The research network, Medeltidsforum Linné (MFL), unites researchers and students at Linnaeus University with a special interest in the Middle Ages in its broadest sense, including medievalism and historiography.

The network organizes a regular seminar series, as well as excursions. Participants outside of Linnaeus University are also welcome to attend these activities!

The following disciplines are currently represented in Medeltidsforum Linné:

  • Art and Art History
  • History
  • Nordic Languages
  • Literary Studies
  • Musicology

Several of the network’s researchers are involved in the interdisciplinary research project The Multisensory World of Vadstena Abbey in the Late Middle Ages, as well as in Mapping Lived Religion: Medieval cults of saints in Sweden and Finland, both financed by the Swedish Research Council.
