Originating in the project
The Transformation of the Roman World, Brill's Series on the Early Middle Ages publishes high-quality scholarly studies on the cultures, economies and societies of Europe, the Mediterranean, and beyond, from Late Antiquity (third century onwards) through the Early Middle Ages (up until the eleventh century). The scope of this peer-reviewed series is broad and inclusive: we encourage the submission of work in archaeology, art and architectural history, history, literature and cultural studies, numismatics, paleography, religious studies, and more, including interdisciplinary research and cross-field collaborative projects. Cross-cultural, comparative, and global studies are also welcome. The series publishes monographs, multi-authored edited thematic collections, and occasionally translations and scholarly editions. The preferred language is English though the editorial board will consider works in French and German.
