

The Centre for Medieval Studies was founded in 1998 as a joint body of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and Charles University. It was tasked with providing a platform for cooperation in advanced research and post-graduate studies between the two founding institutions in fields dealing with the Middle Ages – especially in areas transgressing the boundaries of traditional disciplines – and gaining the necessary contact with international research. Today, the CMS is engaged in fundamental research as part of grant projects in medieval studies, and organizes events to support the scientific education of doctoral candidates.
