The Lexikon des Mittelalters is an indispensable tool for medievalists across all disciplines.

LexMA is fully integrated with the International Encyclopaedia for the Middle Ages – Supplement to LexMA, a new encyclopaedia offering supplements that complete or supplement the coverage already offered by LexMA.
