Description Is an indespensable research tool for medievalists of all disciplines. Based upon the most important encyclopaedia in the world for medievalists (published in German between 1977 and 1999), LexMA’s 36,700 signed articles written by 3,000 authors covers all aspects of medieval studies within the period 300 to 1500. Its geographical scope covers the whole of Europe, part of the Middle East, and parts of North Africa to document the roots of Western culture and those of its neighbours in the Byzantine, Arab and Jewish worlds.

Brepols Publishers have enhanced the data of the German paper edition through the inclusion of keywords in English, through the addition of an integral translation tool, and through the provision of links to the cumulative bibliographies, the International Medieval Bibliography and the Bibliographie de civilisation médiévale.
