Master’s Programs in Medieval Studies, 2014/2015



“ The CEU Medieval Studies Department presents
ways to think differently about the medieval
histories of Central Europe and the Central Mediterranean
as well as its ancient languages. It offers
an interdisciplinary approach that was completely
unknown to me not only during my local university
education but in a certain sense also in my narrower
field of research (medieval history of art in Central
Europe). By using this methodology, I was able to
tackle connections in my doctoral research which
may have well been invisible to me otherwise.
I hope, that by writing my dissertation by these
means, I can contribute to opening up new ways
in the methodology of Hungarian (and Central
European) research of medieval art history.”
