The St Andrews Institute of Mediaeval Studies was founded in 2007 and brings together more than thirty academics of international standing and a very large number of research associates. It builds on the illustrious reputation of the Department of Mediaeval History which was founded in 1955, expanding to be the largest of its kind in the world. Subjects taught through SAIMS include Art History, History, Manuscript Studies, Mediaeval Languages and Literatures (Arabic, French, Old and Middle English, German, Greek, Italian, Latin, Occitan, Old Norse and Welsh), Palaeography and Theology. In 2017-18 we are celebrating our tenth anniversary as an interdisciplinary institute, a research and teaching community that welcomes scholars from all over the world.
