Later Medieval Europe

This series treats all aspects of European history, society, and culture from ca. 1100 to ca. 1600. Taking a pan-European approach, it provides a forum for scholarship on a range of topics prominent in the late medieval period, such as political, economic, and social history, as well as church history, intellectual history, urban history, and the history of culture and mentality.

The series publishes monographs, edited thematic collections, and source editions and translations, and welcomes interdisciplinary research and cross-cultural or comparative studies. It aims to promote geographical parity to reach a holistic view of the European late middle ages, while connecting the different strands of pan-Continental life during this vibrant period of history, and building a bridge between the medieval and early modern periods.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to either the series editor, Professor Douglas Biggs, or the Publisher at Brill, Dr Kate Hammond.
