The University of Notre Dame, Medieval Institute

Endowment support
To establish an endowment for Byzantine Studies as part of Notre Dame’s Medieval Institute, and, consequently, to build one of the strongest Byzantine Studies programs in North America. The endowment will support a new tenure-track faculty position in Byzantine theology, a new tenure-track faculty position in Byzantine history, program funds for conferences, symposia, and visiting lecturers, and funds for library acquisitions in order to maintain and strengthen Notre Dame’s Milton V. Anastos Byzantine library collection.      

The university’s Medieval Institute coordinates the teaching and research of the largest contingent of medievalists in North America. There are over 60 faculty members at Notre Dame affiliated with the Medieval Institute in the departments of Art History, Classics, English, German, History, Music, Philosophy, Romance Languages and Literatures and Theology. In acquiring the collection of the late Milton V. Anastos, Notre Dame possesses the second largest dedicated collection in Byzantine history, thought and culture in the United States.

Founded in 1842, the University of Notre Dame is an independent, national Catholic University in Indiana.
