The Journal of Medieval Latin

The Journal of Medieval Latin (JMLat) is published yearly by Brepols Publishers (Turnhout, Belgium). The Journal also publishes a subsidia series, the Publications of the Journal of Medieval Latin.

History and Purpose

The Journal of Medieval Latin, published annually since 1991, was established by a group of Canadian scholars for the purpose of encouraging new and original investigations in the field of Medieval Latin language and literature.

The editors seek to encourage a broad range of articles dealing with every aspect of Medieval Latin studies. We are aware of the difficulties in setting chronological boundaries to a subject, but we wish to emphasize our role as journal with a specialist interest in the Middle Ages rather than antiquity or the Renaissance. We encourage manuscript studies, editions and translations (singly or together), linguistic studies, articles on literary history and literary criticism, and, more broadly, studies of the Latin culture of the Middle Ages. The Journal of Medieval Latin also provides detailed reviews of important books in our field and gives special attention to the reviewing of Latin editions.

As an international journal with a Canadian provenance, we wish to stress our commitment to bilingual scholarship. We therefore welcome articles in both English and French, and we actively seek reviews from scholars who write in either language.
