Middle Ages for Educators


The website Middle Ages for Educators was created in the spring of 2020. It was designed for teachers, students, and any members of the broader public who want to learn about Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages (c. 300-1500 C.E.). It provides resources for both teaching and research, including short videos by world-renowned experts accompanied by discussion questions and primary source materials, introductions to medieval digital projects, workshops on how to use digital tools to study the medieval past, and curated links to associated websites with medieval content, images, digitized manuscripts, or other medieval materials. This article discusses the history, present use, and future goals of the website. It explains how it was founded, its evolution, and how and why it arrived at its current home at Princeton University. It offers examples and links of the various resources found on the site, and finally reflects on the place of the website in the current and future teaching of medieval studies, in and beyond the universities.
