The International Encyclopaedia for the Middle Ages (IEMA) is a Supplement to Lexikon des Mittelalters (LexMa). The purpose of IEMA is to supplement LexMA with newly-written commissioned articles, fully peer-reviewed as well as with articles from reference books.
IEMA draws some of its information from the following books:
- Fasti Ecclesiae Gallicanae. Répertoire prosopographique des évêques, dignitaires et chanoines de France de 1200 à 1500 (Turnhout: Brepols)
- Die Bischöfe des Heiligen Römischen Reiches 1198-1448, by Erwin Gatz (Berlin: Duncker & Humblot, 2001)
- Nationaal Biografisch Woordenboek (Brussel: Koninklijke Vlaamse Academie van België voor Wetenschappen en Kunsten, 1964- )
- Biskupi kościoła w Polsce w latach 965-1999, by Piotr Nitecki
- Normannia monastica (Xe-XIIe siècle). Prosopographie des abbés bénédictins, by Véronique Gazeau (Caen, Publications du CRAHM, 2008).
The Lexikon des Mittelalters is an indispensable tool for medievalists across all disciplines. It deals with all branches of Medieval Studies and covers the period from 300 to 1500 AD/CE for the whole of Europe and parts of Western Asia and North Africa. The ancient roots of Western civilisation, as well as neighbouring civilisations, such as the Byzantine, the Arabic and the Jewish, occupy a prominent position in the encyclopaedia. The information of the printed edition has been enriched by Brepols Publishers with English headwords, inbuilt translation aids and live links to a Cumulative Bibliography (via the International Medieval Bibliography and the Bibliographie de civilisation médiévale).
