The Research Group for Medieval Philology is a meeting place for researchers and graduate students at the Humanities Faculty at the University of Bergen, besides the other faculties and teaching places. The members of the group have in common that they are engaged in research with a philological slant, that is, that the study of texts stands central to their work.

The research group is open for all medievalists connected to the University of Bergen (past or present) and everyone else who is interested. If you would like to join, please contact via email. Thank you!

Philology for whom?

Philology includes the source study of language, literature and culture and is part of a tradition dating back to Humanism at the end of the 1700s. In principle, medieval philology includes all languages,
but at the University of Bergen, the focus is on European culture, in particular medieval Latin, Norse, English, German, and French.
