The journal Das Mittelalter provides a forum for interdisciplinary Medieval Studies. Each issue covers a different topic from the perspectives of several disciplines. The journal presents recent research, discussions and new books from various medieval disciplines and explorers their importance to Medieval Studies as a whole.
The journal first appeared in 1996.
It is published by Regina Toepfer (2017/1-2021/1) and Isabelle Mandrella (since 2021/2) on behalf of the President of the Mediävistenverband.
Frequency of publication: 2 issues per year

Thematic proposals for an issue of the journal can be submitted by academic researchers in Mediaeval Studies from both Germany and abroad. All suggestions will be evaluated by the steering committee of the Mediävistenverband and put before its advisory council. This interdisciplinary body, composed of international scholars, examines all suggestions and finally decides, after an evaluation process involving several stages, about the acceptance of a proposal.
