The Lexikon des Mittelalters (LexMA) is the standard encyclopaedia for Medieval Studies and is an indispensable tool for medievalists across all disciplines.
It deals with all branches of Medieval Studies and covers the period from 300 to 1500 AD for the whole of Europe and parts of Western Asia and North Africa. The ancient roots of Western civilisation, as well as neighbouring civilisations, such as the Byzantine, the Arabic and the Jewish, occupy a prominent position in the encyclopaedia.
The information of the printed edition has been enriched by Brepols Publishers with English headwords and live links to a Cumulative Bibliography (via the International Medieval Bibliography and the Bibliographie de civilisation médiévale).
LexMA is fully integrated with the International Encyclopaedia for the Middle Ages – Supplement to LexMA, a new encyclopaedia offering supplements that complete or supplement the coverage already offered by LexMA.
