About

Doctorate-level study is an opportunity to expand upon your interests and expertise in a community that really values research and to make an original, positive contribution to learning in Medieval Studies at The University of Edinburgh.

Overview

 Home of the cross-disciplinary Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, the University of Edinburgh has one of the largest communities of medieval and Renaissance specialists in the world: upwards of 70 researchers across the arts, humanities and social sciences.

Our research interests are wide-ranging and global, and include history, languages and literatures, history of art and architecture, music, divinity, archaeology, law, Celtic and Scottish Studies, and Islamic, European, and Asian Studies. Join our community and undertake a specialised research project under the guidance of two experienced and well-published supervisors. We encourage PhD theses crossing boundaries between disciplines and subject areas, and support this through the allocation of supervisors in different, relevant, subject areas where appropriate.

Facilities from the Medieval Studies at The University of Edinburgh

The historic city of Edinburgh contains exceptional resources for study and research in the Medieval and Renaissance periods. Based in the Main University Library, the Centre for Research Collections is unique in the UK, bringing together a collection of more than 400,000 rare books, six kilometres of archives and manuscripts, and the University’s collections of art, historical musical instruments and other objects. Many of our Special Collections are digitised and available online.

Programme Structure

  • The National Library of Scotland has important collections of manuscripts and early printed books, the National Archives of Scotland holds material relating to Scottish history from the 12th century, and the Royal Observatory has a significant collection of medieval, Renaissance and Early Modern astronomical and astrological texts.

  • There are fantastic medieval and Renaissance collections in the National Galleries of Scotland and National Museum of Scotland, and most of the city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with the Old Town retaining many of its medieval buildings and streets.
