Welcome to the website of Medieval Memoria Research


Medieval Memoria Research (MMR) is an international online newsletter that provides information on current developments concerning research into the memoria culture (i.e. the commemoration of the dead) of the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Period, until circa 1600.

Background and purpose

This newsletter originally started out in September 2008 under the title Medieval Memoria Research in the Low Countries. Since September 2011 the newsletter also covers international developments, and so its title has been shortened to Medieval Memoria Research. MMR was part of the Utrecht research project The functions of art, ritual and text in medieval memoria, and now works closely with the project Medieval Memoria Online (MeMO).

The newsletter is issued twice a year, usually in March and September. It informs subscribers on recent publications, congresses and symposiums, and various news items in the field of the commemoration of the dead. It is available in English.

Current and back issues

The most current issue can always be found in the right-hand column of this website.

For an overview of the back issues of MMR, visit the PDF list. The archives give an overview of all of the publications, symposiums and other announcements that have been made in MMR over the years.

If you wish to subscribe to the newsletter, or if you wish to contribute to an upcoming issue, please contact us.
