Diploma Programme in Manuscript Studies (PIMS)


Diploma Programme in Manuscript Studies

2 June - 11 July 2014

The programme consists of five core courses, including Latin Palaeography, Diplomatics, Codicology, Textual Editing, and a variable content rubric under which a number of different
special subject courses will be mounted. Courses will be available on a rotating basis, with two three-week courses offered each summer. The venue for teaching will alternate between the Pontifical Institute in Toronto and the American Academy in Rome, to take advantage of the unique resources of each institution.

Two streams are available. Students accepted to the programme may choose either simply to enrol for a single summer, that is, for the two courses offered any given year. Or, by taking four courses over two consecutive summers, and completing a final project, they can qualify for the Diploma in Manuscript Studies. The programme is open to students of any nationality who are currently enrolled in graduate programmes elsewhere and who desire to acquire technical skills that their own universities may not provide, as well as to those who have already earned their degrees but who would like to enrich themselves with further training.

Tuition is $2,000CAD. The Pontifical Institute is, however, able to offer 12 scholarships of up to $6,000CAD per year.


Applicants should send a completed application form, two letters of reference, a current c.v., and a statement of research interests by 1 February 2014 to:

Prof. M. Michèle Mulchahey
Director, Diploma Programme in Manuscript Studies
Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies
59 Queen’s Park Crescent East,
Toronto, Ontario, M5S 2C4

Spaces are limited; early application is encouraged.
