    Peritia. Journal of the Medieval Academy of Ireland


    Peritia is devoted to the advancement of medieval studies in the broadest sense and welcomes contributions from all disciplines. The journal has a strong publication record in archaeology, computistics, hagiography, history, law and literature. While Peritia enjoys a core strength in early medieval Ireland, this has never been the only focus. Other areas of research, in particular those related to the medieval west, are well-represented.

    La revue Peritia est consacrée aux avancements dans les études médiévales, au sens le plus large du terme (vu d’une perspective insulaire toutefois), incluant l’histoire, les langues, le droit (canonique et séculier), l’archéologie et les disciplines auxiliaires. Elle est particulièrement axée sur le latin insulaire, la saisie de données et la paléographie, et a fourni d’importantes contributions en hagiographie, l’histoire de l’art, l’archéologie, la littérature, le droit irlandais vernaculaire, et l’histoire du Moyen Âge Tardif. La revue comprend une section de comptes rendus vivante et de grande envergure.
