Research Activities of the Medieval Institute

The Center for Cistercian and Monastic Studies promotes research on the Cistercian and other religious traditions. It sponsors sessions at the annual International Congress on Medieval Studies.

The Gründler Book Prize, named for the Institute's Director from 1976 to 1994, is awarded annually at the International Congress on Medieval Studies.

A distinguished scholar is invited to the WMU campus each semester to deliver the Cornelius Loew Lecture, named for an important early supporter of the Medieval Institute and its programs.

The chief locus of research activity at the Medieval Institute is the Richard Rawlinson Center for Anglo-Saxon Studies and Manuscript Research. The Center has a specialist library, publishes two book series, as well as Old English Newsletter Subsidia, and sponsors sessions at the annual International Congress on Medieval Studies
